Hamilton takes a picture during his Junior Day visit
3-star 2019 safety Kyle Hamilton from Atlanta, GA (Marist School) announced his top group of schools on Sunday night, and Clemson made the cut for his services.
"Thank you to all of the schools that have recruited me throughout this process," Hamilton posted.
His top schools were Clemson, Duke, Georgia, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.
Clemson made a great impression on him during his recent weekend trip for Junior Day.
"It was really fun. I had a great time,” Hamilton told TigerNet after the visit. "Getting to see the facilities and everything was awesome and getting to meet all of the people. I got to meet all of the coaches. The indoor was amazing. Obviously, they have the biggest weight room in the country, and that was pretty impressive along with all of the fun stuff like the slide, the basketball courts, the barber shop, bowling alley and all of that stuff. It was really cool."
Hamilton enjoyed hanging out with some of the people that make Clemson special.
"Definitely just the people there," Hamilton said. "I didn't get to talk to Coach Swinney personally, but he was talking to the whole group. Everyone on the whole staff seems like good, down to earth people. Coach Swinney seems like he's hired a coaching staff that he's close with and that he actually knows. They also have great football."
In 2017, he has 60 solo tackles, six interceptions, and eight pass breakups. He helped lead his high school to the 4A State Championship game and was named first-team All-State after the season.
