Hamilton enjoys all-star game

Future Hawkeye Ray Hamilton spent the past week in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina playing in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl. We caught up with the four-star prospect to talk about the experience, teaming up with two fellow Iowa commits in the game, and much more. Read what he had to say right here.

Q: What was the all-star game experience like for you last week?

HAMILTON: It was a great experience overall. I'm really happy that I got invited and that I went. I got to meet some really cool guys and some really talented guys. Getting to play with guys of that caliber, where about everybody is going to a BCS school, I mean practices and the game were really competitive. There was some big time talent there, so I think I bettered myself as a football player and I learned a lot. There were a lot of coaches with NFL backgrounds, so I was there as a student just trying to learn as much as I can and take it on to next year.

As a senior, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Hamilton caught 55 passes for 902 yards and 11 touchdowns in leading Strongsville to a 6-4 record. In June, the four-star prospect committed to Iowa over 32 other scholarship offers, which included Florida State, North Carolina, UCLA, Michigan, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Oregon, Oklahoma, Boston College, Colorado, Cincinnati, and Stanford, among others.
