Three-star receiver has a top two

A player that has seen his stock skyrocket with some hard work over the summer is Texarkana (Texas) Texas High wide receiver Cobi Hamilton. At 6-foot-3 190 pounds, Hamilton has the size to be a big time college receiver. This summer he has proved that he has the talent to go with it.

"I went to OU, Tulsa, Arkansas, TCU and LSU camps over the summer and they went real well," Hamilton said.

Currently, Hamilton holds offers from the likes of Kansas, Kansas State, Arkansas, Missouri and others. There is one more score he would love to pick up an offer from.

"I'm real interested in LSU but I still haven't heard anything from them," he said.

With LSU's class filling up quickly, Hamilton may be on the outside looking in for an offer from the Tigers. However, among the offers that he does have. Hamilton has one school sitting near the top of his list.

"Arkansas is still very high on my list," he said. "My mom played basketball at Arkansas and my dad also went there so I feel a little pressure to go there. My parents have always wanted me to go to Arkansas so they are pushing me to go there a little."

Along with Arkansas, Hamilton lists Missouri at the top of his list of potential programs. However, Arkansas also had the opportunity to host him at camp this summer where he was able to build a relationship with some coaches.

"While I was at the Arkansas camp, I spent a lot of time with Coach Petrino," he said. "He's real cool. He definitely knows what he's talking about at the receiver position."

A three-star prospect, Hamilton caught 29 passes for 726 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.
