Ohio's top TE for the class of 2011 might just end up in Ann Arbor next season. Ray Hamilton was one of the more high profile recruits at the Michigan Junior Day, and he was impressed with everything UM has to offer.
Hamilton's father was a teammate of Rich Rodriguez when they played at West Virginia together, and the two have remained friends ever since, making the Hamilton family very comfortable with the Michigan program.
Hamilton spent most of the visit with Offensive coordinator/TE coach Calvin Magee, and the two bonded well over the course of the day. Ray clearly has good relationships with the Wolverine staff, something that will be important in his final college choice.
As usual, the parents came away thrilled with the academic side of Michigan, which is a huge tool to have in recruiting. Hamilton is by no means ready to make a decision, and he still remains open to all schools. However he claims he will have cut it down to five by the summer, I'll be shocked if Michigan are cut!
