four three visitors in last weekend. At this point, three two of them (CB Dre Kirkpatrick, LB Jarvis Jones) appear to be longshots, but the visitor that intrigued me is Texarkana WR Cobi Hamilton. We were late getting into the game on Hamilton, which is unfortunate, because after viewing his film and reading up on him, he's the most intriguing WR prospect in the state.
The Razorbacks have recruited him the longest and hardest and can offer immediate playing time (and both of his parents are grads). Ryan Mallett used to be his HS QB. So we have some ground to make up.
He looks to be a legit 6-2 or 6-3 with a big frame; ignore his reported 40 time and trust the film. The kid can run. When you finish fourth in the 200 meters at the AAU National Junior Olympics with a 21.41, speed is not a concern. He also has a 36 inch vertical leap.
As for production, it's there:
No Yds Avg TD
2007 (Jr.) - 29 726 25.0 7
2008 (Sr.) 64 1,071 16.7 14
I'm looking at his film and the total package and wondering if we're not looking at the next Dezmon Briscoe.
I don't dwell on the star ratings, but if you're someone that does, this is a good example of a 3 star that you always pursue: small town East Texas, two parents with degrees, great frame, great athletic ability, production, hasn't seen a weight room.
