Is Pitt The Favorite For Tyler Hamilton?

Matt Canada has the Pitt offense rolling right now. Everything that he’s calling is working and the Panthers are routinely putting up 35 points per game.

If you’re a skill player, why wouldn’t you want to be a part of it? The offense is exciting and recruits are taking notice.

Tyler Hamilton is a highly skilled receiver and he’s one of the many high school players that have taken note of the Panthers’ new high-powered offense.

Hamilton (5-9, 160) is a wide receiver from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. 247 Sports rates Hamilton as a 3-star prospect with offers from Texas, Purdue, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wake Forest and Missouri.

The speedy wide receiver doesn’t have an offer from the Panthers yet, but has been in constant contact with Pitt’s wide receiver coach Kevin Sherman.

“Coach Sherman he’s a funny guy and he feels that I can have a big impact in Pitt’s offense,” said Hamilton. “I think I’m very fast and have natural catching ability. I can get in and out of my breaks quick and I’m a threat in the return game.”

“I like Pitt’s football tradition and all the players that they’ve put in the pros.”

As I mentioned, Hamilton doesn’t hold an offer from Pitt but that could change when he visits Pitt, something he’ll be doing twice in the next three weeks.

“I am coming to Pitt next weekend on the 26th for the Syracuse game and then for an official in early December,” said Hamilton.

I asked Hamilton what Pitt is saying to him about his game and also what they’re saying about an offer.

“Coach Sherman just tells me that they would love to have a smaller speedy slot receiver,” said Hamilton.

“They have talked about offering and I would commit as soon as possible if they offered me.”

Pitt already has verbal commitments from 2 wide receivers (Dontavius Butler and Darian Street) and are also involved with Connor Heyward, D.J. Edwards and Carmoni Green (committed to Illinois).
