4 Star SF Daniel Hamilton Prospect Profile
This St. John Bosco small forward is quite a rebounding force; Daniel Hamilton is the twelfth ranked small forward in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class.
As you can see at the play in slow motion at 1:00, Hamilton has remarkable hang time that allows him to finish plays in the lane, make floaters, and then get the opposing defense out of position.
He makes a play at the 2:23 mark that sets up his teammate perfectly; that is exactly what scouts want to see from this young man. He can either finish in the lane himself or dish it off to one of the bigs.
He makes a dunk at the 3:00 mark that shows how he will be able to play above the rim at the next level. All of these highlights came against Mater Dei, one of the top high school basketball programs in the country.
Hamilton has a super advanced midrange game, but also needs to work on his strength to be successful at the next level. His passing ability and ballh handle are both elite for the small forward position as well. He’s a player you can give the ball to with the game on the line, and he will do something intelligent with it. He is currently undecided, but rumor has it that Rick Pitino has very high interest in this young man.
