2015 Commit #3 – Treveon Hamilton
Superlatives: Second team all-district (13-5A)
2013 Stats: 30 catches for 364 yards and one TD
My Take: Hamilton may not be as sexy of a commitment as Hopkins, Guidry, or Shorts but he’s an important one. Outside of Earon Holmes, UTSA doesn’t really have a large target to throw to in the red zone. They thought that they had found one in John Cole Neph of the 2014 class but he opted to pursue an opportunity to walk on at Oklahoma State. Much like Neph, Hamilton is a strong but long receiver that won’t break off for many yards after catch but can generate big plays by creating spacial separation from shorter defensive backs. I think Hamilton is a guy that will be a better football player in college than he was in high school since his skills will be better complemented with an accurate quarterback that can deliver well-placed balls to a tall target. Treveon shows terrific blocking ability while split out-wide, an ability that the coaching staff surely cherishes.
WR Recruiting Moving Forward: It’s very feasible that UTSA takes a third wide receiver in the 2015 class. As Matty pointed out in his Shorts breakdown, UTSA is losing a lot of bodies after the 2014 season. UTSA currently has an offer out to Billy McCrary, an athlete that could certainly project as a wide receiver at the next level. I think the rest of the kids that UTSA offers at this position will be versatile athletes that could play several positions.
