Isaac Hamilton Sends Letter of Intent to UTEP

Saturday it became official. 5 star recruit Isaac Hamilton is officially a Miner as UTEP has received and validated Hamilton's National Letter of Intent.

The UTEP athletics department confirmed today that 5 Star shooting guard Isaac Hamilton has signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Miners. The letter was received today, and has been validated by UTEP officials.

Coach Tim Floyd had this to say:

"This is a great day for UTEP...I feel like we have just signed a young man who will play in the NBA. We intend to play Isaac at the point guard position. We see a lot of Seth Curry in him – a big guard who can score. Isaac is not only a really capable scorer and shooter, but has the instincts to make players around him better. We feel like with Isaac and McKenzie Moore, we’re returning to how our teams looked at USC with big point guards like O.J. Mayo [Dallas Mavericks] and Gabe Pruitt [Boston Celtics) who can play together and play off of each other."

Hamilton is in his senior year at St. John Bosco High School in the Los Angeles area, and is once again expected to be an All State player. A year ago as a junior, he averaged 24.3 points, 9.6 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 2.2 steals. But, Isaac is more than just an athlete, according to his coach Derrick Taylor, "he's the ultimate student-athlete".

"He is completely no maintenance. He will go to class. He's the first one at practice and the last to leave. He is skilled and he scores a lot of points. He understands the importance of balancing scoring with making plays for others."

There is no doubt that Isaac is going to be making an immediate impact for this team, and it's nice to know that he is officially a Miner. We'll keep track of his progress as he makes his way through his senior year, and we'll keep you updated on it right here at MinerRush.
