7/31/21: Hamilton totaled 56 tackles, an interception and six passes broken up in 2020. In 2019, he put together an excellent freshman season for Notre Dame, showing good ball skills with four interceptions and six passes broken up to go along with 41 tackles.
On top of playing well, the 6-foot-4, 216-pounder has upside as well as very good height and length for the position. Hamilton shows the versatility to play free safety or strong safety, to serve as the eighth man in the box, and or to handle man coverage on tight ends. The only role he should not be assigned is playing man on slot receivers, but he is a tough run defender who has excellent instincts in pass coverage. Hamilton has intelligence, good vision, and superb closing speed. He possesses the potential to be an excellent NFL safety. It would be surprising if Hamilton returned to Notre Dame for 2022, but he has enough eligibility to be a prospect in the 2023 NFL Draft.
