Three-star Memphis tight end Cormontae Hamilton commits to Ohio State

Whitehaven standout tight end Cormontae Hamilton became the latest recruit from Tennessee to choose Ohio State.

Hamilton — the No. 22-rated prospect in the state for the class of 2019, according to 247Sports Composite — announced his commitment to the Buckeyes on Twitter.

Hamilton, a 6-foo1, 256-pound athlete, is the No. 30 tight end in the country and No. 718 overall prospect in the nation, according to 247Sports.

“Obviously in the new age of the hybrid tight end, you want them big enough to play tight end and skilled enough to play wide receiver,” Whitehaven coach Rodney Saulsberry said.

Commitments are nonbinding for the athlete and the school. Saulsberry said Hamilton likely would sign during the 72-hour early signing period, which begins Dec. 19.

He joins Christ Presbyterian Academy linebacker Kane Patterson as Tennessee players that have committed to Ohio State for the class of 2019.

Hamilton was named to The Commercial Appeal’s All-Metro second team a year ago.

He also had offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, Memphis and Tennessee.
