DULUTH, Ga. – The Monday night of Final Exam week gave us a chance to catch up with Duluth High as they hosted Mountain View High. Duluth is led by one of the state’s top senior prospects in Eric Hamilton. Here’s our take on the action that occurred inside the Joe Marelle Gymnasium.
1) Wichita State stole one in Eric Hamilton.
The aforementioned Hamilton had to sit out the 2012-13 high school season after transferring from North Gwinnett High. A 6-foot-8 power forward, Hamilton showcased his skill at both the NBA Top 100 Camp and OnTheRadarHoops.com Showcase after the season was over. His play was impressive enough to draw the interest of multiple Division One colleges and universities. OTRHoopsReport.com Publisher Shun Williams remarked that schools including Auburn, Georgia and Wichita State were involved with Hamilton’s recruiting before he chose the Shockers after his official visit. In Hamilton, coach Gregg Marshall gets a versatile four-star prospect capable of attacking the rim with reckless abandon or knocking down the open jump shot.
2) The future is bright at 3737 Brock Road.
Duluth coach Eddie Hood has welcomed an influx of talent into the halls of Duluth High since taking over the reigns of the program in the summer of 2012. Their pre game warm-up shirts even say “New Duluth.” The gym was rocking with the latest hits before the Wildcats took to the floor delivering sweet music of their own. With plenty of talent on the floor in the sophomore class including AJ Cheeseman, Kai Lambert and Anthony Stowell, don’t expect Hood to leave anytime soon.
