Daniel Hamilton enjoyed his official visit to UConn so much it gave him a vision for the future.
“I can see myself at UConn,” he told SNY.tv following the visit.
“Me and Coach [Kevin] Ollie got along real well. I’ve known him since before he was the coach at UConn.”
Hamilton is a 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Los Angeles St. John Bosco and the younger brother of Jordan Hamilton, who plays for the Denver Nuggets, and Isaac Hamilton, who plays at UTEP.
Ranked No. 28 in the Rivals 150 for the Class of 2014, Hamilton holds offers from UTEP, UConn, USC, UCLA, Arizona, Colorado, UNLV, San Diego State, Washington and Arizona State.
He has no other visits planned at the moment, but UConn is right up there for now.
“It went well,” he said. “I could see myself there.”
