    Ty Hamilton
    Pickerington Central advanced all the way to the State Semifinal relying quite a bit on its defense, and Ohio State defensive end commit Ty Hamilton is at the center of that. He leads the front seven, and his versatility makes him difficult to block at the high school level because his skillset applies anywhere he lines up. After having been to semi-state, Hamilton will definitely be fighting to get to the final as a senior but also to prove that he did deserve the Ohio State offer.

    First Game: vs. Winter Park, Aug. 30

    Game to Watch: at Pickerington North, Oct. 18

    This matchup could be penciled in every year as the game to watch, but this year has an interesting combination of prospects Ohio State is showing interest in. Ohio State commit and No. 1 overall 2021 prospect Jack Sawyer will play on the field at the same time as 2021 wide receiver target Lorenzo Styles and his quarterback, 2020 three-star Demeatric Crenshaw. Crenshaw could potentially be the second quarterback in the 2020 class if Ohio State wants to add another. Pickerington Central won last year’s competition, 16-7, so Hamilton and Sawyer will have massive pulls on this game.

    Buckeye recruit’s brother handing down wisdom
    It’s not a secret. Playing college football is harder than playing high school football.

    Duh.

    So are the rigorous weight training programs, nutrition plans and disciplinary measures. At least at your average collegiate program. Ohio State isn’t just an average program, though. All those things will be even more strenuous in Columbus.

    These are obvious truths, but that doesn’t stop plenty of top-level recruits who had been dominant studs on the high school circuit from receiving a Ndamukong Suh-sized wakeup call the minute they hit campus.

    No one is in a better position to relay that reality down to at least one soon-to-arrive rookie better than Davon Hamilton.

    Hamilton, a starting fifth-year Ohio State defensive tackle, has been able to give his little brother, Buckeyes 2020 three-star defensive line commit Ty Hamilton, some advice as Ty awaits his arrival in scarlet and grey.

    “Just prepare to work as hard as you’ve ever worked before,” Davon says of the advice he’s given his brother. “Obviously, it’s not easy. I feel like it’s hard for high school players to understand how hard it is to come here and play.”

    Ty is one of just two 2020 defensive line recruits the Buckeyes have committed — although that may soon change — but his on-field production is reportedly picking up steam.

    When asked how he thinks Ty has grown as a player from his junior season until now, Davon wasn’t able to give a definitive answer. He’s been a little busy.

    “Honestly, I don’t really get to watch him as much because of our games,” Davon said. “But from what I’ve heard he’s been playing really well.”

    Ty will come into the program with the same three-star rating as his older brother and has a 247Sports Composite rating (.8635) slightly better than Davon’s was coming out of high school (.8457).

    Here is a look at how the two compare during their senior years at Pickerington Central:

    Ty is a a slight notch better than Davon was at this stage of their careers in the eyes of the talent evaluators, and that’s just fine with the older brother. He’ll be more than happy to watch Ty surpass his own success.

    “I always wanted him to do better than me,” Davon said. “I feel like with any little brother-big bro thing, if you can come in here and do better than me, I’m gonna be proud of him.”

    WEEK 8: PICKERINGTON CENTRAL AT PICKERINGTON NORTH
    Player: Ty Hamilton
    Position: Defensive Line
    Recruitment: Committed to Ohio State
    Stat line: No defensive stats reported

    In this week eight matchup, there were Division I athletes all over the field for both teams, including two Ohio State commits. The most notable was Sawyer, but in this game, it was the other Buckeye defensive line commit that came through down the stretch.

    While 2020 three-star Ohio State defensive end commitment Ty Hamilton does not have the hype or the star power that Sawyer has, he still was able to make a huge impact on the game.

    Pickerington North is not a pass-heavy team, but when they do, it is typically a quick pass, limiting Hamilton's pass-rushing opportunities. However, he was dominant at stopping the run. His long arms allow him to separate from offensive linemen and he has the strength to blow potential blockers back into the backfield.

    Similar to his bother Davon – a current Ohio State defensive tackle – he is not a ready-made player coming out of high school, but he doesn't have to be. Hamilton has a great frame that can easily hold up to 300 pounds, making him a great fit for Larry Johnson to stash and mold into a stud, much like his brother has become as a fifth-year senior.

    Hamilton is not a player that will come in and make an impact immediately, but with the given time to develop he could be a very good player for Ohio State when called upon.

    TY HAMILTON, DE
    Arriving at Ohio State less than six months after his older brother DaVon Hamilton concluded his Buckeye career, Ty Hamilton is on campus after a short drive to Columbus from Pickerington, completing a freshman class of versatile defensive linemen that also includes early enrollees Jacolbe Cowan and Darrion Henry.

    While Hamilton could potentially end up either outside or inside with the Buckeyes, he’s a different player than his brother. He’s not built to be a massive nose tackle like DaVon, but he has good athleticism for his size – and certainly good bloodlines. Like his brother, Ty is a lower-ranked recruit who probably isn’t going to be an immediate impact player for the Buckeyes, but he’ll look to follow in his brother’s footsteps by developing into a starter and an NFL prospect by the time his Ohio State career is done.

    JACOLBE COWAN, DE
    DARRION HENRY-YOUNG, DE
    TY HAMILTON, DE

    Ohio State could potentially redshirt all three of its freshman defensive linemen, as it’s uncertain whether any of them will have a chance for substantial playing time this year. Cowan, Henry-Young and Hamilton are all expected to at least start their careers at defensive end, and the Buckeyes have plenty of depth at that spot, with Jonathon Cooper, Tyreke Smith, Tyler Friday, Zach Harrison and Javontae Jean-Baptiste all in line for snaps in the rotation. Redshirt freshman Noah Potter could also be ahead of them in the pecking order.

    As deep as Larry Johnson often rotates on his defensive line, though, there could still be opportunities for the freshmen to play if they show they’re ready, especially considering the Buckeyes have only six true defensive tackles on scholarship. It’s likely that at least one or two of the freshman defensive linemen will take redshirts, but Ohio State won’t be afraid to burn any of their redshirts either if it believes they belong on the field in some capacity.

    DT TY HAMILTON (23 SNAPS IN THREE GAMES)
    Hamilton made a big impression after arriving at Ohio State last summer and was hyped up as a potential early contributor, but he ended up playing only late-game snaps in three contests. Nevertheless, he’s a player to keep an eye out for in the defensive tackle rotation entering 2021.

    The younger brother of DaVon Hamilton, Ty Hamilton’s limited snaps last season came at the nose tackle position, where he could push Antwuan Jackson and Jerron Cage for playing time following the departure of Tommy Togiai. It’s also possible he could factor in at the 3-technique spot, though there’s less of a path to playing time there with Haskell Garrett and Taron Vincent both back.
