    • Hamilton specifically named Caden Curry and Omari Abor as two players that have impressed him this spring. However, he added that “everyone in the room” has shown tremendous progress and he looks forward to playing with them this fall.
    • Hamilton has recognized that he is the oldest player in the defensive line room and believes that puts him in a natural leadership position. Like Jerron Cage, Taron Vincent and Zach Harrison before him, Hamilton says he needs “to set the tone for the start of the season.”
    • Hamilton said he doesn’t have an “ideal” season in mind for his fifth year at Ohio State. He just wants to do what’s best the team and play his role. “I’m not too worried about stats. I just want to play football.”
    • Hamilton said one of Omari Abor’s best qualities is his hard work. He sees that in all of the Buckeyes’ freshmen and sophomore players and believes the future of Ohio State’s defensive line room is in good hands.
    • Hamilton’s message to the rest of his room is that they must stay together. Hamilton said they will succeed this spring and in the 2023 season if they can do that. “When we’re all together, man, you can’t stop us.”

    • On Jack Sawyer: “He’s a great guy. I can’t be more proud of him, just how he’s doing and how he’s relaying it to the defensive line, it’s a team effort. Going out there, doing his thing and having other people come in and do the same thing. Just proud to see all of us doing work in the way we are and him winning off of that.”
    • On his fourth-down sack to turn the ball back over to Ohio State’s offense: “It was an amazing feeling, just to do anything to help my teammates, help the team win a game.”
    • Hamilton didn’t point to Rutgers as the best game he’s had, rather saying that every game in which he contributes in some way is his best game. “The tackles and sacks will come whatever I do if I’m doing my job. That’s my best game.”
    • On how the season has gone for him as a whole: “I feel like it’s gone pretty good. Like I said, if I’m doing thing, doing my job to help the team win that’s a successful season for me.”
    • On Hero Kanu: “Hero’s doing a good job. I can’t knock him for anything he’s doing, he’s doing real well. He’s practicing hard. When he gets his time to shine he does good.”
    • On the team expanding its defensive line rotation as the season continues: “It just goes to show, you keep working hard and persevering in practice and doing everything that you possibly can do in practice it shows on the field. I’m just proud of any of the guys that come in and help us win the game.”

    • On his football future and potential to enter the 2024 NFL draft: “I’ve not made any decisions right now. I’m just focused on the Missouri game right now.”
    • On where he made the biggest improvements from 2022 to 2023: “This year, I played more in the backfield. It’s more of a confidence thing. Every time I step on the field, I know I’m gonna make a play. I’ve had that mindset. I know I have teammates next to me who rely on me to make a play. When I’m on the field, I make a play.”
    • On Ohio State’s defensive line room under Larry Johnson: “Every single day, we are with each other. We all push each other every single day, and I think that shows on the field.”
    • On Missouri quarterback Brady Cook: “The first thing that jumps out to me is his athleticism. He’s a really fast quarterback. We need to keep him contained. He can make a play with his feet. He can make a play with his arm. We have to keep him contained.”
    • On what his brother, DaVon Hamilton, told him to expect when he arrived at Ohio State: “I talk to him all the time. (His advice) was pretty much to enjoy the moment. A lot of time, you can take this for granted – these years of college. This is probably some of the best moments of your life playing here. Take something to learn every single day. It progresses you and keeps you playing football.”
    • On why he wants to play in the Cotton Bowl: “All of us are here because it’s a team thing. It could be a lot of people’s last game. This team will never be assembled (the same way) again. I am playing for ‘The Brotherhood.’ I am playing for my brothers. We are playing for each other.”
    • When asked what he would need to hear from NFL scouts to enter the NFL draft, Hamilton reiterated, “I’m not too worried about it right now. With those decisions, you have time. I’m still focused on the (Missouri) game.”
    • On playing in the Cotton Bowl: “This is my first time being in Dallas. Being here, seeing this beautiful NFL stadium, it’s an amazing feeling. I’m just soaking up the moment being here. There’s nothing like being here.”
    • Hamilton said it’s “really important” for Ohio State to win the Cotton Bowl. He said the Buckeyes “are still not over” their loss to Michigan in the final regular-season contest and that Ohio State wants to end the season on a good note.
    • On the potential for him, Tyleik Williams and Mike Hall Jr. to return for another season at Ohio State: “That would be special if those guys were able to come back. If you thought we were good this year, having that extra year would be a bonus – it would be even more dominant for our defensive line.”
    • On Missouri running back Cody Shrader: “He’s a good back, a great back. He’s like a lot of backs we played this year, and I feel like making sure we stop him before he gets going (will be huge). It’s going to be one of the crucial things we do, just making sure we slow him down. That’s the biggest part of what we have to do.”
    • On most of Ohio State’s draft-eligible players deciding to play in the Cotton Bowl: “It shows how strong the brotherhood is here. We worked every single day with each other for the past year. We’ve been grinding our butts off. We want to play for each other all the way down to the last game.”

    Ohio State DT Ty Hamilton posted an incredible 31.3% stop %age against the run in the Cotton Bowl vs. Missouri, per @PFF

    Hamilton was in for just 16 run defense snaps but made 5 run "stops," which PFF defines as "tackles that constitute a 'failure' for the offense."

    Hamilton finished the 2023 season strong. Over the final five games, he combined for... -19 total tackles -4.0 TFLs -2.0 sacks -5 pressures generated Hamilton had 6 total tackles, 2.0 TFLs & 1.0 sack in the Cotton Bowl alone.
