Hamilton is a two-year starter for Texas and this spring took over as the Longhorns’ leadoff hitter. Hamilton is a well above-average runner and his game is built around that speed. The lefthanded hitter does a good job of putting the bat on the ball and using his speed to create base hits. Listed at 5-foot-11, 170 pounds, he likely won’t ever hit for much power, but his speed helps him generate doubles and triples when he puts the ball in the gap. Hamilton’s hands and speed work well up the middle. His speed and defense figure to push him up draft boards next spring if he continues to improve at the plate.
