Three-star defensive end Ty Hamilton has committed to Ohio State, he announced via Twitter on Sunday.
The Hamilton File
- Class: 2020
- Size: 6-foot-3, 250 lbs.
- Pos: DE
- School: Pickerington Central
- Composite Rating: ★★★
- Composite Rank: 47 (DE)
Hamilton is the brother of Ohio State senior Davon Hamilton and chose the Buckeyes over Penn State and Michigan.
Rated as the No. 47 defensive end in the 2020 class, Hamilton had camped with Ohio State during the June 6 one-day camp and then made his official visit this weekend. He had already taken his official with Penn State and has an official scheduled with Michigan next weekend.
The classification of defensive end is fairly constricting for what Hamilton brings to Columbus. His versatility allows him to be considered a defensive end, defensive tackle and different molds of each of those positions. He will likely need to add more weight in any case, but his frame lends itself to a good amount of added weight, which only adds to the versatility.
Hamilton is the 12th commitment of the 2020 class for Ohio State, but just the second defensive commitment and first defensive line commitment. Ohio State's class of 2020 now ranks seventh in the nation and remains first in the Big Ten.

He is a likely candidate to redshirt his first season in the program, though the Buckeyes have several senior defensive linemen this year – including Jonathon Cooper, Jashon Cornell and Robert Landers in addition to his older brother – and defensive end Chase Young is a candidate to leave early for the 2020 NFL draft.
