After announcing his decision to attend UTEP Friday on ESPNU, shooting guard Isaac Hamilton (Los Angeles/St. John Bosco) signed his official letter of intent with the Miners on Saturday.
"This is a great day for UTEP," Miner head coach Tim Floyd said in a press release. "I feel like we have just signed a young man who will play in the NBA. We intend to play Isaac at the point guard position. We see a lot of Seth Curry in him -- a big guard who can score. Isaac is not only a really capable scorer and shooter, but has the instincts to make players around him better. We feel like with Isaac and McKenzie Moore, we're returning to how our teams looked at USC with big point guards like O.J. Mayo [Dallas Mavericks] and Gabe Pruitt [Boston Celtics) who can play together and play off of each other."
Hamilton averaged 24.3 points, 9.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists as a junior. He will join SF Jake Flaggert (Lucas, Texas/Lovejoy) in El Paso next season.
