Darius Hamilton will announce Tuesday night.

Fans of Rutgers, Florida, Cal and other programs won't have to wait quite so long to see where Darius Hamilton ends up. Hamilton was scheduled to sign on National Signing Day (February 1), but now comes word, according to Luke Stampini, that Hamilton will sign on Tuesday. Tuesday night, to be exact, on the Madison Square Garden Varsity cable network.

The defensive end plays for New Jersey's Don Bosco Prep. Son of former NFLer Keith Hamilton, Darius is 6'4" and 250 pounds. He shows great promise against the run, but can also rush the passer. Hamilton's skills against the run likely come from him playing a good bit of defensive tackle in high school. He's clearly been coached up, and uses his hands well for a prospect of his age. The four major recruiting services award Hamilton five stars as a rating.

Rutgers was once considered a heavy favorite to land Hamilton, but now, according to SB Nation New York, the loss of head coach Greg Schiano to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have Rutgers slipping.
