Potomac School guard Cullen Hamilton picks Holy Cross
Cullen Hamilton had low expectations as he boarded an airplane and flew north for a campus visit earlier this month. But after taking a tour of the Holy Cross campus and enjoying his trip to Worcester, Mass., the Potomac School guard knew where he wanted to play his college basketball.
On Sunday night, Hamlton phoned Crusaders Coach Milan Brown and accepted a scholarship offer to play for Holy Cross.
“In all honesty, I never really expected to take Holy Cross seriously, didn’t expect much out of the visit,” Hamilton said. “When I went up there, I didn’t expect it to be so nice. … Up until this past Monday, I never really saw myself in purple and while.
“I was comfortable being away from home.”
Hamilton picked the Crusaders over the Patriot League’s local member, American University.
In recruiting Hamilton, Holy Cross’s coaches stressed their considerable ties and their players’ connections to the Washington area. The Crusaders’ roster this season includes freshmen Justin Burrell from Potomac (Va.) High, Malcolm Miller from Gaithersburg and forward Taylor Abt from Georgetown Prep.
Hamilton, though, said that did not play a role in his decision. The 6-foot-3 senior, who averaged 22 points per game last season, simply liked how he felt on campus.
“He can really shoot the ball,” Potomac School Coach Levi Franklin said. “The last couple years, we’ve been working on him scoring off the bounce a little more and finishing at the rim. He can shoot the ball as well as anyone. He doesn’t get frustrated if he misses two or three in a row. Our motto is shooters shoot. And he shoots a high percentage as well.”

College of the Holy Cross landed their third commitment in the class of 2011
on Sunday, gaining a verbal pledge from Taylor Abt, a six-foot-eight power
forward from Georgetown Prep in Bethesda, Maryland. Abt committed at the
conclusion of his official visit to the Worcester campus.
Malcolm Miller, Gaithersburg MD High School
Malcolm Miller, 6'4", 160lb, Class of 2012, Gaithersburg HS (MD) - Could have been the star of the 15 and under championship, hitting an overtime producing, NBA three point range jumper virtually at the buzzer, and also providing a steal and subsequent layup in OT for the Maryland Canes.
Can shoot and defend. His handle is good, but can be better. Of course Miller must get stronger to be the swingman he projects to be.
