Darius Hamilton (born December 29, 1993) is an American football defensive end. He currently attends Rutgers University.
A native of Woodland Park, New Jersey (formerly known as West Paterson), Hamilton attended powerhouse Don Bosco Preparatory High School in Ramsey, New Jersey, where he was an All-American defensive lineman. Don Bosco won back-to-back New Jersey state championships in 2010 and 2011, finishing the 2011 season as the No. 1 team in the nation according to USA Today. He participated in the 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl following his senior season.
Regarded as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Hamilton was ranked as the No. 2 strongside defensive end prospect in his class. Labelled New Jersey's most sought-after recruit since Eugene Monroe in 2005, Hamilton picked Rutgers over Miami (FL).
Described as the "gem of the highest-rated recruiting class in Rutgers history", Hamilton was the only true freshman in the regular rotation on offense or defense in 2012. He was named a captain for the 2014 season as a junior. He was named defensive MVP at the team's awards banquet. Hamilton is currently a labor & employment relations major.
Hamilton injured his knee on September 27, 2015, causing him to miss the remainder of the season. He intends to return to Rutgers for a fifth year, conditional on whether he is granted a redshirt.
Hamilton is the son of Rosita Collazo and Keith Hamilton, who played twelve years in the NFL for the New York Giants.
