His cousin, 2015 tight end Hasani Smith committed to the Aztecs along with two others and Hamilton said he wanted to be an Aztec.
But a couple days later, Hamilton decided he wasn't quite ready to go all in with the Aztecs.
"I love the school San Diego State but I have decided to open my options back up and decommit," said Hamilton.
"San Diego State offered him not too long ago and he really does like them and Coach (Tony) White, but he's not quite ready to commit to anyone yet," said Kordell Knox of Gridiron Football Academy and Hamilton's 7v7 coach. "He's got two years and he probably needs to take a little bit more time."
