National eyes were on 6-foot-8 Clinton High School senior Kimani Hamilton as he announced his decision on where he will play college basketball. 


Broadcasted on CBS Sports HQ, Hamilton chose the Mississippi State Bulldogs over Alabama.


Hamilton, a small forward, helped secure the 2021 MHSAA 6A State Boys Basketball Championship during his junior season with a 59-53 win over Starkville. The win was Clinton's first state championship in 19 years. 


"It was real close," Hamilton told CBS Sports HQ, "but I feel like I made the right choice."


 Kimani Hamilton is the son of Alexandria Bradley and Tang Hamilton.
