Both are sons of former NFL players. Elijah Hamilton's father is Ruffin Hamilton, who was a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons. Baylen Buchanan's dad is Ray Buchanan, who spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, Falcons and Oakland Raiders and was a two-time Pro Bowler.

A three-star recruit out of Blessed Trinity Catholic School in Roswell, Georgia, he considered Army and Navy but ultimately signed with Vanderbilt in 2016. - Monroe News Star
