Six standing out for Kamara

Six standing out for Kamara

Jamil Kamara is one of the top 2014 wide receiver prospects in the country. The Virginia Beach (Va.) Bishop Sullivan Catholic star has double-digit scholarship offers, but six schools are standing out at this time.

Jamil Kamara transferred to Bishop Sullivan Catholic before last season. The transition was a smooth one for the 6-foot-2, 195-pound receiver.

"The season ended real well," said Kamara. "We won the last five games, but we didn't go to the playoffs because we lost two games earlier in the season, though. I thought I played real well."

His recruitment has continued to gain momentum over the past few months.

"I think I have 18 or 19 offers," Kamara said. "UNC (offer), Clemson (offer), UVA (offer), Michigan, LSU, and Tennessee are the schools standing out. I would say those schools are also recruiting me the hardest."

Those schools appeal to Kamara for multiple reasons.

"I feel like I would get to go to bowl games at all those schools," he said. "I also think I would get the ball a lot in their offenses and each school would help me do well in the future. Location is not a factor; I have to do what's best for me."

Some schools have been by his school recently and another will visit in the near future.

"Penn State, UVA, and Virginia Tech came by before we got out for (Christmas) break," he said. "I think Michigan is going to come down and see me work out soon. That's when stuff will probably get rolling again."

Despite numerous offers, the four-star playmaker is hoping to pick up a few more soon.

"I'm hoping to get offers from Michigan, Tennessee, Notre Dame, and Alabama, said Kamara."

With his junior year halfway over, Kamara already has a timeline for his final decision.

"I'll probably narrow my list of schools down to 10 after I take the SAT on January 26 – probably at the end of January," said Kamara. "After all the schools come by in the spring, I would like to have a top five by the end of the school year. I definitely want to make my decision before next season starts."

Kamara finished the season with 42 catches for 820 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also had 40 tackles and three interceptions on defense. Then on special teams, he returned a kickoff and a punt for touchdowns.

The No. 16 receiver in the 2014 class will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl next January.
