Will Kamara and Nkemdiche play together?

By Kipp Adams

Much has been made about the friendship between three-star cornerback David Kamara (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) and No. 1 overall prospect Robert Nkemdiche (Loganville, Ga./Grayson). The two have discussed playing together numerous times and came quite close to accomplishing that last summer, when the teammates committed to Clemson together.

Both since have decommitted, putting Ole Miss in the driver’s seat to get the talented duo. The opportunity arose Sunday for Kamara to go in a different direction if he chooses.

“Coach (Derrick) Ainsley from Kentucky called me and told me he wanted me to come in and play for the Wildcats, because they need more cornerbacks,” Kamara said. “That felt good, because they play in the best conference in college football. I know people think me and Robert are going to the same school, but in the end I have to find the best opportunity for me to play."

The 5-10, 175-pound defensive back says he intends to check the Wildcats out on an official visit, but he is not sure of a date yet, because he and Nkemdiche have another visit to plan.

“I am going to take officials to Ole Miss, Kentucky and probably LSU,” Kamara said. “Robert and I will either visit LSU this weekend or Feb. 2, and I will visit Kentucky the other one.”

With those three programs all under consideration as signing day approaches, Kamara says these trips will be vital to his final decision.

“The official visits are going to be really important as I get to know the coaching staffs better and see where I fit on the depth charts at Ole Miss and Kentucky, and see if LSU is going to offer me or not,” Kamara said. “Ole Miss has been constantly talking to me, and Coach (Wesley) McGriff is always on me, but Brick Haley has been talking to me a lot lately, and so has (defensive backs) coach Corey Raymond.”
