ESPN 150 RB Alvin Kamara near decision

7/28/2012

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Recently, ESPN 150 running back Alvin Kamara (Norcross, Ga./Norcross) named a top five of Alabama, Georgia, FSU, Oklahoma State and Tennessee. As he prepared to try and help his Southeast team make a run at the Champion Gridiron Kings at Walt Disney World. Kamara discussed his timeline when he would decide on a college.

“I want to make sure I visit all of the schools in my top five before I make my decision, and I want to see how the season goes with those five teams as well,” Kamara said. “If everything goes the way I plan I will commit in mid-September. I do not really have a leader, but I should be ready to make a choice after I take these visits.”

The No. 52 prospect had good things to say about each of the programs still under consideration.

“I did not expect a lot when I visited FSU, but I really like the family vibe that the coaching staff and atmosphere provide,” Kamara said. “All of my boys have committed to UGA. Coach (Mark) Richt and Coach (Bryan) McClendon, I pretty much love the entire coaching staff. Alabama the name speaks for itself. There is an opportunity for playing time at Oklahoma State and I think their offense really fits my style of play. Two of my teammates are at Tennessee in Ben Bradley and Jason Croom. They are recruiting me really hard and I got a chance to sit down with Coach [Derek] Dooley and his staff and I enjoyed it.
