Va. Beach WR A Coveted Prospect

Jamil   Kamara   lived   up   to   the   billing   as   a   major   college   wide   receiver   prospect   last   season,   his   first   at   Bishop   Sullivan   in   Virginia   Beach   (VA).    The   6’2″,   195-pound   junior   hauled   in   40   receptions   for   750   yards   and   10   touchdowns,   earning   2012   first-team   VISAA   Division   II   all-state   honors   for   his   performance.    Kamara   played   for   Princess   Anne   (Va.   Beach)   his   freshman   and   sophomore   seasons,   earning   just   under   10   scholarship   offers   heading   into   his   junior   season.

Kamara   has   some   experience   on   the   defensive   side   of   the   ball,   as   he   performed   well   in   a   stint   at   outside   linebacker   while   at   Princess   Anne.    A   few   schools   have   mentioned   “athlete,”   but   most,   including   in-state   ACC   programs   Virginia   and   Virginia   Tech,   are   recruiting   the   standout   junior   for   his   talents   on   offense.    Nineteen   schools   in   total   have   offered   Kamara,   who   off   hand   rattled   off   about   half   of   the   list.

“UVa,   Virginia   Tech,   JMU,   ODU,   Clemson,   UNC,   Vanderbilt,   Towson,   N.C.   State,”   Kamara   listed.    Other   offers   include   Boston   College,   Connecticut,   Miami,   Tennessee   and   Wisconsin,   among   others.

Kamara   has   not   yet   narrowed   his   list   of   schools,   but   he   plans   on   doing   so   by   the   end   of   spring.    He   will   make   some   college   visits   in   the   upcoming   weeks   and   months,   including   a   trip   to   Penn   State   this   weekend.    The   Nittany   Lions   have   yet   to   offer.
