Alvin Kamara of Norcross (Ga.) is one of the top junior running backs in the country. So, it’s only customary that he will be receiving phone calls and letters from some of the biggest football programs in the land. But what he says showed up in his mail box one day recently is unprecedented: 105 letters, all from the Alabama Crimson Tide. I wonder if the Tide might be interested in him.
“I was shocked,” Kamara told Rivals.com. “I didn’t expect there to be that many in the mailbox. When I opened it, it was overflowing and some of them fell out.”
Kamara’s 1,500-plus yards rushing for Norcross last season and stellar performance in the Rising Seniors Georgia Junior Bowl in December has made him one of the most prized recruits in his state. A four-star prospect according to Rivals, he’s already received scholarship offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Clemson, among others.
Whatever school he decides to play for will probably be lucky to have him. But let’s just hope his mom will be on board.
