Kamara recaps Pitt official
This past weekend, Jamil Kamara took his official visit to Pittsburgh. "I had a great trip," said the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Kamara, who is down to the Panthers, Virginia and Wisconsin. "Everything went very well and I had a good time." Certain parts of the visit stuck out. "Me and Tyler Boyd had a good time," he said. "He was my host and we hung out a lot. I enjoyed seeing all the facilities and getting to know the team. And I got to chill with the coaches and I got to go watch their practice, so that was a good thing, too." He spoke with Boyd about the future and where the program was going. "Tyler and I just talked about what we could do together on the field," he said. "We also talked about how we could make an impact on Pitt's program and he told me Pitt was a program on the rise." Kamara spoke in-depth with wide receivers coach Bobby Engram. "We talked a lot," Kamara said. "We had a lot of good conversations. He's not just all about football – he's more into being there for you and helping you become a better man. "We also talked about the future of Pitt's program and how Boyd and I could do big things." He also spent a significant amount of time with Pittsburgh head coach Paul Chryst. "We were together a lot and we had a good conversation before I left," Kamara said. "He just told me a little about himself. He also talked about how he really cares about his players and how he's going to be there for them. He said he can see Pitt on the rise and that he knows they're getting better." Chryst let four-star prospect know he felt Pittsburgh was the right place for him. "He told me he thought I would fit great into the program," Kamara said. "He said there is a great opportunity for me to come in and play early – that if I come in and do what I need to do – I'll be out there with Boyd making plays." The official visit made things even harder for Kamara. "It's really tough right now," Kamara said. "Pitt and Wisconsin are very high up there. I have my visit to UVa next weekend and it's going to be a very hard decision." While he has been to Virginia several times, Kamara said he will be looking for some specific things on his upcoming trip. "I want to see how they see the program evolving into a better program," Kamara said. "I want to see what their plans are for the future and talk to the players and see what they think about it, too. I'm just going to take it all in. "I want to see how I could come in and help them out and improve the program. I also want to sit down and talk to coach (Mike) London and see what he thinks about everything." With less than a month before he makes his decision, where does each school stand? "I'd say Pitt and Wisconsin are tied at No. 1 and UVa is behind them," he said. "After my visit to UVa, I'm going to sit down and weigh out the pros and cons of each program, talk to some close family members and players from each team. Then I'll just go from there" He will make his decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 4, 2014 in San Antonio, Texas.
