Kamara Looking for a Place to Call Home

Jamil Kamara

Bishop Sullivan Catholic (Virginia Beach, Va.) Jamil Kamara is one of the hottest wide receivers in the 2014 class. Kamara talks to HooNation about Virginia, and what he needs to see from a program before saying yes.

Jamil Kamara is one of the best wideouts in the 2014 class and his list of suitors is already at double digits.

"I'm looking for a school where I can get the best education, a place where I can play as a freshman and a place where that feels home," said Kamara.

The Bishop Sullivan Catholic (Virginia Beach, Va.) receiver is generating offers from around the country including: Miami, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Virginia among others. But for the 6-foot-2, 195 pound junior it is an instate school leaving quite an impression.

"They're (UVa) the hometown school," he said.  "I also know the coaches would never lie to me – they're real honest.  They're like family to me," explained Kamara. " All my friends are going there to play, and I know I would have some guidance there. I also feel like I would have a chance to start as a freshman, which is a huge thing."

Friends like his "twin", Bayside's five star safety, Quin Blanding.


"Quin's trying to get me to go to UVA – we talk about it a lot," said Kamara. "I'm trying to get up there and meet the new coaches."

Kamara might not know the new coaches, but the wide receiver does know Head Coach Mike London. He is impressed by London not only in a football stand point, but how the coach approaches his players far away from the gridiron.

"He's a good coach," said Kamara. "He's done a fantastic job. You can just tell when you meet him that he's a good guy and that he's is honest. Coach London doesn't only care about football – he cares about you as a man. So that's important."

Although, Blanding is a great catch by the Cavaliers, Kamara is excited about another commit heading to Charlottesville in 2014, Chancellor High's (Fredericksburg, Va.) offensive lineman Steven Moss.


"It's another big name going there," he said. "It's another good player, so that's definitely important. Wide receivers need offensive lineman!"

The Crusaders standout has visited UVa "four or five times", but will not be among the prospects visiting Saturday for the Virginia Spring game - because he will be attending a 7 on 7 tournament.

Kamara finished the season with 42 catches for 820 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Crusaders. He also left his mark on defense and special teams - finishing with 40 tackles and three picks on defense, while returning a kickoff and a punt for a pair of touchdowns.
