Comfort zone in T-town

Alvin Kamara, four-star running back from Norcross, Ga., landed more than 100 letters in a single day from the University of Alabama. He is spending the week in Tuscaloosa and recaps the first day visiting the 2011 BCS National Champions.

"I am spending the whole week over here at Alabama," said Alvin Kamara. "I will probably leave Thursday night. Today was pretty cool. I sat in a meeting with the running backs and watched practice.

"I spoke with coach Saban. He was telling me he was happy to see me here. He told me he wants me to get comfortable with everything at Alabama."

A comfort level is obviously the theme of the week in Tuscaloosa for the Georgia product.

"It was cool to sit in with the running backs," Kamara said. "It was cool to talk to coach Burns, Eddie Lacy and Dee Hart. Coach Burns was just telling me to get comfortable with everything.

"I am getting comfortable down here and used to everything. I am finding out where everything is located."

Kamara added what stands out about the Tide program, "Alabama produces great running backs with Trent [Richardson] and Mark Ingram. I really like how they do things and how hard they work."

Alabama has two National 100 running backs, Altee Tenpenny and Tyren Jones, already on the commitment list in the class of 2013.

"It doesn't bother me at all," Kamara said. "They told me not to let it bother me. They said all of us can push each other. Anywhere you go you have to compete."
