Kamara visits UVa

Jamil Kamara is no stranger to UVa, but last weekend's visit was a special one.

Four-star Bishop Sullivan, (Va Beach) wide receiver, Jamil Kamara made the trek up I-64 to Charlottesville this past weekend to check out UVa's scrimmage.

"It went great," Kamara said of the UVa visit.

"I talked to all the coaches, watched the scrimmage, watched the offense and how they're running it and everything, so it was a good visit."

Kamara's recent trip to Charlottesville was an important one, as it was his first time meeting Virginia's new offensive coordinator, Steve Fairchild. Kamara met with the new OC, and got to see his offensive vision first hand during the scrimmage.

"He seemed like a really good coach," Kamara said of Fairchild.

"We sat down at dinner and he was talking about his pro-style offense, how he runs it, how I fit in it, and people that he's coached in the past. I was really impressed."

So, what did Kamara notice about the new Virginia offense?

"The combination of how they were running the ball and throwing the ball stood out," Kamara noted.

"David Watford looked good throwing the ball, the receivers looked good, Smoke Mizzell looked really good running the ball too."

Kamara was not alone during his trip to Charlottesville. The senior wideout was joined by a plethora of UVa commits, including Bayside safety, Quin Blanding, Oscar Smith defensive tackle, Andrew Brown, and Woodgrove's J.J. Jackson. In addition to the Virginia pledges, highly ranked prospects from the class of 2015, Tim Settle, Matthew Burrell, and Austin Clark were also in attendance, making Saturday's scrimmage a star-studded affair.

"It was good because a lot of them were committed and they were telling me to just go ahead and do it," Kamara said with a smile.

"Those are all my boys so we had a good time,"

Recently, Kamara released his top five, which included UVa, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, and Old Dominion. The 6-2, 205 pound playmaker discussed the family-like feel at both Virginia and Pitt.

"I just fell like [Pittsburgh] and UVa, I feel real comfortable at," Kamara said.

"Virginia has been with me since day one. They're my home school and one of the closest schools to me. Coach London is a really good coach, and I'm really close with their wide receivers coach."

"With Pittsburgh, I'm from Pennsylvania and not everybody knows that. My family lives in Pittsburgh and my cousin lives right by the school."

With the start of the high school season only days away, what's next in Kamara's recruitment process?

"Right now I'm setting up five officials, so that is the next thing besides the UVa-Oregon game," Kamara said.

"I'll probably take my official to UVa for the Clemson game [on November 2nd], and I'm still trying to set the rest of them now."

Kamara says he will trim his list to three schools after the season, before making his selection at the Army All-American game in January.
