Freshmen RBs don't Scare Kamara

UGA got one of their top remaining 2013 targets on campus Saturday and Alvin Kamara saw two freshmen at his position have huge days. That does not scare him at all though.

"My visit to Georgia was good and I had a good time. With the game coming down to the wire and being around all those UGA commitments that are friends of mine made it that much sweeter," Alvin Kamara told Fox Sports Next.

Kamara liked the excitement of the game and he also liked what the Bulldog running backs did against Tennessee.

Both Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall had over 100 yards in the game and that freshman duo does not scare Kamara at all.

"The amount of success those guys are having is crazy. I'm happy for Keith and Todd. To be ballin' as a freshman is every high school football players dream.

"The way they are playing as freshmen does not scare me at all. I feel like if I did make the decision to go to UGA, that we would all make each other better, and then win some Heisman Trophies and National Championships."

UGA coaches have to be excited about Gurley's and Marshall's success to this point, but that hasn't slowed down their pursuit of Kamara.

The four-star running back out of Norcross, Ga. knows he is wanted in Athens.

"I feel like Georgia wants me pretty bad. They recruit me hard, but they never pressure me or anything like that. Coach McClendon shoots me straight abut everything and I like that."

The Dawgs have been in the hunt for one of the best in the country from the beginning and them being close to home is one thing they have going for them and the coaching staff is another thing that stands out to him, but could UGA have something that no other school could offer him?

"I'm starting to really narrow down what I'm looking for in a school and with all my friends being committed to UGA, that just makes UGA that much sweeter," Kamara said. "I am close to Shaquille Wiggins, Tray Matthews, Reggie Carter, Brandon Kublanow, Josh Cardiello, Tramel Terry, and there is more than that. I see those dudes as family for real."

Kamara once wanted to have his mind made up by the end of the summer or even early in the fall, but he has decided to slow things down now.

He knows three schools he will definitely visit officially right now.

"I'm getting ready to set a date for Oregon and USC and I talked to Coach McClendon a little bit last night about a date so those three will definitely get a visit."

Outside of Georgia, Oregon, and USC, Alabama, Florida State, and Oklahoma State are other schools he is considering visiting.

All six schools are still being considered by the no. 15 running back in the country.
