Norfolk (VA) Lake Taylor wide receiver Jamil Kamara is one of the most highly rated wideouts on the east coast and this past Wednesday, he participated in a 7-on-7 tournament at NC State.
NC State along with Virginia, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, Miami, Pittsburgh and Wisconsin recently made the cut when Kamara narrowed his list down to just seven. From the Pack's perspective, that decision coincided nicely with his trip to Raleigh.
So what did he think of NC State?
"It was great," he told Pack Pride. "They said I could come in and play as a freshman and that's very important to me. They changed my whole outlook on things.
"Coach McNutt is recruiting me and he's real cool. I like talking to him and he's always got that swag and energy with him. I like to be around him when I visit NC State."
After meeting with the coaching staff it would appear that State made a huge impression on the rising senior and where the Pack fits in his favorite's list.
"After what they told me, they're probably a top-three school right now. Virginia would be another top school, but I'm really interested in them (NC State) after what I heard from them."
While Kamara would like to wait a while before making a decision, he did hint that an earlier commitment is still on the table.
"If I know where I want to go and I get the feeling then I'm going to go ahead and commit. Most likely it will be at the Army All-American game. It could be a tell the coaches early but don't tell anyone else type thing."
Kamara is rated a four-star prospect and the No. 16 wide receiver in the nation by Scout.com.
As a junior, he had 42 receptions for 820 yards and 12 touchdowns on offense. He also had 40 tackles and three interceptions on defense. On special teams, Kamara returned a kickoff and a punt for touchdowns.
