DE Kamar Frost created quite a bit of buzz headed into the 2007 season and for good reason. As a junior he tallied 74 tackles, 30 tackles for a loss, nine sacks, and four forced fumbles, and he totaled seven catches and a touchdown at tight end.
This season Frost helped propel Jones Senior High School in Trenton, NC to the third round of the state playoffs and an overall record of 9-5. His best game of the year may have come against Rosewood when he logged three sacks in a winning effort.
At 6-5, 215 pounds, Frost is a lean, rangy player with great explosion off the line and the ability to consistently create havoc in the opposition's backfield. While not the most physical player at the point of attack, he routinely uses his quickness to run past slower offensive linemen to make a play.
Frost's potential didn't go unnoticed by the college scouts as he attracted early interest from schools like NC State, East Carolina and others. He's still on the radar of the Wolfpack in particular but any hopes of him suiting up for State in 2008 appear slim.
"I'm getting mail from State just about every week," said Frost. "They haven't been by the school yet, though. East Carolina and NC A&T have been by to see me though."
As for which school he would prefer to attend, Frost left little doubt.
"State is my top school," said Frost. "That's where I'd like to play. The coaches there know all about playing championship football."
However, any chances of playing at State will likely have to wait as Frost clearly has work to do in the classroom first.
"I haven't taken the SAT yet but I'm going to be taking it in February," he said. "My coach has talked to me about maybe going to junior college in order to improve my grades."
So while he may not be an addition to the class of 2008, Frost will give NC State recruiting fans a name to watch over the next two years as he works his way towards D-1 eligibility.
SCOUTING REPORT: "At 6-5, 215 pounds, Frost is dominant at times on the high school level. He has impressive explosion with his hand on the ground and pursues to the ball extremely well. Frost does a good job of shedding blockers and causing chaos in the opposition's backfield.
"He does have a tendency to play high and is extremely raw as far as pass rushing skills but athletically and physically, has a tremendous amount of upside.
"As he develops as a pass rusher, Frost could become a major in-state prospect. At this point in his career, is somewhat reminiscent of current NC State defensive end Willie Young." -- Recruiting Analyst Steve Williams
COACH QUOTE: "Kamar is one of the best athletes and pass rushers that you will find around here. He's a very good player. We just now have to get his grades right because physically I think he is what college coaches look for." -- Jones Head Coach Greg Hampton
