Kamara is keeping a close eye on ND

Wide receiver Duval Kamara of Hoboken high school (N.J.) would like to see Notre Dame dominate the Purdue Boilermakers (4-0) this weekend after struggling in the last two contests.

Scout.com's No. 13-rated wide receiver, Duval Kamara, (6-foot-3, 205 pounds) enjoyed his trip to South Bend for the Penn State game, but like most Notre Dame fans he was anxious watching the Michigan State game.

"I was at the Penn State game. That was a real good game," Kamara said of Notre Dame's 41-17 win over the Nittany Loins. "It wasn't my official visit, I'll take that the week of the banquet.

"The Michigan State game was a great game. I watched the first quarter. The second quarter I kind of flipped through channels. After halftime I watched the rest of the game. I was a little frustrated which is why I had to flip through the channels after the first quarter. I'm a little surprised, I didn't expect the offense to be playing the way they are playing.

"We needed to bounce back," he said "I think it was great for the program. I think we'll be okay with Purdue."

Hoboken is off to a 2-0 start to their season. After an easy victory in their opener, Kamara and his teammates were in a close game with Hudson Catholic high school (Jersey City, N.J.) before pulling away for a 34-14 victory.

"The last game was a dogfight and we didn't put them away until the fourth quarter," Kamara explained. "Our first game I got pulled in the first half and after that I don't play anymore. The last game I played most of the game, but we didn't throw the ball so I really didn't get the chance to score.

"I really don't know my stats, but I have a lot of catches. Last game we threw the ball about seven times in the first half. I talked to my coach and he joked that he was turning our [wing-T] offense into the spread offense because we threw the ball so much that game.

"I don't know how many tackles I have, but I know that I have one pick. I'm just getting warmed up right now," he added.

Hoboken hosts Snyder high school (Jersey City, N.J.) on Friday night at 7:00 EST.
