Seymour Talks Visit, Ready for Big Man

Brooklyn (N.Y.) Grand Street Campus defensive lineman Kamaal Seymour returned to Rutgers Thursday for another unofficial visit. A spring commitment to head coach Kyle Flood, Seymour discussed the first visit for his parents to campus, and the start of the camp season.

Kamaal Seymour will be back at Rutgers for the Big Man Academy this weekend, but marked his Thursday visit as significant because of the chance to bring his family.

The defensive tackle committed to Rutgers after a spring visit with Brooklyn (N.Y.) Grand Street Campus, and was happy to be back for a June afternoon.

"It was great actually," Seymour said. "I got to see the whole campus this time around. I got to see their dorms, the work rooms. I saw the weight room again. I saw the classrooms. I really enjoyed seeing more of it."

Seymour to campus with his parents, and the focus was on touring the campus and seeing academic opportunities.

"It was really important," he said. "That's where I'm going to be the next four years, basically. Their education is one of the reasons I picked Rutgers, so it was important for us to learn more about it.

"I got to spend about an hour and a half with the coaches. I talked with [defensive line coach Jim] Panagos for 45 minutes or so with my family. We love him. I spoke with coach [Kyle] Flood also. … The coaching staff is very welcoming."

Seymour will be back Saturday for the first of two 2014 Big Man Academy events.

"I'm very excited for it," he said. "I'm going to work with the coaches and see what college football coaches are like. I really think I can learn a lot."

The 6-foot-5 Seymour is undecided on other camps after picking up interest from other schools after his commitment.

"I'm just focused on Saturday right now," Seymour said. "I don't know about other camps. I'm not sure yet. I'm going to get through Saturday first."
