SOR: Talk a bit about the adjustment in moving from South Florida and coming to Rutgers.
Jamiel: I am getting used to it. This is a great place to be at. I love it here.
I have only been here a short while, but I feel like I am maturing as a person.
The adjustment is going well.
SOR: Coming in from Dade County, has that made the transition any easier.
Jamiel: It helps. But I am also tight with the kids from Jersey. I like being
around good people and we have a great group up here. Whether it be Florida or
Jersey, as long as I am around people that I am comfortable with, I feel good.
SOR: How do you feel about your play thus far in camp?
Jamiel: I feel good. I have come in hungry. I am learning every day. And when
ever I get an opportunity to get in there, I try to show them what I can do.
SOR: You come from the same high school as Eric Foster. Talk about your relationship
Jamiel: He has been a great help. I want to become like him. He is a role model.
Ill follow him around. We will be going over the play book, and if I am
ever stuck, he will put down his stuff and go over it with me. He teaches me a
lot. And when he is going over his stuff, Ill try to learn what he is learning.
He is a great person to be around and I try to absorb from him as much as I can.

feeling sore in places I have never felt sore before. (Jamiel is currently 245

Jamiel: I want to play. I want to help this team win. But if it is my time to
just sit back and learn from the older guys and gain experience, Ill do
SOR: Talk about your experiences with Coach Godette as a DL coach
Jamiel: He is great. He is very demanding and wants us to be the best we can be.
But he also knows we are freshman. He teaches us with a good balance.
