Kamara Considers Destination

The former Alabama running back, Alvin Kamara, is considering his potential transfer options, and UCLA is a real possibility...

Alvin Kamara , the former Alabama running back, could officially visit UCLA soon, according to sources.

Kamara was given his release from Alabama about a month ago, with the stipulation he could transfer to any program other than one in the SEC.

The 5-10, 200-pounder originally from Norcross (Georgia), Kamara was the #12-ranked running back in the national class of 2013 and signed with Alabama last February. With Alabama pretty stacked at running back, Kamara redshirted for the 2013 season, but because of the considerable depth in the Alabama backfield, recently opted to transfer and has left Alabama.

Clemson appears to be a major consideration for Kamara; we know that the tailback recently visited the Clemson campus and had previously met with the Clemson staff, and there is mutual interest. Florida State and Oklahoma are also thought to be possibilities.

Kamara, from what we've heard, has shown interest in UCLA, and the Bruins just recently started reciprocating that interest. The word is that he will visit UCLA soon, along with his sister, who used to live in Los Angeles.

An Under-Armour All-American out of high school, Kamara was the #47 player overall in the 2013 Scout.com 300, rushing for 2,264 yards and 26 touchdowns as a senior in high school. At the Atlanta Nike NFTC in 2012, Kamara was named the running backs MVP.

Per NCAA transfer rules, Kamara would have to sit out a year at the school of his choice. He would be eligible as a redshirt sophomore for the 2015 season.
