UA Game Interview: Soso Jamabo

Jan. 1 -- Having visited UCLA and Notre Dame, the nation's #1 running back, Soso Jamabo, has plans to take more official visits in January...

Sotonye Jamabo, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound running back from Plano (Texas) West was a standout at two major events already this year -- The Opening and now the Under Armour All-America Game.

But he prefers to have the pads versus the camp setting.

"The Opening and this are definitely two different things," Jamabo explained.

"You definitely get to showcase your talent here (UA Game) against the best of the best, the best in the country with the pads on and prepare yourself for college and see how good you really are and if you are as good as you think you are."

After the game is over the Scout five-star will be turning his full attention to the recruiting process.

"I plan on taking two more officials between Texas, Texas A&M, Arizona State and Baylor. I will take two of those and after that I will make my commitment," Jamabo reports.

He will be trying to get both visits in as early as possible, ideally January 16th and 23rd weekends so he can have time to concentrate or decide what he will do.

There is also a chance he could decide around that time

"I want to get them out early so I can have some time to think about it," Jamabo said.

"Depending on when I am done with my officials. If I am ready to commit after my officials are done I will probably commit then and there. If I feel it in my heart I will do it then, but if it needs to be taken all the way to signing day it will."

So what is Jamabo looking for in a college?

"Probably where I got the best opportunity to now only better myself as a football player, but as a man. Where I feel more family oriented and academically probably the most stable school."

"It is where I will feel the most comfortable and where I feel I can be the most successful."

Jamabo has already previously visited UCLA and Notre Dame and he confirmed both of those schools are still firmly in the picture and part of his decision making process.
