Visit Set for Kamara

Virginia Beach (VA) Bishop Sullivan Catholic wide receiver Jamil Kamara has narrowed it down to a top five – or so he thinks. Looking to take all five official visits this season to further narrow down his list, the only trip marked down on Kamara's calendar is Wisconsin.

Virginia Beach (VA) Bishop Sullivan Catholic wide receiver Jamil Kamara went from over 25 offers to a "final five" of Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wisconsin. Kamara also has Old Dominion and Miami on his radar.

Now the senior wide out is currently reserving any free space on his calendar to plan out his official visits. Kamara plans on getting his list down to a top three at the end of his season so his final visits are crucial.

The 6-2, 205-pound Kamara is looking to visit Michigan State, Pitt and Virginia. He's also considering either making a trip to Miami or Old Dominion, but has yet to decide between the two. Kamara does have one visit set in stone – Wisconsin on October 12.

"It's when UW plays Northwestern," Kamara told Badger Nation. "It's one of their bigger games so I figured it would be a good time to go. The coaches said it would be a good game to come for and that it would be pretty packed. I'm expecting a great atmosphere and to have a good time. I can't wait."

Kamara – currently a four-star athlete ranked as the No. 20 wide receiver in the country by Fox Sports Next – is not only grabbing the attention of coaches but also other recruits. In fact, it's been the players who have been eager to find out when Kamara will be making the trip to Madison.

"A couple recruits have been hitting me up on Twitter and Facebook and saying they want to go visit with me," Kamara said. "They keep asking me if I'm going to make it or not just so they can be sure. I don't know any of them personally."

While Kamara is not sure who the recruits are just yet and is eager to meet them, the senior wide out is most eager about is moving up to the college level and getting the opportunity to contribute early.

Kamara's top five include Pittsburgh and Wisconsin because both schools offer the chance to play as a true freshman. The Badgers' top receiver, senior Jared Abbrederis, and one of Pittsburgh's main targets, senior Devin Street, will be leaving after this season, giving Kamara a chance to step in and compete right away at either school.

"Wisconsin said I could come in and possibly start as a freshman, and Pitt said the same thing that I could come in and play early just like Tyler Boyd did as a freshman this year," said Kamara. "That's the biggest factor for me, to play early so that's why Pitt and Wisconsin are still in my top five."
