"Southern Mississippi just offered," Camara told JCFootball.com.

The offer from the Golden Eagles is the third for the talented prospect, joining the two he already had from Akron and Illinois.

Camara has also set up unofficial visits to Penn State on July 19th and West Virginia on July 25th.

As a freshman, Camara played tight end for the Falcons, working his way into the multiple tight end sets, however, due to a shortage of talent on defense, he was asked to move to defensive end and he's taken to the position.

"We had good players all up and down (the roster at tight end), but it was fine," Camara told JCFootball.com during the spring. "They've moved me to defense now and I am really enjoying it. It's been a pretty natural move for me and my coaches think I can play a pretty big role this fall.

"I think schools are looking for more defensive ends and this could really give me a chance to wind up at a bigger school. I'm working on technique, getting stronger, my upper-body strength and learning the defense and my role this offseason."

Camara is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May of 2016 and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
