"Everything is going good," he said. "I just acme back from Maryland.
I've also been to Connecticut, Temple, Rutgers and James Madison."

Maryland left a favorable impression on Camara.
"Maryland was nice," he said. "I got a really nice tour and it was my second time up there. I'm pretty familiar with it. They liked me. They are still trying to figure out the numbers and after they figure them out they'll get back to me. They are waiting on a prospect to make a decision in the next two weeks. They are also trying to figure out what position I can play. I played nose tackle on my visit there."
Regarding Connecticut, Temple and Rutgers, he gave his take.
"Connecticut went well and I have been there three times. I'm familiar with the campus and coaching staff," he said. "Temple was nice and my cousin played there. Rutgers I've been to twice and it was a real family atmosphere. They are all in the same boat as Maryland. Once they figure out my position they'll get back to me about an offer. I'm just getting recruited as an athlete."
At this time Camara holds offers from Purdue, Buffalo, James Madison and Stony Brook.
As he plans to take a couple of visits, currently one school seems to be standing out above the rest.
"I'll probably go to Buffalo and Purdue before the end of the summer,"
he said. "I'd say I really like Purdue right now. I just have to get out there and visit with my mom to see how it is."
Camara explained why the Boilermakers are at the top of his list.
"It's the coaching staff," he said. "They play in the Big Ten and their academics are good. That's about it right now."
Camara is also trying to figure out the best time to make his final decision.
"I was trying to make a decision before school, but my coach has told me to wait cause I'll probably get offers after the first couple games," he said.
