Every year schools flock to the talent-rich Virginia Beach (Va.) area known as the 757. It seems like an impact player emerges from the area every year. In the 2014 class, it could be Jamil Kamara. The wide receiver from Virginia Beach (Va.) Catholic has over 15 offers and a few have already caught his eye.
"North Carolina, Clemson, Virginia, Miami and Boston College all stick out," said the 6-foot-2, 196-pound Kamara. "Those are the schools that stick out to me that I have offers from.
"Virginia has been looking at me since I was a freshman and there are a lot of players from the 757 going there. I'm also really close with the coaches," said the four-star junior. "North Carolina has that fast paced offense I like and Clemson has a really nice campus. I met all the coaches when I was there over the summer.

"Boston College said I'd get the chance to play really early and that's a really big factor to me," Kamara said. "Miami, I'd like to go to the NFL so that's what I like about them. The sanctions stink a little bit but hopefully by the time I'd get there it will be all settled."
With all the offers Kamara has, more schools are bound to follow suit.
"I'm talking to Georgia Tech, Alabama, Georgia a little bit and Michigan is coming after me really hard.
"I like Michigan. They came in the school a little while ago and they just are waiting to me back to me, because they've been really busy, so I can see if I have an offer," he explained. "They also wanted to see my highlights. I know they have a really good quarterback going there next year and I know they need receivers really bad. They might be the next school to offer."
The school that lands Kamara will be getting a confident, playmaking receiver with high aspirations.
"I'm going to go wherever I feel right, if I can play early, I have a good chance to go to the NFL and get a good education," said Kamara. "I want to go visit North Carolina and Virginia and, if I get that offer from Michigan, I'll definitely visit there."
Kamara finished his season with 42 catches for 818 yards and scored 12 touchdowns.
