LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Norcross (Ga.) four-star all-purpose back Alvin Kamara is narrowing down his list of options and working to make a decision in the near future.
"I have narrowed it down to a top (six) with Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma State, Florida State, and Oregon," Kamara said. "With that I am just trying to take a few more visits and get it narrowed down to maybe two or three so I can make a decision in September and focus on my season."
The 5-foot-10, 192-pound back has previously taken visits to a majority of his favorites. He is hoping to see all of the schools on his list prior to his decision.
"I haven't seen Oklahoma State and Oregon," Kamara said. "I have been everywhere else for a visit. I want to visit those two schools at some point."
One of his visits was surprising and a major reason why that school is amongst his favorites.
"One that I wasn't expecting to be as good of a visit as it was is Florida State," Kamara said. "I liked it more than I thought I would."
Two schools that have consistently been mentioned as favorites for Kamara's services are Alabama and Georgia. He talked about both of the schools.
"I like Alabama a lot, since day one they were the first school recruiting me and they have always been consistent with how they are recruiting me. I like them a lot relationship-wise," Kamara said. "It is a business. Anywhere that you go, you have to understand that it is a business. Coach (Nick) Saban isn't one of those coaches that will try to sugarcoat anything. You understand that right when you meet him.
"I went to Dawg Night (at Georgia) recently," Kamara added. "It was fun. All of the guys that are committed there, I know them. I felt at home there. I just had a great time there. I love that place."
Kamara again reiterated that he hopes to decide next month.
"Probably September, but I don't want to make any promises of a timeline, but that is when I would like to get it done," Kamara said.
He talked about how he will select his future home.
"Mainly with me it is a feeling," Kamara said. "Whatever I feel about a school, that will help me make my decision."
With regards to that 'feeling', Kamara senses that he may already have it.
"I think so," Kamara said. "I am just keeping it in my head for now."
Beyond taking a visit to Oklahoma State and Oregon, Kamara mentioned an interest in visiting Alabama and Georgia again before he makes his decision.
