Semper Fi: CB David Kamara

David Kamara

FULLERTON, Calif. -- Cornerback David Kamara has two official visits set and is looking at three schools, and during practice for today's Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl he spoke with FOXSportsNEXT about his recruitment.

David Kamara's heard it time and again when it comes to recruiting.

How much is he tied to the decision of fellow Grayson High (Loganville, Ga.) standout Robert Nkemdiche, the top player in the nation?

"It doesn't bother me because I know wherever I go, I'm going to ball," the cornerback said. "I know when they put on the film, they see what I can do."

At this point, the two schools who like what they see the most are LSU and Ole Miss. Clemson is also involved in Kamara's recruitment.

"I'm talking to LSU a lot and Ole Miss," the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Kamara said. "I'm still talking to Clemson. Those are my main three."

Kamara set up an official visit for LSU on Jan. 11, and he will trip to Ole Miss the weekend of Jan. 25. A date for the Clemson visit is yet to be determined, but Jan. 18 and Feb. 1 are the two most likely options.

"I'm probably going to make (my decision) in January," Kamara said. "I want a place I can play, where I feel it's best for me. That's about it."

The vibe Kamara is getting from the Ole Miss staff, especially coach Hugh Freeze, is very strong.

"I like coach Freeze and how the coaching staff is out there trying to make a winning program," Kamara said. "They changed the culture this year. Denzel (Nkemdiche) is out there, that's one of my brothers, and that's real good."

LSU is another program that is intriguing to Kamara.

"I went up there for a spring practice and they always have good defensive backs," Kamara said. "It's DB U. (Assistant) coach (Corey) Raymond, I talk to him and (defensive line) coach Brick Haley …those are real cool guys, and the tradition at LSU is really good.

"Right now I'm getting to know coach Haley, and he said I can fit in really well in their system." Clemson's recruitment of Kamara has sagged a bit lately, but Kamara believes that will be rekindled now that the season is over.

"I haven't talked to them in a little bit but I really liked the atmosphere with coach (Dabo) Swinney and how treats his players," Kamara said. "I just have to get to know the new defensive backs coach they just got because my recruiting coach (Charlie Harbison) just left and went to Auburn."
