DB David Kamara (5-11 185) of Loganville, GA has offers from Clemson, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. He has visited the Tigers twice in the last two weeks and has Clemson out front for his services. “I just love it up there,” he said. “I went back Monday because I really like it. It just feels like a family to me.” Kamara was thrilled with the offer and says he is close to committing. “Coach (Dabo) Swinney offered me and they’re telling me they want me to come there and be a part of them,” he said. “I’m going to visit LSU Friday and Mississippi State sometime after that. I’ll be done with visits after that and I’ll probably commit during our spring practice in May.” Other schools showing interest include Arkansas, Tennessee, Florida and Wisconsin. Kamara totaled 52 tackles, four interceptions and four forced fumbles as a junior. He did name Clemson as his leader.
LB/TE Matt Rolin (6-4 205) of Ashburn, VA received an offer from USC Tuesday increasing his total to 18. Some of his other offers include Florida State, Georgia, Maryland, Boston College, Michigan, NC State, Ohio State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Washington, Ole Miss, Colorado, Connecticut and Baylor. “Everyone is recruiting me as a linebacker but South Carolina just offered me at tight end,” Rolin said. “They are looking at me on both sides of the ball.” He has already visited USC and returns to the school March 31st. “It was a real good visit,” he said. “I’ve got family that live about 10 minutes from the campus so that makes it really easy for me.” Though he does not have any favorites and will not narrow his list until the summer he did say, “I will definitely take one of my official visits to South Carolina.” Rolin will visit Alabama April 2nd, Georgia on the 3rd and Florida State on the 4th. As a junior he had 100 tackles, 19 for loss, ten sacks, ten pass deflections and two interceptions. He does not have a leader.
QB Andrew Matyk (6-1 212) of Seminole, FL visited USC Thursday to attend a spring practice. It was his second visit to the Capital City. “I really like it up here,” Matyk said. “I think the coaches and players are really nice. Their facilities are as good as any school I’ve seen and they keep improving them.” Matyk’s other visit to Columbia was for The Citadel game in November. “They run the same offense we run at my high school,” he said. “They want to throw it but also take care of the ball. That’s pretty much what we do.” His other visits have been to Notre Dame, Dartmouth, South Florida, Ohio State, North Carolina, Duke, Bowling Green and Florida Atlantic. Each of these schools are showing interest but none have offered. “Coach (G.A.) Mangus is my recruiter and he told me I’m in the mix but he can’t make any promises,” Matyk said. “Ultimately, it’s his decision who gets to play quarterback at South Carolina.” Matyk does not have any favorites but is interested in the Gamecocks. He says USC and several Ivy league schools have shown the most interest in him. He has plans to visit Florida International, Florida Atlantic and Northwestern in the near future.
