DB David Kamara of Loganville, GA has finished his junior year and is ready to begin attending camps this summer. He starts this weekend as he heads to Alabama. “They told me they really wanted me to come down so they could see me in person,” Kamara said. “I’ve been there a bunch of times but I’m still looking forward to it.” Clemson, Wake Forest, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Illinois and Tulane have offered with interest coming from Alabama, LSU, Tennessee and Maryland. Kamara camps at LSU July 15th with Clemson and Tennessee as other possibilities. “LSU, Ole Miss and Clemson are my top schools right now,” he said. “I may look at Mississippi State because that’s where our quarterback went. I also like Tennessee. I’ve always liked them.” As for Clemson Kamara said, “They just keep telling me how they want to get me up there to play. I hear from them a lot.” He plans to visit this summer. Kamara did not name a leader.
QB Riley Ferguson (6-3 190) of Matthews, NC has offers that include USC, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, LSU, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Louisville and Maryland. He is also hearing from Clemson. Ferguson is close to naming a top five, as early as next week he says, and he has some reservations about the Gamecocks. “Coach (Shawn) Elliott came by and watched me throw during spring practice,” Ferguson said. “He told me to keep working and they want to get me back down there for a visit.” The commitment of QB Connor Mitch to USC has him unsure USC will make his list. “I don’t know if I want to go there if they’re already bringing in a good quarterback,” he admitted adding, “(Mitch) is a good quarterback.” Ferguson has visited Clemson several times and is high on the Tigers but does not believe Clemson plans to offer a quarterback in this class. “I talk to (Danny) Pearman and he tells me that they may not take a QB in this class,” said Ferguson. “He says you never know what could happen and that their needs could change. I’ve always liked Clemson so I don’t want to count them out.” He did not name a leader.
DB Kirk Garner of Olney, MD has an offer from USC but he does not have USC among his top six which he released Wednesday. Garner said in late April he was concerned about the probation USC had received from the NCAA and that had hurt the Gamecocks’ positioning with him. His current top six schools are Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, Virginia, Purdue and Penn State.
DE Jaylen Miller of Gaffney has picked up an offer from LSU. They join Wofford, North Carolina, NC State, Wake Forest, Florida, Duke and Alabama State. “I want to say Tennessee has offered but I’m not sure about that,” Miller said. He has not heard from USC or Clemson of late but did say he is willing to hear the two schools out should they reach out to him. “If they wanted to talk to me I would definitely keep an open mind about them,” he said. “I just want to remain humble during the (recruiting) process.” Miller begins attending camps this weekend as he heads to Wake Forest. On June 12 goes to Tennessee and on the 16th to Georgia. “I’ll probably go to two more after that but then I just want to take visits,” said Miller. He plans to visit Florida and LSU. “I’ve been trying to get down to Florida for a while and, if possible, I’ll go to LSU,” he said. “I want to see their campus and learn about them on my own.” Miller does not have any favorites.
7-1 Jordan Dickerson of Alexandria, VA made his official visit to Purdue Wednesday and Thursday. He did not commit. He will make a visit to USC this Sunday. Dickerson has also been considering Auburn but it’s not a certainty he will visit there.
