I'm a coach in Gwinnett County and I'm breaking Kamara down on film right now. He's all he's cracked up to be. Contrary to maybe some other's opinions on here, he is an elite RB.
I will say that his burst is as good as Tyren Jones, Henry's or Tenpenny's, but he probably does not explode in and out of cuts the way Jones does. I haven't seen Tenpenny or Henry, so it's harder to compare him to them other than to say that he's obviously smaller than Henry.
In terms of vision, I would say his is as good as anyone's. Looking at his game vs a pretty good Mill Creek defense, his 1st two TDs are on cutbacks for long runs.
Now, personally - for those who say we don't need him bc we have TJ, Tenpenny & Henry, I would back way away from that. At 5-10, 195, this kid can turn around and play on the other side of the ball or line up and do the things that Cyrus Jones is doing. That's who I would compare him to.
He's got 555 yards and 7 TDs through 5 games in Gwinnett County - tougher football than what TJ sees in Cobb - and he had a bum ankle to start the season. He put over 200 on Colquitt County in the scrimmage - in a half.
I would still rank TJ ahead of Kamara bc I think he's a pure RB, but Kamara is still an absolute take IMO.
That said ... I hope he gets the flu next week. ;-)

You get out of it what you put into it!
I couldn't agree w/ ^^^, more. Kamara is an absolute take, if he's available and we have the spot.
Appreciate the info 92DT, hope we get him.
Which school if you don't mind me asking. I went to Brookwood and Coach Crews was my 10th Grade English Teacher and Wrestling Coach.
Haha on the flu. Don't blame you. Thanks for the post. Good luck.

I have to wonder if d Johnsons spot as an athlete recruit could be taken by Kamara now that we are backing off Johnson.
Ummm... You said the same things basically lol.
Johnson wasn't taking up a spot. He was going to JUCO.
