Bishop Sullivan (Virginia Beach, VA) rising senior wide receiver Jamil Kamara recently revealed his nine finalists: LSU (no offer), Miami, North Carolina, N.C. State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The 6’2″, 200-pound prospect has added a 10th school — the University of Pittsburgh — to his finalist list.

Pitt is the most recent major FBS program to extend an offer to Kamara, who now boasts over 20 scholarship offers in total. What boosted the Panthers’ into serious contention?

“I had a nice conversation with the wide receivers coach when he visited the school,” Kamara answered. “He seems like a real cool dude. He was telling me about the program. I’m interested in seeing the campus and the facilities.”

In addition to Pitt, Connecticut, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin have been represented at Bishop Sullivan during the Spring Evaluation Period. UVa has not been represented as of yet, but Kamara expects to see a Cavalier coach or two at his school in the coming weeks. Virginia continues to be in strong position here, although Kamara does not plan on committing any time soon.

“I’m open right now. [Virginia is] definitely very high on my list, but I’m open,” said Kamara, who wants to take all five official visits and is considering announcing his college choice at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl next January.

Discussing why he has been and continues to be impressed by the Hoos, Kamara said: “Coach London is a great coach. I really believe I’d be set there. They treat me real good. They are very honest with me, and it’s definitely the home school.”

Kamara has visited Charlottesville numerous times before. He plans to make a return trip this summer. Trips to Miami, Pitt, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia are in the works as well.

“I definitely want to visit these schools.
