Outside linebacker Mohamed Camara is still strongly committed to South Carolina, but he’s going to look around, too. Camara has recently said that he plans on taking all of his visits this fall, surprising some folks around Columbia, S.C., many of whom thought he would only take one visit.
Camara, from West Forsyth High in Cumming, Ga., gave a solid verbal pledge to the Gamecocks last April, and he maintains that he is steadfast in his status. But he is planning on taking all of his official visits this fall, to South Carolina, Wake Forest and Florida State as of now. He will decide on the last two visits in the near future. He is also holding offers from East Carolina and Central Florida.
The 6’2’’ 190lb Camara is an intriguing prospect for Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks. Camara is adept at both blitzing and dropping into coverage, making him a perfect fit for the ‘SPUR’ position in South Carolina’s defense. He still has a little ways to go before he is ready to contribute, however. He will need some time in the weight room to add muscle to his already good frame because he absolutely needs to get stronger and faster in order to play in the SEC.
Make no mistake, though, Camara is a legit SEC prospect and has been getting a lot more interest from big name schools. Spurrier and company should be glad they jumped on him so early, because that’s one of the reasons he loves the Gamecocks so much. He is also attracted to the role he will have on that defense playing the ‘SPUR’- which is essentially a linebacker/safety hybrid.
Regardless of where he goes, Camara should make an impact on the field for his team–and I think it will be for South Carolina.
