Ever since Alvin Kamara was granted his release from his scholarship at the University of Alabama, there has been a lot of speculation as to where he might land. One of the front runners all along in the process has been the Tigers, and the former Tide RB made a visit to Clemson, according to multiple reports.
The Georgia native was pursued by Dabo Swinney and his staff last year as a 4 star recruit, but Kamara ultimately decided on the Crimson Tide. Now, Kamara is seeking to transfer and his recent visit bodes well for the Tigers.
Kamara’s top choices coming out of high school included a handful of SEC teams, along with Clemson. However, Alabama is not permitting the running back to transfer to another SEC school, so the Tigers became an immediate front runner.
While other schools are still in the mix, most notably UCLA, Clemson appears to be the team to beat to land the prized transfer. Should Kamara choose the Tigers he would have to sit out the 2014 season, per NCAA rules, and would be eligible to return for the 2015 campaign.
Kamara would be a great addition to the Clemson backfield which is losing starting RB Roderick McDowell from last year’s team.
