A majority of the recruits visiting Pitt’s junior day on Saturday don’t yet have a scholarship from Pitt.
One of the few players that does is three-star Akron, Ohio linebacker Bangally Kamara. Along with Pitt, Kamara has also been offered by Michigan, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Maryland, Iowa State, Purdue and Rutgers.
When he arrives in town Saturday, he’ll feel comfortable since he’s already made three other visits to Pitt including to their game against Georgia Tech.
“I’m going tomorrow because I just want to learn more about Pitt and they’re close to where I live,” said Kamara. “I want to see more of the campus, the facilities and meet some of the players.”
”I was offered by Coach Harley and they just said they look me as a linebacker a lot because of my size (6-foot-3, 200 pounds) and length. They believe if I’d commit to Pitt that I could turn into someone really special.”
Pitt started recruiting during his sophomore season and he attended one of Pitt’s football camps last summer.
Kamara tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that he believes his biggest strength in college will be his explosiveness and his first step off the snap.
“I believe my recruitment is going to come down to the feeling I get when I’m at a schools campus and how I feel when I’m there,” said Kamara. “Every school has a weight room, facilities, stadium. So for me, it’s going to come down to a feeling when I’m there and the energy. How I’d feel when I’m sleeping and living there everyday. How the coaches and people on campus support you.”
Because he’s been to Pitt a few times, there’s nothing in particular that Kamara feels like he needs to see. He pointed out that the coaches have done a good job educating him about the program and have answered any questions that he’s had.
Kamara appears to be a player that fans should keep an eye on for Pitt’s Class of 2020.
