AJC's Mr. Georgia Football ranks UGA visit as '9'

Alvin Kamara, the AJC’s All-Classification Player of the Year, took an official visit to UGA this weekend and rated it as a “9” on a scale of 1-10. 

“I just enjoyed it,” he said.

That’s a higher score than the running back from Norcross High School gave to his co-leader, Alabama, where he visited last weekend and rated an "8."

However, don’t read too much into the trip ratings because Kamara said both Alabama and Georgia are tied.

“I think things are pretty even,” Kamara said. “I’m just going to use these last few days heading into signing day to put things in my head, and then make a decision from there.”

At some point this week, Kamara will welcome UGA coach Mark Richt for an in-home visit. “They are working with my mom to pin down a day,” he said. Alabama’s Nick Saban has already used up his in-home meeting.

Kamara was one of four UGA targets that took official visits over the weekend, along with DT Montravius Adams, LB Reuben Foster and DE Davin Bellamy.

Kamara said the biggest thing that stuck out from talking with Richt over the weekend was that the coach said he could be a “difference maker” for the Bulldogs.

“(Richt) said I could bring back that element that Knowshon Moreno provided for them – an every-down back, pass catcher, Wildcat guy, a big threat to defenses,” Kamara said.

There was one interesting development with UGA on Sunday night. According to multiple reports, the Bulldogs offered Vanderbilt RB commit Johnathan Ford of New Hope, Ala. – which immediately caused a Twitter meltdown with speculation that UGA doesn’t feel so hot about its chances with Kamara vs. Alabama.

When Kamara was asked if the last-minute offer to Ford would affect how he felt about UGA, he replied, “No comment.”

Kamara is “finished” with official visits, and will not go anywhere next weekend. He was considering trips to Tennessee, Florida State or Clemson.

Kamara will announce between Alabama and UGA on signing day.
