Isn't he one of the guys with kimshitshe?


No

That was the D.B. with the last name Kamara. A 3* prospect. This is the 4* R.B. that was never committed to Clemson at any point, but had us pretty high up on his list. We took Dye over him.

He should transfer to Clemson

Because he is a good player.

Depends on WHY he was suspended. Don't need any trouble makers. We have done great without the misfits.n Need more info on this kid,


well it wasn't smokin' weed and settin' off the fire alarm


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 6:26 AM
 

at the team hotel.....I bet Dabo was embarrassed, that's probably why it was the last straw.


We were not in his final list.***

FUNNY WE LOST RECRUITMENT BATTLE NOW.......

HE COULD STILL END UP HERE. IRONIC.


Its called regret***

Welcome arms?

Not sure how I feel about this type of transfer. I suppose I'm feeling faithful to the 8 running backs we have that made Clemson their first choice. Would have no problem with a jr. college transfer.

2 of the 3 Rbs in this year's recruiting class, MAY NOT

take that for what its worth.

Bama is the 1st choice for a lot of players


Posted: Jan 20, 2014 12:08 PM
 

The others may have went to Bama if they had offers. I can't blame anybody for going to Bama if offered.


Q


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:00 PM
 

Could he play immediately?


I would imagine he would have to sit out 1 year***


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 11:10 AM
 




But......


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:05 PM
 

I wouldn't like him going to Fla State! :)


No thanks. You had your chance.


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:07 PM
 

We are good. Dye, Gallman, Howard, Davidson, Brooks, incoming recruits....


Telling an Ala xfer no thanks- THANK you DABO!

We's gots it good for sure. Good times


No thanks, on your opinion.

Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:10 PM
 

Good kid, we're better off with him than with out.

We'll be good either way though.

There's no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people who ask questions.


He brings a different dimension than anyone on the roster

[3]
Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:13 PM
 

He is more of a Mike Bellamy type speed back. We don't really have one of those on the roster other than maybe Davidson. He would come in as the fastest back on the roster.


Bottom line: Every position will be rightfully earned


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:18 PM
 

and am absolutely sure every player on the roster knows he's got to earn it- Kelley, Stoudt, Watson- everybody

Any player not understanding that is either not thinking it through or is selfish


I'd defer to the opinion of the coaching staff.

Their opinion matters to me more than yours x 2000.

I just hope Dabo checks in here to see what we're thinking

Posted: Jan 17, 2014 9:41 PM
 

are all lined up and they play everybody up? I think we are ready to do that to them. Lay out some name tags, maybe Dabo doing the card shuffle with a big sneer, fake a pick only to pick one of the others. We're that good I'm tellin ya


Re: You know the kids hype up signing day with their school caps

We are "that good" at RB? Howard has shown next to zero in his time here. Brooks, rail-thin at 185, has been and will remain a non-factor at RB. That leaves basically Dye, GAllman, and Choice. Let's hope that a least one of them comes through big-time, or we have major problems at RB.


You know he checks here before ever getting his assistants

opinion on recruits.


Banking a lot on Dye having full recovery?

[1]
Posted: Jan 17, 2014 8:14 PM
 

Gallman would be the only power back if Dye never fully recovers from his back surgery this season. If I were the coaches I would consider Kamara just as insurance until Choice or others get up to speed. I say "consider" because they have to judge beyond his talent. Could he be a head case?


No thanks. You had your chance. Agree - we don't want ya***


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 8:24 PM
 




Alot of potential, but...


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 11:15 AM
 

with Dye, who knows how long it will take him to get back to 100%

Howard has yet to prove anything.
Brooks lacks BIG PLAY ability.
Who knows what to expect with Gallman.
Davidson is injury prone.

So sure, a lot of potential...but that's it.
So give Kamara a shot.

Re: Alot of potential, but...

I agree. I just don't we are in a position to be ultra choosy at RB.


Yes he could play immediately... won some sort of award at one of the

Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:13 PM
 

All star practices/games/camps... I think for versatility and footwork/speed. This guy is well within d alvin cook's top tier as far as RBs are concerned.

He saw what Bama's freshman back did in the latter part of the year and knows he can be a starter or major contributor at most any school not named Alabama, right away. Hence, the desire to transfer.


You transfer, you sit out a year unless you get a hardship


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 10:48 PM
 

waiver to return close to home because of family sickness etc.


Or if you major in a course not offered at original school***

Weren't we in the mix for him........


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:17 PM
 

right until the end? I remember him going to Dabo's Bbq.

Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:35 PM
 

he was VERY seriously considering CU right up to NSD to the extent that the staff thought we were in good shape after the bbq. Of course, they also thought they had Gurley and Marshall!


I mean come on can we afford a BAMA player?


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 7:47 PM
 

They get paid pretty good down there at BAMA.


Dabo should take 'em - - nice video highlights and he can

Couldn't help it,HA HA HA





He'd have to sit a year ? But I see this as a take all day long.


Re: Never Fear, TCI is on the case.


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 8:16 PM
 

Lmao at MacRae saying he's trying to get Kamara on the phone. What a clown. Completely botched the Morris to Vandy deal. Idiot should have his credentials revoked.


We could use him, it would be a big pickup.***

Didn't this young man turn down Clemson last year?!?!!!!

Well, well..we're looking better all the time!

To All CLEMSON TiGERS..Sending you Bright Light from the Carolina Coast and hoping you get to witness a huge Orange sunset tonight. Go Tigers!

Would he have to sit out a year ?


Re: Didn't this young man turn down Clemson last year?!?!!!!

yes


Re: Didn't this young man turn down Clemson last year?!?!!!!


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 5:41 PM
 

Kamara did not actually have a chance to turn down Clemson last year.

Dye just happened to pull the trigger first last year while at the BBQ I think. At that point Clemson was done at RB for that year.

Kamara was very interested though. I think he was friends with Jenkins kid who went to TN.


We would be stupid not to consider it.***

Time to set the record straight!

[4]
Posted: Jan 17, 2014 9:39 PM
 

Ok for starters yes he would have to sit out a year and that would pretty much make him a 2015 recruit and would come in to fill the hole that DJ Howard would leave.

Next did this kid ever really turn Clemson down? We told him, Derek Green, and Dye that we were only taking 2 RB's in 2013 and they already had one so the first one to commit is the guy we are taking. So we ended up with Dye because of that. This young man was very interested in Clemson during the time we were recruiting him but we filled up and that was that. He never turned Clemson down publicly he just chose to wait on his recruitment and we filled up.

When I was evaluating all the RB prospect last year I personally wanted #1 Derek Green #2 Alvin Kamara and then #3 Dye...

Let me just say something maybe people are not thinking about. This kid was in the ALABAMA PROGRAM. This kid had a whole year to train and get stronger and bigger with the super power of the SEC. I think we would be stupid to pass on this guy because he is essentially going to be a guy we really wanted in 2013 and we would get him in 2015 after training and getting bigger at another school.

I say we open our arms wide and give him a chance (he clearly had character and Alabama lacked it)


Thank You for being the voice of reason JBBall.. I agree

Posted: Jan 17, 2014 9:46 PM
 

Would love to give this kid a chance at Clemson. There are a lot of external factors that come into play when these kids attend their choice university. Whatever is going on with this young man is unknown at this point but it is quite possible he might see something or have been asked to take part in something outside of his ethical framework. Before any of us know the story it is so wrong to just go ahead and judge this young man.


Re: Thank You for being the voice of reason JBBall.. I agree


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 10:50 AM
 

Sounds like somebody's believing the E"SEC"PN hype about the SEC.............superpower......really?


Bama deserves all the credit...that's the problem is that


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 11:12 AM
 

every other team gets just as much props for getting a sniff at Bama's jockstraps in the SEC. When you win that many NCs, then yes, you can be considered a 'super power' of some sorts.


Re: Bama deserves all the credit...that's the problem is that


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 12:03 PM
 

Apparently somebody found the Kryptonite....what did they fall to this year? Bama wasn't playing as strong this year as they have in the past.I don't hold them up as a "superpower" in college football like some (E"SEC"PN) do and I don't swallow their hype.


Re: Bama deserves all the credit...that's the problem is that


Posted: Jan 19, 2014 1:42 PM
 

If we had Bama's record in winning NC's, I suspect you'd consider us a "superpower." It seems only fair to give credit where it is due. And, consider Nick Saban's public demeanor compared to Spurrier's. I'll take Nick and Bama any day of the week. And I'd da#n sure take Kamara.


Re: Time to set the record straight!


Posted: Jan 19, 2014 1:33 PM
 

I agree. Thoughtful post. Although I'm not sure what kind of "hole" Howard is going to leave other than a scholarship that, frankly, I wish were available now.


That's it, Everyone's bailing

Posted: Jan 17, 2014 9:39 PM
 

SEC is no longer the year in and year out dominant conference. Everyone is saying head over to the ACC, the last BCS Champion conference. Isn't that what we're supposed to do, brag about how great and wonderful we are bc FSU won the championship ;)


Re: That's it, Everyone's bailing


Posted: Jan 19, 2014 1:45 PM
 

Maybe. Problem is, it reminds me of how FSU humiliated us in our own house in the ACC "game of the century."


Also would this help with L. Carter?

Re: Football Recruiting Update: Alabama RB may transfer to Clemson, FSU or UCLA


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 9:50 PM
 

If he did choose us, we really would have a stable of young RB's then. Dye, Gallman and Choice will already be in place for significant playing time in the near future, throw in Jae'lon Oglesby too. Going to be a full stable of pure talent.


We couldn't say yes fast enough


Posted: Jan 17, 2014 10:59 PM
 

Mr. Kamara, come on down...


If he comes...


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 1:23 AM
 

If he comes here I see CJ fuller being a DB (like most of us believe along with the coaches), Jaelon Oglesby becoming a slot wide receiver, Howard leaving, and then Kurt Fleming becoming an H-back or a LB, which leaves Dye, Gallman, Choice, brooks, davidson, and Kamara at RB, after Howard leaves. I think brooks would be better at WR personally, he fumbles a lot and isn't very thick. All of the other guys are powerful. Choice is a bowling ball along with Dye. I'll take this guy any day of the week though. Plus just like other points made he would basically take the load of recruiting a 2015 RB off of our coaches shoulders so they can focus on other big names (Hyatt, Campbell).


Re: If he comes...


Posted: Jan 19, 2014 1:52 PM
 

Excellent post. Finally a realistic assessment of Howard and Brooks as RBs. I hope we are going whole hog after Kamara.


He must be wanting to attend one of those SEC type schools!


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 8:38 AM
 

Lol...surprised ESecPN hasn't spun it that way yet since FSU already is apparently & we on our way & close to being one! Lol


You're crazy to not want him


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 8:53 AM
 

Get off the "he turned us down" whining, the same people that cry about us not running the ball enough are the same ones saying "we don't want you" can never have too many good backs.


Rivals had him as the #2 RB in the country


Posted: Jan 18, 2014 9:06 AM
 

In 2013. #43 overall


If Bama....

We should welcome this guy. Look at that highlight reel! And that is with a terrible offensive line....there are people in the backfield on nearly every play! Great moves....he could be another Ellington!


We need a home run threat from
