2013 UGA Football Recruiting: Georgia, Alabama Favorites For Alvin Kamara

The recruiting battle for the top class of 2013 running back in the state of Georgia this year is far from over, as Alvin Kamara of Norcross High School is still deciding between six schools -- Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma State, Florida State, Tennessee and Oregon.

However, in a conversation with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Kamara indicated that the Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide are in the lead:

Why does Kamara like Alabama? "They produce high-quality players – all those guys that went in the NFL Draft last year, and you saw the game against Michigan. They put a high-quality product on the field, and that’s what I like about Alabama."

What about UGA? "There’s opportunity at Georgia. And it’s the same way as Alabama, they put a good product on the field. They’re good people in Athens. Coach [Mark Richt] is a good guy. I get along with the coaches, and they produce."

The 5'10, 190-pound running back is a four-star recruit ranked as high as No. 3 in the nation at his position.

For Georgia, reeling in Kamara is even more important, as the school still does not have a running back in the class of 2013 after Alabama picked up a commitment from Tyren Jones of Walton, who is neck-in-neck with Kamara in the recruiting rankings.
