UGA Football recruiting: Alvin Kamara still deciding between Georgia and Alabama

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia is hoping to land Alvin Kamara, a four-star running back recruit from Norcross (Ga.) High School.

Running back recruit Alvin Kamara says that he is still deciding where he will play football next year. The Norcross (Ga.) High School senior is considering Georgia and Alabama. He also insists that Oregon is still in the running.

The 195-pound, 5'10 back impressed Alabama's Kirby Smart, UGA's Mike Bobo, and other assistant coaches who were in attendance at the Georgia state semifinals last Friday. Kamara's coach at Norcross, Keith Maloof, offered this praise:

"He can just do so many things. He can catch the ball out of the backfield and had a 65-yard scoring reception (in the semifinals). He threw a touchdown pass (in the quarterfinals) ... The kid can do just about anything you ask him to do."

At Georgia, Kamara would join a solid, young group of backs. This year, the Bulldog rushing attack was led by freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. Georgia averaged 184.2 rushing yards per game, which was fourth-best in the SEC.

On Saturday, fans can get a sneak preview of Alvin Kamara in the Georgia Class AAAAAA state championship. Kamara and Norcross will take on Lovejoy High School and Travis Custis. Custis is considered to be the other top running back in Georgia. Although he committed to Georgia Tech, some suspect that Alabama may still attempt to persuade Custis to join the Crimson Tide.
