Georgia Football Recruiting: Alvin Kamara says competition is not a problem

The recruit out of Norcross, Ga., is set to visit the Bulldogs.

Four-star running back Alvin Kamara said he will be visiting Georgia, even with freshmen running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall already in place, writes Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald:

He doesn't seem phased by Georgia having the freshmen duo of Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall and Alabama having freshman T.J. Yeldon.

"Competition is no problem with me," he said.

Kamara, out of Norcross, Ga., will also be visiting Alabama, and "wherever else I can get to or interested in getting to then that's where I'll go."

It would be tough for Kamara to shine if he went to Georgia with Gurley and Marshall on board. Gurley rushed for 1,260 yards and 16 touchdowns this season on 199 carries. Marshall was also strong, rushing for 723 yards and eight touchdowns on 109 carries.

Kamara, who checks in at 5'10" and 190 pounds, is considered by ESPN to be the fifth-best prospect coming out in Georgia. The Bulldogs have already earned the commitment of the No. 4 prospect in Georgia, cornerback Shaq Wiggins.

Kamara is also listed as the No. 4 running back prospect in the country. He's the highest-rated running back who has yet to commit.
