Former four-star wide receiver and rising sophomore Jamil Kamara will not return to the University of Virginia next season, per a report from Jamie Oakes of 247 Sports. Addressing the matter, Kamara was blunt.
“I will not return to UVa in the fall,” said the former 247Sports Composite four-star. “I’m looking for better opportunities.”
It’s hard not to agree with the decision of the young man from Virginia Beach. He only appeared in five games last season, catching one pass for six yards. Virginia stumbled to a record of 5-7 (3-5 ACC) and is now 23-38 (11-29 ACC) in five years under head coach Mike London. Thus, with quarterback Greyson Lambert also on the way out, it’s easy to see why Kamara would want to transfer to a different program.
Just where Kamara ends up remains to be seen. As a recruit, he received offers from a myriad number of schools that included Wisconsin, Michigan State, Clemson and Pitt, among others. No matter where he ends up, he’ll need to sit out a season, per NCAA transfer rules.
Given his talent, don’t be surprised if Kamara finds his new team sooner rather than later. Of course, Campus Sports will update his transfer process as more information becomes available.
