I'm sure you've seen the story of the football recruit Alvin Kamara, who received 105 letters from the Alabama Crimson Tide to come play for them. I skimmed it initially and didn't realize that there's a Syracuse Orange connection.
Kamara, who rushed for 1,500-plus yards in 2011, is a solid all-around back known for his exceptional speed. He received his first offer last fall from Syracuse.
Quick off the draw, Cuse. Nice! Of course, our plan to just hope that no one else notices a four-star talent in the heart of SEC country might not have been a sound one. Alabama and Syracuse are two of the nine schools that have offered to the RB.
While it might be a foregone conclusion to think the Orange are out of the race, I'd like to remind you that Tyrone Wheatley is involved. And don't you dare ever give up on Tyrone Wheatley.
"Right now, I don't have any leaders, but I'll say a few schools stand out a little bit," Kamara said. "Alabama, Georgia and Syracuse. Recruiting wise, they stay in touch with me the most.
"Coach [Bryan] McClendon at Georgia stays in touch with me; Coach [Tyrone] Wheatley at Syracuse keeps in touch with me."
Tyrone, you know what to do now. 105 letters? Forget that....105 DAILY VISITS!
