Which College Will Kamara Commit to on Signing Day?

Norcross High's running back Alvin Kamara won't announce his decision until just before he signs Wednesday. Robert Nkemdiche of Grayson High will do the same.

More than 20 Gwinnett County high-schoolers are expected to sign football scholarships with major programs on National Signing Day, Feb. 6.

Based on commitments listed as of 2 p.m. Monday on Rivals.com, that’s a given fact.

But the biggest question of the recruiting season — especially with SEC football fans — still needs to be answered.

Who’s gonna land Nkemdiche and Kamara?

If Rivals’ predictions are correct, Georgia and LSU fans will be disappointed on signing day.

Gwinnett blue-chippers Robert Nkemdiche of Grayson and Alvin Kamara of Norcross won’t announce their decisions until just before they sign a National Letter of Intent. Or, at least, that’s unless one of those college recruiting gurus pulls it out of them before Wednesday.

Nkemdiche, a defensive end for the Rams who originally committed to Clemson, is Rivals’ top prospect in the nation. Reports say it’s down to LSU and Ole Miss, but the Rivals crew of eight predictors all agree he’ll be a Rebel.

That’s despite a recent visit to LSU that included a photo op with former LSU basketball star Shaquille O’Neal, according to a blog on ajc.com

Kamara, rated 45th overall and No. 2 at running back in the country, soared up the recruiting charts while leading Norcross to the Class AAAAAA championship in the fall. Kamara is deciding between Georgia and Alabama, and while some observers thought Georgia was in the lead, it’s not so certain now

The Rivals prediction is unanimous for the reigning national champion Crimson Tide.

Kamara told UGASports.com it’s a matter of him figuring things out: "I'm trying to figure out what school has more qualities I'm looking for. Both visits had different things to offer, and I got what I needed out of the two."

All the speculation will end Wednesday.
