The Good Times Keep Rolling

Charlie Weis has already gotten a verbal commitment from the top quarterback in the nation, the top tight end in the nation and now he has gotten a verbal commitment from one of the top receivers in the country, as Duval Kamara announced that he will attend Notre Dame in Fall 2007. Kamara is a 6'5", 209 pound receiver out New Jersey (Charlie loves the Jersey guys). Kamara likely projects as another Maurice Stovall, but with 4 years of good coaching instead of one. Kamara is a tall, lanky receiver who can go up and catch the ball in traffic, but does not have blazing speed. It's already quite apparent that the commitment of Clausen is paying dividends for the Irish:
"I didn't plan on making an early decision," said the 6-foot-5, 209-pounder who is one of the nation's top players. "But I knew going into the process that Notre Dame was one of my favorites and after the spring game weekend, I knew it was the place for me."

Many factors led to Kamara's decision.

"It came down to getting a great education, the tradition at Notre Dame, playing for coach Weis and getting to play with the best quarterback in the nation," he said. "Jimmy Clausen and I talked at the spring game and he's a good guy and a great quarterback. That's a factor for sure, but mostly it came down to comfort, academics and just it being Notre Dame."
So who else will Clausen help bring into the fold? Arrelious Benn? Greg Little? Deonote Thompson? Marc Tyler? We can only hope.
