It isn't unusual for a highly touted high school prospect to receive hundreds of recruiting correspondence in a short period of time, but not from a single school and all in the same day.
Alvin Kamara recently arrived home from school to find his mailbox literally overflowing with letters, which is unusual enough in itself. However, he soon realized that he had received a total of 105 letters from Nick Saban and the Alabama football program, each of which was uniquely written with no duplication.
“It definitely caught my attention. But they’re not my favorite college yet or anything like that," Kamara said in another interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
"I got home and they were failing out of my mailbox. It was crazy but I liked it," said Kamara, who is apparently flattered by all the attention.
The star running back currently has collected nine offers, including Mississippi State and Syracuse. Alvin says the schools who are currently recruiting him the hardest are Alabama, Georgia and Syracuse, and he visited Florida this weekend, with Clemson next on the list.
The interesting move by Saban is yet another example of how he maintains his persona as one of the hardest-working recruiters in all of college football. Even aside from the recent one-day bombardment, Kamara says he usually only gets around five letters a day from the Tide.
