Q & A with 4-star UNC Commit Kamarro Edmonds

Q & A with 4-star UNC Commit Kamarro Edmonds

Running Backs are a position football teams are always on the look for,  and Kamarro Edmonds, a junior at Havelock High School,  is a very special pick up for North Carolina. He got offers from many great schools, including Virginia Tech, UCF, Tennessee, Missouri, Maryland, and the defending national champs, LSU. Edmonds is already on ESPN’s Top 300 list as well as being in the top 150 players in the nation for 247Sports. He should easily be able to get higher on that list with a great senior season.  Some schools have expressed interest in him as a defensive back, instead of running back. 

Havelock High School has had its fair share of great recruits in the past, one being Carolina Panthers newly-acquired wide receiver Pharoh Cooper.  In Edmonds’ junior season, he rushed for just over 1,400 yards with 17 touchdowns.
Edmonds could be compared to Giants’ great, Tiki Barber.  Edmonds’ pure power and shiftiness reminds one of how Barber played with the Giants.   Overall, Edmonds has had a great high school run, and I believe he is one of the top players in the 2021 recruiting class.
