Alabama sent recruit 105 letters in one day

Alabama really, really wants four-star recruit Alvin Kamara to be its next running back.

So much so that the Tide sent Kamara, a junior for Norcross, Ga., 105 letters — in one day.

"Yea it was 1 days worth of mail!" Kamara said via Twitter. "I was shocked!! I didn't even know they could do that."

There were so many letters that they were overflowing out of the mailbox and onto the ground. Kamara scooped up all the mail, spread it on the table, took a couple pictures with it and then saved the lot in a shoebox.

It wasn't the first time Alabama had spammed Kamara. He recalled a time when he received "six or seven" letters from the Tide at one time. Georgia Tech had sent him a similar amount.

"When I saw that 105 from Bama I didn't know what to do," Kamara said.

Kamara rushed for more than 1,500 yards in 2011 and increased his stock during the Rising Seniors Georgia Junior Bowl in December.

In addition to an offer from Alabama, Kamara said he also has offers from Auburn, Clemson, Maryland, Georgia, Vanderbilt, Syracuse, Tennessee and Mississippi State. Kamara said he's going to Florida this weekend and hopes to pick up another offer.

But Kamara said no one is recruiting him as hard as Alabama.

"I went there [for junior day] and it went well," Kamara told "I liked the atmosphere. It's SEC football. It's big-time football. You can feel it when you go up there."
