Kamp enjoys Eugene
Oregon commit Sam Kamp had a rough start to his senior season. Kamp broke his collarbone after making a catch as a tight end just as the season was getting started and under his doctor’s advice, had surgery to help it heal faster and get ready for his collegiate career. Kamp said he came across the middle and while trying to gain a few extra yards, lowered his shoulder into a trio of linebackers and that is when he felt it. The 6-foot-5, 237-pounder says that the injury is feeling great and that if it were up to him he would have already been back on the field harassing opposing quarterbacks. However, Kamp's dad and his doctor are making him sit out the year just for precautionary reasons.
Kamp recently took his official visit to Eugene and he caught up with Duck Sports Authority to give us his thoughts on his trip and answer a few other questions.
"It was great." Coach (Jim) Fisher took me around and Coach Azz. I had a few talks with him," said Kamp. "It was great just to hear more about it. He explained to me more of what he wanted from me and we talked a lot about not making my senior year just a relaxed thing and he wants me to work to try to play next year. And if not he just wants me to get in the best shape I can basically. He said he wants me to stay around the same weight to play more of a defensive end position rather than a D-tackle position," continued Kamp.
As for the game day experience itself Kamp had a great time.
