Kamar Greenhouse traveled down to the Ragin' Cajuns skills camp for second time, attending camp last season as a junior. This year he returned, showing that he was fully recovered from an arm injury and flashing his talent against some of the top talent in attendance. This year, Kamar didn't leave Lafayette without an offer.
"We were about to leave camp and Coach Willis told me I needed to stay around and speak with Coach Hudspeth," Kamar stated. "We walked to Coach Hudspeth's office with a group of athletes and he talked to all of us about being part of the Ragin' Cajun program and winning another bowl. Coach Hudspeth asked me if I was ready to become part of the program and I told him I was committing."
Greenhouse caught the attention of the Cajun staff during last summer's camp as a junior. During the fourth game of the season against Pineville Kamar's junior year came to an abrupt end when he broke his arm late in the contest. But Greenhouse's second camp performance was enough to convince the Cajun staff to offer him after running a 4.5 in the forty.
"Coach Willis told me that right now I'm really raw but that once I get into the program, I will become a really good athlete and reach my full potential," Greenhouse said. "He said they wanted to see me come back and perform well again this year after missing most of the season last year. I wanted to show them I could cover man, but we didn't get to do that in camp this year. I wanted to be a Ragin' Cajun and this is where I want to play."
While the Cajuns were his first offer this summer, Greenhouse has received letters and phone calls from other programs as well.
"I've heard from Louisiana Tech, Cincinnati, Louisiana-Monroe, Southeastern and McNeese State so far this year," Kamar stated. I was supposed to attend a Louisiana Tech camp, but I had to work that day and couldn't make the trip. My focus the rest of the summer will now be on finishing the last quarter of our program, getting up at 6am every morning and working out."
