Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Dillard linebacker Randy Ramsey is very excited about taking his visit to Arkansas this weekend and thinks it just might be a perfect situation for him.
Ramsey (6-3, 210, 4.57) is coming off a senior season in which he line up as a defensive end and had a whopping 25 sacks while terroizing quarterbacks.
"They (the Razorbacks) told me my chances for playing time is highly likely," Ramsey said Friday before starting his visit. They're looking for a guy that can cover and come over the edge.
"I see myself playing outside linebacker," added Ramsey, who is visiting Arkansas with his mother. "The guy that can stick the nickel and blitz when they need me to blitz."
He was quick to pass along the credit for his big season that also included four forced fumbles.
"I had 25 sacks with the help of my other D-end," Ramsey said. "If it wasn't for him I would have that many sacks so we were both dominate."
Ramsey, who is also considering Kentucky and Illinois and may visit one of those schools next week, said he has a plan going into his Arkansas visit.
"I just want to have a good time and meet the coaches and get to know the players," Ramsey said. "Get to know the campus a little bit and see if it's the right fit for me."
Arkansas assistant coach Randy Shannon is the chief recruiter for Ramsey, who has gained an inch and put on 10 pounds since this summer.
"He's a nice guy," Ramsey said. " He told me about everything about the school. I just want to get up there and see."
Ramsey, who sports a 3.0 grade point average and plans to major in either business or communication, also plays small forward and power forward for his school's basketball team.
But he admits that football is his first love and he has played corner, safety, linebacker and defensive end during his four seasons at the school.
"I just play football," Ramsey said. " It wasn't that hard for me because I can play anywhere. I love the game that much. You put me anywhere (and) I'll excel."
