San Bernardino Valley, Calif., offensive lineman Paul Ramirez has become the fourth Arkansas commitment to announce his intentions on Saturday and the 21st to do so in the 2016 recruiting class.
Ramirez chose Arkansas over Louisville, Indiana and others and announced his intention via a video on twitter that had him dropping a microphone to symbolize that he was done with recruiting.
"We talked about this on the ride and we said lets do this." Ramirez said.
He joined Moultrie, Ga., Colquitt County linebacker Dee Walker (6-3, 210), Marshall, Texas, safety Micahh Smith (6-0, 200) and North Dakota State College of Science cornerback Joseph Putu (6-2, 195, 4.37) as official visitors this weekend to announce their pledges to Arkansas.
"I checked out the facilities and the education wise was great," Ramirez said. "They got great facilities and everything you could ever need. This program will help build me and help me get there. This is the SEC the best league in the nation and it felt right to commit."
Ramirez' relationship with new Arkansas offesnsive line coach Kurt Anderson was also a factor.
"He is a great guy," Ramirez said. "He understands his players and he knows how to have fun with it but at the same time he takes serious when he needs too."
Ramirez feels good about both his run and pass blocking..
