The 6-4, 285-pounder from Madison Central High School said his official visit weekend in Auburn gave him plenty of reasons to smile.
"We had a great time," says Ramsey, who made the drive to the Auburn campus with his parents. "We had a bunch of good players come in. My host was Jason Bosley, the center. Some of the offensive linemen got paired up with Zach Clayton and Steve (Ensminger), the quarterback, and Neil (Caudle), the other quarterback. We just hung out.
"On Friday we got here and had a dinner," notes Ramsey, who is already verbally committed to the Tigers and plans to sign with AU on Feb. 7th. "We ate at Outback with the players. Then when we to (Andrew) McCain's house and hung out. We met a bunch of Auburn students and that was a lot of fun.
"On Saturday we ate breakfast with the coaches and went over academics. We toured the stadium and athletic facilities and pretty much toured the campus during the day. Saturday night we ate back over at the stadium. We got to put jerseys on and run out onto the field. It was big-time."
The All-State offensive lineman is interested in majoring in either forestry or wildlife management. "I want to do something where I will be able to work outside," he says.
After eating steak and shrimp at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Ramsey got a chance to spend more time with his future teammates. "Saturday night we went to Ryan Shoemaker's house and played Nintendo the rest of the night. I got to meet a lot of guys on the team. I talked to the two kickers, Shoemaker and Zach Kutch, along with guys like Tyrone Green and Leon Hart--a bunch of the offensive linemen. I love them. They are great people.
"Really, the visit was great," he adds. "The whole weekend went well. I also think the big offensive line recruit we are trying to get in, Lee Ziemba, had a great time. I think we have a real good shot at him."
There is no recruiting left to do on Ramsey. "I am ready to get to Auburn," he says.
