Ramsey excited about UT offer

Devearl Ramsey's recruitment has picked up after the spring evaluation period. The 2016 point guard gives Scout the latest.

One of the West Coast's top point guards in 2016 is 5-foot-10, 170-pound Devearl Ramsey from Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon.

A specialist in transition, Ramsey is an athletic guard who can get to the basket or knock down pull-up jumpers. He's a tough on the ball defender and improving as a creator.

The four-star prospect is pleased with his development.

"I’m happy," Ramsey said. "I’m being more aggressive and being a better overall point guard. I’m doing a good job getting assists, making the open shot and creating my own.

"The next step is getting better offensively. I need to make open shots and create easier shots for myself."

There are a handful of schools working the hardest on Ramsey right now.

"Texas is recruiting me really hard – they just offered – but same with Cal, USC, Michigan and N.C. State," he said.

Landing an offer from Texas was a big deal for the junior point guard.

"Texas is coming at me really hard but I’m trying to keep it wide open," Ramsey said. "After the first session, Texas called me and told me they really like me.

"I’m blessed to get that offer. It’s a really good school and I like Shaka (Smart) a lot. I know what he did at VCU and I know that he likes to push tempo."

Another school that has long been involved with Ramsey is USC.

"Coach (Andy) Enfield came in from Florida Gulf Coast and made an impact there," he said. "I like how they play."

Ramsey will continue to go through the spring and summer keeping his recruitment open.

"I want to get through this summer and whatever offers I pick up, or whoever really comes at me hard, I’ll make a decision when the time comes," he said.
