Four-star point guard Courtney Ramey is ready to get back on the court. After missing most of the summer with a broken jaw, Ramey is now about ready to be cleared, and colleges didn’t slow down their pursuit at all despite not being able to see him in April.
“I feel like I can play now, but I am not trying to make anything worse, so I should be back before NBA Camp in June,” said Ramey of his health.
When it comes to his game, Ramey said he has one major focus that he is working on.
“I am working on getting stronger,” said Ramey. “I know I need to have more strength so I can take that first bump and then finish at the rim.”
On the recruiting trail Ramey remains open with numerous schools tracking him very closely.
“The schools that have offered and Texas has also picked things up,” said Ramey. “I have offers from Missouri, St. Louis, Illinois, Ole Miss, Creighton, Kansas State, Iowa, and some others.”
Recently Ramey hasn’t made any visits, but he did have a chance to check out both Kansas and Kansas State in the fall.
About the trip to Kansas, Ramey said, “I went to Kansas during their Midnight Madness and it was just crazy. I liked that a lot.”
When it comes to Kansas State, he responded, “I saw a football game at Kansas State. That was a great atmosphere and the coaches seem like great people.”
For now Ramey is in no hurry to make any kind of college decision, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school.
“I want to go somewhere that I have a good relationship with the head coach,” said Ramey. “As a point guard you are the extension of the coach so it is very important to have a good relationship with him.”
