Ramirez values his winning resume. "It helps me a lot because people see me as a winner," Ramirez said. "I'll go out there and play – no matter even if I'm sick – I'll just do what's necessary to help this team win."
On Monday, the 6-foot-4 wing man who is a native of Miami committed to play at Virginia Commonwealth for Coach Anthony Grant. Grant, also a native of Miami, has Tony Pujol on his staff that happened to coach Ramirez for 2 seasons at Northwest Christian Academy.
"It was very important," Ramirez said of his relationship with the current staff. "I needed to feel comfortable and know that I will be pushed. It'll be difficult being away from home (so you need somebody)."
"D-Lo" is expected to play the shooting guard and possibly small forward at VCU. The Rams have 4 more scholarships to award to members of the Class of 2007.
