Jamal Ramsey Talks About UC Visit

With an offer in hand prior to his Junior Day visit Tennessee quarterback Jamal Ramsey knew little about what to expect. After his visit he spoke with Bearcat Insider about the visit and his feelings about the Bearcats.

"The visit was great," Jamal Ramsey said on his way back home to Tennessee. "I loved it and it was a very good trip."

Ramsey who has also visited Mississippi State for a visit explained the differences between the two.

"Cincinnati blew Mississippi State away. The facilities are great and I felt like part of the family as soon as I arrived on campus."

When asked to grade between the SEC school and the Bearcats he was quick and to the point.

"I'd give Cincinnati a definite "A" and Mississippi State a "B" as a grade."

Ramsey who arrived prior to the scheduled time for the visiting juniors to report spent time with both head coach Brian Kelly and quarterbacks coach Greg Forest on Thursday afternoon.

"I was great to meet with Coach Kelly. He talked about the education I'd receive at the University of Cincinnati and then he spoke about football. He said they really liked what I did on film and felt I was the type of person they want in their program. Coach Forest is a very nice guy and really laid back. I'm sure on the field he's intense but off the field he's laid back and that is the type of coach I want to play for."

During our conversation Jamal talked about the tour given the juniors and what he saw during and before.

"We had some time so we walked the catwalk and looked at the stadium. I also went down and walked on the field and it was real neat. The weight room is huge and very nice and getting the chance to go to a basketball game was also great. I plan on coming back for some spring practices and summer camp as well."

While Cincinnati blew away Mississippi State Ramsey has other schools he's looking at checking out.

"I'm planning on visiting Vanderbilt, Louisville and UAB and then make my choice this summer."

Ramsey was part of another top Junior Day as the Bearcats wrapped up a total of four Junior Day events with over 400 high school prospects taking part. With record numbers of prospects having interest in the Bearcats, Brian Kelly and his staff will have a high quality list to choose from in the coming months.
