South Notebook: 2013 Prospects

Here are some quick notes on 2013 prospects out of the South Region.

  • Eddie Printz was offered by Kentucky early and he took a visit to Lexington earlier this week. The 6-foot-3, 198 pound quarterback out of Marietta (GA) Lassiter had this to say about his visit:

    "The campus is very impressive at Kentucky. They also have my major, Sports Management. I like how the coaches at Kentucky are committed to winning and Coach Phillips is easy to talk to. It was a good trip. Coach Sanders really impressed me and I think I could learn a lot from him," said Printz.

  • Deon Mix is expected to be one of the top prospects in the state of Mississippi in 2013 and he recently added an offer from the University of Alabama.

    Mix has camped in Tuscaloosa three years straight and he is happy about the offer.

    "I always like the vibe I get when at Alabama and I like how they run things. Their fans remind me a lot of the fans we have here at South Panola. The camp had a lot of talent there and that forced me to work even harder. I really liked that because I see now that I am not where I need to be. I really like Alabama because they make me feel at home," said Mix.

    The 6-foot-5, 305 pound offensive tackle also has offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Southern Miss.

  • Every camp Brice Ramsey attends, he picks up an offer. He was offered by Clemson and Georgia during spring practice, but has since camped at each school. They re-assured him that he had an offer from them.

    Since then, the 6-foot-3, 195 pound signal caller out of Kingsland (GA) Camden County has camped at Florida and Florida State, both offered him shortly after the camp was complete.

    He has really created a buzz throughout the South over the past couple of months. Georgia is currently his leader.

  • Brentwood Academy always has top talent and they could have one of the best in their state (Tennessee) in 2013. Jalen Ramsey is a 5-foot-11, 180 pound cornerback that has already been offered by Arkansas State, Kentucky, and Tennessee. He is starting to get him name out there and he has the size and skills to add many more offers in the coming months.

  • Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, Fla. has some talented juniors and one of them is linebacker James Hearns.

    He is a 6-foot-3, 230 pound linebacker that has drawn a lot of attention recently. Offers are coming in and he has a lot of them.

    "My coach tells me I have been offered by over 20 schools," Hearns said. "I just talked to Notre Dame this week and they like me a lot. My coach tells me Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, LSU, South Carolina, and some others have offered me. I am not sure who all has offered me, my coach handles that stuff."

    Hearns grew up a fan of both FSU and Miami, but said he is completely open at this time.

  • Jeryl Brazil is an athlete out of the small town of Loranger in Louisiana and he is starting to get some attention.

    The 5-foot-9, 176 pound junior has picked up offers from LSU and Southern Miss recently and he wants more.

    "A lot of SEC schools are starting to come at me a little bit, but nothing major is happening right now other than with the two schools that have offered me," said Brazil. "I am from a really small town, so I am doing everything I can to get exposure. I want to get a lot more offers."
