Someone Get the Lights

As far as Brice Ramsey is concerned recruiting is over.

That hasn't prevented a slew of schools, namely Alabama and Florida, from pursuing the Georgia commit.

"Alabama and Florida have been recruiting me hard," Ramsey said in an interview Monday night. "A lot of schools have, but my commitment is to go to Georgia, and that's where I will be in January."

Ramsey had a lengthy videoconference with Tide coach Nick Saban in May. The Gators have been pursuing the signal caller as well – stepping up their attempts to lure him to Gainesville.

But the Elite 11 quarterback said he's no longer interested in being recruited by anyone besides the Bulldogs.

"I am not planning on visiting any more colleges in the future," Ramsey said. "My focus is on my commitments for the summer – the opening, Elite 11 and our wing-T camp – and winning a state title this fall with Camden as well as preparing to play in the SEC."

Its no wonder Ramsey wants to focus on his high school team. While Camden is an astonishing 135-13 since 2001 and is considered a major threat to win the state title, it enters a new, more challenging region this season. Confronting the Wildcats in 2012 is no doubt the most daunting regular season in recent Camden history.

The three-time state champions have been place in rugged Region 1-AAAAAA, with Valdosta, Lowndes, Colquitt County, Coffee, Tift County and Brunswick. Schools in the new region have combined to win 34 state titles – nine coming since 1994.

As far as the future is concerned, Ramsey said he's glad to be in what he view the capable hands of two quarterback developers.

"Mark Richt and Mike Bobo have a history of producing top quarterbacks," Ramsey said.

Ramsey has a point. Consider that Richt has quite a history with quarterbacks: A quarterback who claimed the most all-time wins as he concluded his career (David Greene; Seattle Seahawks); a 2005 SEC champion (D.J. Shockley; Atlanta Falcons); a #1 NFL Draft pick (Matthew Stafford; Detroit Lions); and two Heisman Trophy winners while at Florida State (Chris Weinke and Charlie Ward). That's not even mentioning current signal caller Aaron Murray, who broke a school record with 35 touchdowns in 2011.

Ramsey closed the conversation in matter of fact manner: "I am shutting things down."
