The 2019 class is becoming known as one of the most talented classes the state of Georgia has produced in a number of years. One of the deepest position groups in the 2019 class is the wide receiver group, and Marietta (GA) wide out Ramel Keyton is one of the best. Just under 6-foot-3 , Keyon has a long frame and excellent hands which has caught the attention of major programs across the south.
One of Keyton’s first offers came from the Florida Gators.
“I’ve been to Florida twice.” Keyton said. “We walked around the facilities then saw the spring game and met with the coaches. Wide receivers coach Kerry Dixon is recruiting me at Florida. He’s the one I speak with the most.”
Tennessee is another team in the mix early for the Marietta prospect.
“I like the coaching staff at Tennessee.” Keyton said. “We talk about how they need play-makers and the depth chart and all that.
The Georgia Bulldogs might have offered later than others, but that might not hurt their chances in the long run.
“I always watched Georgia growing up.” Keyton said. “Ever since I was about 7 I’ve been watching Georgia play. I came from training with my coach Terrance (Edwards) and I spoke with wide receivers coach James Coley who gave me the offer. He seems really enthusiastic when I first met him.”
Keyton says he does not have a top 10 group at this time, but will make one at some point this year. Teams including Georgia, Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, Miami, and Oregon will likely make the list. Keyton visited Florida and Tennessee for their spring games last month, and visited Georgia back in January with the True19 group.
Keyton was one of the most productive receivers in the state last year as a sophomore, catching 77 passes for 1347 yards and 7 touchdowns. He has a good frame, great hands, shows great body control and balance, and does a nice job of getting separation. He’s not a blazer, but can still get behind the secondary and make big plays down the field. Look for Keyton to continue torching defenses in north Georgia this fall, and become a top priority for multiple schools in the 2019 class.
