Kirby Smart: We Want Brice Ramsey Back

DESTIN, FL - Perhaps Brice Ramsey isn’t done with UGA quite yet.

At least according to UGA coach Kirby Smart. 

“I am actively been; been trying to recruiting Brice,” Kirby told reporters on Tuesday. “As is stands right now he is still looking around. We should have some more clarity on that in the next couple of weeks.”

Ramsey has met with a slew of schools since leaving the program. But he still hung around Athens enough to participate in parts of the Bulldogs’ spring practices. Insiders confirm that Ramsey had settled on transferring to an institution before backing away in May. 

“I thought there was still a chance out there,” Kirby said of Ramsey returning to UGA. “I told Brice: ‘You have done a great job here. You have done everything we’ve asked you to do on and off the field.’ He’s a great kid. He competed really hard last year. I thought he did a great job being involved in the competition.”

But Ramsey only punted in 2016, and decided after the season to look for another spot to play quarterback.

“When he came and told me he wanted to shop elsewhere I told him that I completely agreed, and understood that,” Kirby added. “He’s continued to do that, and continues to do it. But I do think at the quarterback position - it is a unique position. There is only one of the field. So if you can’t play there - you want to go play. But if you don’t have anywhere that you are sold on playing, and we have done a good job of actively talking with him - keeping communication; had him out to practice… its really a great thing to graduate from UGA, be part of a great program; and, hey, we’ve got two quarterbacks. He’s a guy who can come in and compete first, second or third. And he has great experience, and we want him.”
