Should Kentucky elect to go the junior college route this season, Ratliffe may become a bigger option for the Wildcats than he already is. Already with offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson and Missouri, Ratliffe is also getting interest from Kentucky, Connecticut, Louisville and Indiana. "Kentucky has been down to see him," said Tim Ryan, head coach at Central Florida Community College. "They haven't offered him yet, though."
The lack of offer from Kentucky would definitely be unrelated from his skill set. "He's played tremendous this year," said Ryan. "He broke our all-time career scoring record. He broke our single season record last year. He's averaging 28 points per game and about 12 rebounds. More than that, he has the ability to find guys with the pass," Ryan continued.
"His ability to pass the ball is great," said Ryan. "He's the most efficient player I've ever seen. He passes out of double and triple teams. He can put it on the floor," said Ryan.
Ratliffe has great size and skill offensively. It all stars with two major assets. "He has tremendous hands," said Ryan. "He's got great hands. He can finish at a high level around hte basket," continued Ryan. "This is obviously demonstrated by his 64 percent shooting from the field. He can also step out and knock down the three."
Ricardo hasn't taken or planned any visits at this time and he's taking his time with his recruitment. There's no timetable that Ryan knows of for a decision.
