Ramsey enjoys first trip to Papa John's

The University of Louisville football staff hosted a bunch of prospects on Saturday night, including several players already committed to the Cardinals. One of the commitments in the stands watching was Clayton, Ohio, Northmont defensive end Terry Ramsey. Cardinal Authority spoke to Ramsey to get the latest.

University of Louisville football commitment Terry Ramsey said his first impression of a game in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium was a lasting one.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound defensive end was at U of L for a game for the first time, watching the Cardinals down Houston 20-13.

"It was a really, really good time," Ramsey said. "It was the first time I had been there and I loved the atmosphere and the fans.

"I got a chance to talk with coach (Shawn) Watson and it was good. It was just a great experience for me."

A three-star prospect, Ramsey had been on several visits to campus. He said he plans on taking his official visit in mid-December.

But he said coming for a game was "really big for me."

"I love how they play defense and I can see myself fitting in there," Ramsey said. "That's exactly how I like to play, so I was watching them close."

Ramsey, who was dressed in a U of L baseball cap and t-shirt, said his high school career is complete after a loss to Cincinnati Elder in the first round of the playoffs. Northmont finished 8-2 and had 55 total tackles.

"It was a good year," he said. "Now, I just need to get stronger. I have to add some strength before I get to college."

Ramsey said one thing he didn't expect was a few fans not only know who he was but knowing his name, noting "that was really nice."
