Florida DB Talks About Terps Commitment

CB Allen Ramsey committed to the Terps at practice on April 9th during his visit

Florida cornerback Allen Ramsey became the sixth Maryland commit after he committed to the Terps at a spring practice. “I committed after the Friday Night Lights practice on April 9th. When I told the coaches I had committed, they were very proud of me because they really wanted me to commit come to Maryland and become a Maryland Terp.”

What really stood out for Ramsey was Maryland's campus and focus on academics. “I really liked the campus a lot,” he said. “I like the way Coach Friedgen really preaches about academics before he talks about football,” Ramsey said. “They stuck their neck out for me. They showed me around campus and I really liked the school and I liked the coaching staff.”

The process of becoming a Terp has already started for the 5'11” 175 pound Dillard (Fort Lauderdale, FL) product. “When I told Coach Friedgen I had committed, he introduced me to Adrian Moten, the senior linebacker and [Moten] brought me over to the defensive side of the ball, because I play cornerback, and introduced me to all the defensive players. Ever since then, me and Adrian have been texting almost every day now.”

Another reason why Maryland stood out for Ramsey was because Maryland found him and instantly liked what they saw. “I was looking at Tennessee, Stanford, Ole Miss, and TCU, but Maryland was the only one that offered me. They only saw two minutes of my highlight film off of a website of my 7-on-7 team and that made me want to jump on their team because they were a school that didn't know about me until that.”

Maryland coaches will have another chance over the summer to see one of their future defensive backs. “I'm planning on attending Maryland's overnight camp in June. I'm going to try to go to some combines this summer.”
