Watching highlights of Ft. Lauderdale (FL) Dillard defensive end Randy Ramsey, you wouldn't know this is his first year playing defensive end. At 6-3, 200 pounds he's become one of South Florida's most productive defenders off the edge and NC State, in particular, has taken notice. The Pack has offered and Ramsey had a chance to make an official visit to Raleigh this past weekend. While the game didn't going State's way, Ramsey was impressed with the game day atmosphere.
"The fans were crazy," said Ramsey. "The coaches are cool and they
were just telling me they need some guys that want to come into the
program and work hard and go as hard as they can in practice. They
want players that are committed to the football team and are
committed to the school.
The coaches and the players are probably what stuck out to me on the
visit. Jacoby Brissett was my host on the visit. They weren't really
trying to get me to commit they just said for me to take my time
Ramsey has been listed on one recruiting site or another at
virtually every position on defense. He could play defensive end,
linebacker or safety but for now, the Wolfpack is simply saying
"I don't know where I'm going to be playing in college and that's
the crazy thing about it. That's what the coaches (at State) were
saying that they could stick me anywhere. This is my first year
playing defensive end and I like it. I've been very productive
there. I've got 19 sacks so far this year."
There was some thought prior to his visit to State that Ramsey could
possibly pull the trigger on a commitment to the Wolfpack. That
didn't happen this weekend but State is still a serious option with
an SEC program in the mix as well.
"I want to visit a few schools but I'm not sure exactly which ones.
I know I might go visit Kentucky. There's about an 80% chance I'll
go visit Kentucky. Right now, State and Kentucky are the main two
schools I'm looking at. I hope to make a decision in December or
