Ft Lauderdale (FL) Dillard athlete Randy Ramsey took his official visit to Raleigh in November but that didn't end the Wolfpack's pursuit. He's been in contact with the coaches and the school is at the front of his mind heading into the home stretch.
Ramsey called that official visit a good experience and said the most memorable aspect of the trip was the fans and learning about how rabid the fan base can be.
"The coaches are real cool, too. They were just telling me if I come in here I can have a major impact on the program. They want me to help them get it back on its feet."
Other schools are making similar claims. Ramsey will take an official visit to Arkansas on January 24 and that's another program looking to get back on its feet under a second year head coach in Brett Bielema who moved to Fayetteville from Wisconsin. Ramsey said he could still take another official visit after the trip to Arkansas but nothing has been scheduled of yet.
Ramsey is up to 205 pounds at 6-2 and one of the big questions remaining in his recruitment isn't just where he will play in terms of a school, but a position as well.
"I'm hearing all kinds of stuff. They've got me labeled as an athlete, a safety, an outside linebacker or even a d-end. I had 20 sacks at d-end this year so I'm hearing a little about that."
Ramsey said he believes strong safety is where he's best suited to play on the next level.
