Running back Jacob Ramsey of Columbus Independence had a busy camp season and is now focusing on working with his team for the upcoming football season.

"We went to Otterbein as a team from Wednesday to Sunday to get a focus going," Ramsey said. "We have kept it going since. This team is really coming together."

He has also been working on keeping his weight down.

"I was 220-225 last year but I decided I would be a better back if I got my weight down," he said. "I am about 210 now."

Ramsey had a solid camp season, but college programs would like to see some more of him on the field before they offer.

"Nothing new as far as offers but there is a lot of talk," he said. "Schools are talking about seeing me early in the season and offering."

One such school is the hometown school, Ohio State.

"My coach talked to Ohio State and they had looked over my camp tape and liked what they saw," Ramsey said. "They said they wanted to look over my first two games and if they liked what they saw they would probably offer."

Ramsey is also keeping a focus on academics.

"I am taking the test every time it is scheduled until I am satisfied with my result," he said.

Ramsey is one of the top 100 prospects in Ohio as rated by Ohio High magazine. He missed all of last season due to injury.
