Ramacher Set to Visit Norman

Sooners Illustrated got the chance to talk with Dominic Ramacher, linebacker out of Denton Guyer HS in Denton (TX). Ramacher has played on the offensive side for the Wildcats so far through his career but has switched over to the defensive side which is where it appears he will play at the next level.

Just last month Dominic Ramacher was all set up to head to Norman to see the Red & White spring game as well as partake in the junior day. It ended up being a trip that Ramacher was unable to take due to an infection in one of his eyes.

Little time has passed since then but the 6-foot-3 and 225-pound Ramacher has wasted little time setting up another trip to Norman.

"I'm going up there to visit on the thirteenth which is a Friday, next Friday," Ramacher said. "I really like Oklahoma and I hope I get an offer from them. Just kind of been staying in contact and stuff like that."

The three-star linebacker prospect played mostly H-back last season for the Wildcats while also spelling J.W. Walsh, a four-star quarterback who is already on campus up in Stillwater at times. He finished the season with 23-carries for 175-yards and three-touchdowns and also had eleven-catches for 100-yards and another touchdown.

Schools like Arizona, Arkansas, Baylor, Michigan, Oregon State and Purdue are just a few schools that liked what they saw out of Ramacher and offered him a scholarship. Wake Forest joined the party as well bumping Ramacher up to 13-offers so far.

Oklahoma defensive ends Coach Bobby Jack Wright has been in charge of recruiting Ramacher.

"I really like Coach Wright," Ramacher started. "I like the kind of guy he is. I like the how he approaches the game of football and just the way he talks to me. He's a really good coach."

The Sooners history of winning is the key reason why Ramacher has so much interest in them on top of other things.

"They win. That's a big one is they win. And I know its Oklahoma and there is a lot of tradition there but I really like that they win," Ramacher said.

Ramacher says he has been living in the weight room. The last time Guyer tested out Ramacher squatted 405-pounds, benched 305-pounds and power cleaned 285-pounds.

When asked what he is looking for in a school Ramacher talked about chemistry amongst the team.

"Team chemistry and team bonding, just how tight and how close a team is because I think that's a huge part in winning football games. And just the way the coaches handle themselves when dealing with players. Atmosphere I guess you could say."
