Ramon Blakeney updates his recruitment

Ramon Blakeney (LB, Laurel, MS) - Ramon had 138 tackles, 7 sacks, 3 int's, and 4 forced fumbles for the '05 campaign. He was named the District 5(4A) MVP for his play on the field.

Colleges have taken notice.

"Ole Miss, Southern Mississippi, Mississippi State, LSU, and West Virginia came by to see me practice last week," added Ramon Blakeney.

Anything new Ramon show them?

"I have been hitting the weights pretty hard. I have gained around 10 pounds. I am a lot thicker now. I weighed right at 215 for the start of Spring practice."

The 6' 3", 215 pound linebacker has been hearing from eight schools.

"Well, I have West Virginia, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, MSU, Arkansas, Tulane, Army, and Tennessee texting and sending me stuff."

Are the Rebels still Blakeney's only offer?

"Yes sir, but I think the rest of them are getting pretty close now that they have seen me in person."

Any recent phone calls?

"MSU, Ole Miss, and Auburn call me about the same. They get in their one call per month, and then they send me text messages telling me to call them."

Has Ramon built a tight bond with any of the coaches that are recruiting him?

"To tell you the truth, I am pretty tight with all of the coaches. I am just going to sit back with my parents and make a decision on signing day."

Any Spring visits?

"I went to Ole Miss' Jr Day with my mother. I am going to try and make it back to their football camp, and I am going to go to Auburn's too, depending on my money. I am working a lot trying to save up for the camps. Hopefully I can save enough to make a few of them."

Why those two camps?

"Ole Miss, well, they have a really nice campus. This time, I want to check out their majors to see what my choices would be. And Auburn, I do not know too much about anybody but Ole Miss, so I want to see what they have to offer. Their recruiter has been really talking good, so I want to check it out."
