Devearl Ramsey has put his name on the radars of many schools with his aggressive play. As a freshman this past year, the 5'10 point guard led his Sierra Canyon HS team to a 17-11 record, averaging 16.0 ppg., 4.0 apg. and 4.0 spg. His impressive freshman year earned him a roster spot on the USA?Basketball Men's U16 National Team, which won the FIBA Americas U16 championship with a 94-48 blowout victory over Argentina in the finals.
"Playing with the national team was great, I learned so much. Playing for a different coach and against other top players in the world I really learned a lot of different things about the game" said Ramsey about his time with Team USA.
With only one year of high school basketball under his belt, Ramsey still a lot more basketball to play, but he still sees room for improvement. This offseason he has been getting into the gym daily, "I've been really working hard this offseason. Working on the little things, especially my deep 3, from NBA range and beyond."
Ramsey still has a while until he makes his college decision, but he already has a couple of attributes he'll be looking for in a school, "I think I want to stay close to home, but it changes all the time. When I was younger I had always wanted to go East Coast. I do want to play in a style that pushes the pace, I want to be able to make plays in the open floor. I think I'll make my decision sometime during my senior year, probably start trimming down my list around the end of my junior year."
The already highly ranked point guard doesn't necessarily want to play at a power conference school, it's more important for him to find a place he feels comfortable. "I don't need to go to a big school, I just want to go to a school that fits me. Big or small it doesn't matter."
Expect Ramsey to begin collecting offers from high major schools around the country, watching him play this past weekend with Cal Supreme 16u, he really impressed many scouts and college coaches. In a 77-42 victory over the SoCal Cavs, Ramsey had an easy 17 points and 2 assists. The first play of the game Ramsey picked the opposing point guard at half court, stole the ball and threw down a thunderous dunk. The crowd, including many college coaches was in awe.
