Ramirez Wants TCU Offer

The TCU Horned Frogs are in need of linebackers and they're currently evaluating Lee's Summit West LB, Nick Ramirez. The 6'2" 230 pound prospect likes the thought of playing for positional coach, Randy Shannon.

The TCU Horned Frogs have proven once again that they have one of the nation's best defenses. While it's true they aren't ranked as high statistically as they've been in the past, they have proven to be capable of slowing down the high octane offenses of the Big 12. It still holds true that offense wins games and defense wins championships and the Frogs continue to live by this philosophy.

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that some of the top uncommitted defenders in the country are still considering the Frogs. You can now add Nick Ramirez, from Lee's Summit West High School in Lee's Summit, MO, to that list. The 6'2" 230 pound prospect is ranked as the #10 MLB in the country and he says a couple of new schools have entered the picture for his services.

"So far it's been pretty good" said Ramirez. "I recently de-committed from Missouri and a few new colleges have come into the mix."

While he holds offers from Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Colorado, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska and Purdue, Ramirez says a pair of Big 12 programs have started to show heavy interest.

"TCU and Texas Tech have started talking to me and both programs told me they're going to check out my film and let me know something soon, hopefully by this weekend."

While neither has offered, Ramirez says an offer from TCU would be huge in his eyes.

"If I get an offer, I'll go down and visit them because I would be extremely interested" he said. "TCU usually has a pretty dang good defense and they have a great program."

"Their linebacker coach is really good and he's coached guys like Ray Lewis and people like that" said Ramirez. "It's huge that they're showing interest in me because there's no other coach that I would rather learn from than Coach Shannon."

So where does TCU stand if they do extend an offer? Ramirez says they would be in good shape.

"I'm going to take my time this time because I rushed into a decision the last time" he said. "That's why I de-committed from Mizzou because that was the only school I had been to and I committed without visiting any other schools."

"If TCU offers, I'm definitely going to visit but I already have a visit set up to K-State for December the 1st so I can't make it to their game against Oklahoma."

"I'm not in a hurry this time" said Ramirez. "I'm going to make sure this time but the schools that are still after me are Mizzou, of course, K-State, TCU, Texas Tech, Purdue and schools like that."

"I'm not sure when I'll make my decision but I'm not going to rush it."
