One name that is starting to get a lot of recognition around the state of Tennessee is Brentwood Academy's Jalen Ramsey.

Ramsey, a sophomore, who will be a junior this fall, put on a show this past Saturday at Maurice Fitzgerald's In Full Motion Saturday Night Lights Combine held at Father Ryan High School in Nashville.

InsideTennessee.com caught up with Ramsey after the combine to talk about recruiting and about his outstanding performance.

"I had a pretty good day out here," Ramsey said. "To be named the Co Defensive MVP of this camp is definitely a honor."

Ramsey, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound athlete is deceptively fast and is very strong for his size. He played corner during one on one competition and 7-on-7 drills and ended up with several pass break-ups, two interceptions and didn't have a pass caught against him the entire day. He also ran a hand held 4.38 and jumped a vertical leap of 41 inches.

After Saturday's peformance and an earlier performance at a Nike Camp, the soon to be junior has to be one of the early favorites as one of the top prospects in the state of Tennessee in 2013.

One school that Ramsey is getting a lot of attention from is the University of Tennessee.

"I would have to say they are recruiting me the hardest," Ramsey said. "I really like Tennessee a lot, I went up there this spring, everything is really great there."

While no official verbal offers have been extended yet for Ramsey, he expects that to change in the near future.

"I think a lot of schools are close to offering," Ramsey said. "Especially after all the coaches came by the school this spring."

One thing that has slowed Ramsey on that front is the fact that he didn't play his sophomore season due to a knee injury.

"Jalen is a very hard worker and a very talented young man," one high school coach said at the combine. "I feel like he will be the No. 1 guy in the state next year."

THE INSIDE TAKE ON RAMSEY

A very talented young man that possesses a lot of physical talents. Very tall, very athletic athlete that can play a lot of different positions. Very fluid hips, he can cut on a dime and leave you change. His change of direction appears to be really good at this point.

It's hard to see in person that he is coming off a knee injury. He showed great feet and great speed. He is definitely a competitor. You can tell he gives it his all at everything he does.

A very humble young man, very easy to talk to. He is a lock down type corner, if he continues to grow, he could be a standout safety. Look for this young man's stock to go out the roof by the end of summer after he attends several camps at different schools.

Note: He will attend his first summer camp at Tennessee on Saturday June 4.
