Rambo Ready for State Championship Run

RaiderPower.com interviewed 2017 Cedar Hill receiver Charleston Rambo about his new expectation since transferring to the Long Horns, his relationship with Texas Tech and his overall recruitment.

Charleston Rambo is a surefire candidate for the all-name team of whichever conference he ends up playing in at the next level, but he will likely also be a candidate to make the all-conference team for his school.

The talented 6-foot-2, 160-pound wide receiver is rated at No. 126 in the 2017 Scout 300 and is ranked the No. 4 receiver in the state of Texas.

Rambo was unable to parlay his talents at Dallas Woodrow Wilson into a state championship last season, but will have a great shot at doing so in 2015 as the receiver has transferred to two-time defending state champ Cedar Hill.

"On varsity I'm gonna start off on the outside and he might move me to inside. They do a lot of moving around receivers there, I'll have to get used to it. The only thing different from Wilson to Cedar Hill is that I'll be moving around."

Texas Tech is recruiting Rambo, who racked up 722 yards on only 33 catches with 11 touchdown receptions during his sophomore year. Rambo saw limited involvement in Wilson's offense last season and would like to attend a college that spreads the ball around.

"We were more of a running team. We would run the ball more than pass it. I touched the ball probably three or four times a game, but whenever I touched it I always scored or got like 60 yards. I'm not sure why I didn't get the ball more. We finished fourth in our district and got knocked out of the playoffs in the first round."

That likely won't happen at Cedar Hill, the reigning Texas Class 6A division II state champions, and the explosive receiver will look to see a more expanded role as the coaches look to take advantage of his skills.

Rambo is carefully considering where he'd like to go to school, and has a good idea of his ideal university.

"I would like to go to a college that has a history of sending receivers to the league, and a college that can prepare me for life after football. If football doesn't work out, I want to know that my college will prepare me for jobs afterwards."

Rambo didn't make it up to one of Texas Tech's two DFW satellite camps last month. OU and Texas Tech are showing the most love Rambo early, and he will try to unofficially visit both campuses this summer.

"Those coaches there (at OU), they have a relationship with me. With Texas Tech, they're showing the most love."

The talented DFW receiver is nowhere near a decision yet and was quick to emphasize that although those two schools are showing more love, he does not have any favorites at this point in the process. Rambo holds offers from Arizona State, Kansas, Miami, Oklahoma, SMU, Texas Tech, and North Texas among others.
