Ramsey Excited About Future

Earlier this year Allen Ramsey verbally committed to the Maryland football program. His plans have now changed. Ramsey is now a member of Wake Forest's recruiting class. The 5-11, 175-pound cornerback from Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Dillard is one of many prospects from his area that have joined the Demon Deacons in recent classes.

Allen Ramsey had picked up an offer from Rutgers and Florida State in addition to Wake and Maryland and as recently as earlier this month he was planning an official visit to the New Jersey school. It appears as though he won't be needing to do that anymore.

While he has had some questions about whether he wanted to spend his college years in Maryland for a while now, Ramsey's decision to flip to Wake seems to say more about the Deacons, in a positive way, than it does about the Terrapins.

"Just being on campus," Ramsey said when asked why he flipped his commitment to Wake Forest. "The coaches and players made me feel like I was at home."

Ramsey said he built strong bonds with all the members of the coaching staff in short order and that made his decision very easy. As he said, he really meshed well with all of the players as well.

"I've got a good relationship with everyone," he reiterated. "Everyone there loved me."

It's easy to see why the coaches would love what Ramsey brings to the table. He has excellent athletic ability and could earn a spot in Wake's rotation relatively early in his college career.

Seeing as how Ramsey has already changed his mind once, is there a chance he might do it again? Not according to the young man himself. He told DeaconSports that he is solid in his commitment to Wake Forest and feels as though he has found the school where he will be most comfortable for the next four or five years.

Ramsey is ranked the No. 52 corner in the nation by Scout.com.
