Reports: Jalen Ramsey to FSU

Postby Zach Abolverdi » Tue Feb 05, 2013 10:35 am

Several sites are reporting that five-star CB Jalen Ramsey will sign with FSU tomorrow. I sent a text to his father seeking comment, but I haven't gotten anything and don't expect to.

Obviously this is disappointing news for the Gators. They recruited Ramsey for months and were thought to be his favorite at one point or another. I was thinking UF for him last week, but that was a pure guess. There has been zero info coming from Ramsey's camp in the past month.

But like I've said for weeks, every target left on Florida's board is a luxury at this point besides defensive linemen. Ramsey was an important prospect for UF and I know missing on him (especially to FSU) hurts Gator fans. However, keep in mind that Florida is stacked in the secondary and has the nation's No. 1 corner coming in. Go watch some VH3 highlights and it will cheer you up. :cool4:

Not to pull the ole "we didn't want him anyways" (obviously we did) but I was never really impressed with his film. Did not seem to play with much speed or athleticism. He was, however, a big body to match up well with the taller SEC receivers.

Hopefully he's pulling Jimbo's leg here and signs with the good guys tomorrow. If not, good luck in clown town (and covering D. Robinson & A. Fulwood)

Let's hope we have better results than last year when we were in on so many players who ended up going elsewhere.

I used to watch Henry Aaron play in Atlanta back in the day. He seemed very slow but always seemed to get to the ball. He led baseball in doubles and is right up there with triples. What does this have to do with Ramsey? Some players only turn on the burners when they need to. Aaron would always seem to lope after fly balls and always seemed to get there just in time to make the easy catch. Maybe this kid is the same way...or not.

Why would a 5-star DB want to join a class where he'd only be the second best on an already stacked team at the position. I'm guessing that's what pushed him away.

He is going to FSU because of Pruitt. Pruitt has been recruiting him for over a year and Pruitt played at MTSU with his father.

Well, maybe this will help Jimbo keep his job ... 'cause we want Jimbo to keep his job.

Not what you'd call a decision maker. From Kiffin to Jimbo.

Can't believe nobody else has said it (if Ramsey does sign with FSU):

Zach : Other reports are saying that this is not true and the leaked information is inaccurate.

For what it's worth, reports that all schools involved in Jalen Ramsey's recruitment have been informed of his decision are inaccurate.

i'm not sure people considering kiffin are the "character types" we are currently looking for, but i reserve final judgement till signing day... everyone knows he is a lame duck coach currently

Maybe, but Rivals already has him listed as a FSwho commit. You can say what you want about Rivals, they do their homework the day before signing day.

If its Fla St. what a mistake! He goes from the Crooks to the Criminoles. Pruitt may not even be there in 2 yrs. Let something better come along and he will get out of there faster than the previous 6. Never sign for a Coach. Sign for a school.

Did you catch the part about starting too? Pruitt is selling playing time apparently.
