Converse (Texas) Judson 2015 safety Keivon Ramsey currently holds offers from Texas Tech and UTSA, and several other programs have picked up their interest.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound safety has made himself known a top prospect in the 2015 recruiting class, and the attention has come from near and far.
"Actually a lot of schools are starting to come at me now," Ramsey said. "I have to contact Arkansas, Vanderbilt has contacted me, I got a couple of letters from LSU, Utah State they just contacted me. I talked to the head coach from Colorado just last week as a matter of fact."
In the near future, Ramsey did not know the exact dates, he plans to attend junior day events at Baylor and UTSA. He was able to visit both schools in the fall.
"Baylor, I actually went up to the Baylor-UT game when they played and Baylor, it's live up there," Ramsey said. "It's like a family atmosphere and everything. I just like it. The same thing about UTSA. I went when they played Oklahoma State and eventhough they lost the fans were great. It was a great environment to be in."
In addition to Baylor and UTSA, Ramsey mentioned Texas, LSU, Mississippi State, and Texas Tech as programs which have caught his attention.
"Really it's because they're contacting me a lot," Ramsey said. "If you're contacting somebody you really must want them."
Ramsey also attended the Notre Dame-Arizona State game in Dallas, with teammate Abdul Beecham.
While Ramsey was able to take some unofficial visits this fall, the majority of his focus was on Judson's season. The Rockets recently saw their season come to an end in the playoffs, but not before they went four rounds deep in the playoffs and captured 11 wins to only 3 losses.
"It was actually the most fun season I've ever had," Ramsey said. "Like in middle school or high school this is the most fun year I've had. We were all close. Going to the lunchroom every day with team we could talk about anything. The experience of going that far in the playoffs and being able to play Valley teams being able to play teams like Warren it was a good experience. It's going to be good for next year."
Over the course of the season, Ramsey learned several lessons on the field and saw himself grow as both a player and a leader. However, one thing in particular stood out from the rest.
"As the season progressed I think became more…at the beginning of the season I really didn't trust my teammates very much, but towards the end of the season I was able to just focus on my job and not worry about what they're doing. I was able to trust them a lot more."
