Clayton (Ohio) Northmont three-star defensive end Terry Ramsey is aiming to have his decision complete before his senior year, and the 6-foot-5, 235-pound prospect has begun to identify his top schools.
Ramsey reported this week that Louisville, Michigan State and West Virginia compose his current top three. He recently visited the Spartans and took part in their summer camp.
"It was a pretty good experience," Ramsey said of the Michigan State camp. "I had a lot of fun with the coaching staff and liked their intensity. It was a really easy camp for me because no one could really stop me."

Ramsey also has plans to see the other two schools in his top three over the next month. His first stop will be at Louisville.
"We are actually going there this weekend just to check out the campus," Ramsey said. "I just want to see how everything is set up. I have heard a lot of great things about it. I talk to their coaches almost every day so they are showing [strong] interest."
A trip to West Virginia for the Mountaineer's Showcase Camp will take place on July 27th. It will be Ramsey's third time visiting their Morgantown campus.
"The academic support I like a lot," Ramsey said of West Virginia. "I like how the d-line is deep and they have a lot of people, but they rotate everyone in. All their players play at least a couple downs in games."
Ramsey is pretty concrete about a decision coming by the end of the summer. Other schools could enter the race late in the contest. He camped at Ohio State last week and felt he performed well enough to earn offer consideration from the Buckeyes.
"It went fantastic, actually," Ramsey said. "Coach [Mike] Vrabel said I did really good and I have been talking to Coach [Tim] Hinton. He's going to give me some feedback on how I did and we'll see where it goes from there."
Ramsey is rated as the No. 22 weakside defensive end in the country and the No. 39 prospect in the state of Ohio for the 2014 class.
