Where was UGA offensive coordinator Mike Bobo when the Bulldogs were off this past weekend?
He traveled to South Georgia to personally scout UGA’s quarterback of the future, Brice Ramsey, the junior from Camden County High School who committed to the Bulldogs last summer.
“I talked to Coach Bobo like every day on Facebook, and he was down on Friday at the game, which was good because it was one of my best showings of the season,” Ramsey told the AJC.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder led Camden County (7-0), which is ranked No. 1 in the state’s largest classification, to a 56-7 win over Jenkins.
Ramsey and Bobo talked on the phone after the game. “Coach Bobo said I throw the deep ball well, along with the short and intermediate passes. He also said I could run. He told me that he can’t wait to coach me after we win two state championships at Camden County.”
Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis also stopped by Camden County earlier in the week to check on Ramsey. The Gators haven’t given up on their pursuit of the strong-armed quarterback, who visited Florida’s campus for a game last month. Ramsey will also probably attend Florida’s game against Florida State on Nov. 26.
What about UGA? Ramsey has been to a pair of Georgia games, and will be in Athens when the Bulldogs play Auburn on Nov. 12. He and a few buddies also have tickets to see Georgia vs. Florida on Saturday in Jacksonville, which is located around 40 miles south of Brunswick.
“I’m committed to Georgia and their football staff,” Ramsey said. “I’m staying committed. It’s solid and strong. The reason I still talk to Florida is to have a backup plan in case something drastic or crazy happens with Georgia, which I don’t think is going to happen. They’ve been really looking good.”
Ramsey was one of five UGA recruits to commit at Dawg Night prospect camp in July, picking the Bulldogs over Florida, Florida State and Clemson. Recently, wide receiver Tramel Terry of Goose Creek, S.C., backed off his early commitment to UGA and re-opened his recruiting. Ramsey and Terry developed a friendship on the camp circuit, with Terry spending part of last summer at Ramsey’s house to train for football.
What did Ramsey think of Terry’s decision? “I haven’t talked to him about it. I think he was caught up in the moment,” Ramsey said. “I can’t disagree with him but we’ll see what happens down the road. I’m going to stay after him for Georgia for sure.”
