Georgia Tech picked up commitment No. 14 on late Friday night.
After finishing his game for Lovejoy High School, wide receiver Jumichael Ramos committed to Georgia Tech over football scholarship offers from Cincinnati, South Florida and Middle Tennessee State.
“Well, I just played a good game tonight (Friday), and I just felt like Georgia Tech would be the best fit for me,” Ramos told the AJC.
Why is Georgia Tech the best fit? “I know I can block, and I can make big plays when needed. I feel like that’s what they do with wide receivers in their offensive scheme, and I’m a good fit for that.”
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Ramos is the second Lovejoy senior to commit to Georgia Tech, following in the footsteps of 4-star tailback Travis Custis. Ramos is a raw and undeveloped football prospect with a high ceiling of potential. He’s an established star in basketball, where he played every position but point guard for Lovejoy last year while averaging 18 points.
“He’s one of our deep threats, and can stretch the defense,” Lovejoy coach Al Hughes said. “First of all, he’s a basketball guy, and he’s got lots of ups (30-inch vertical). He can control his body in the air just like a basketball player. He can put himself in a position to make the catch, and he knows how to use his body just like you would in basketball to block somebody out. He’s a tremendous talent.”
Ramos said he committed to Georgia Tech assistant Buzz Preston on Friday night, and will talk to coach Paul Johnson sometime this weekend.
