Brice Ramsey, UGA’s QB of the future, would’ve liked to have had a better performance to end his high school career. Then again, the Camden County product wasn’t going to beat himself too much after Friday’s Under Armour All-America game.

It was, after all, an all-star game, where kids are thrown together for only a few days. In these games, the offenses are always at a disadvantage, and everything is pretty unorganized. Think of it on the same level of a “pickup” basketball game.
Ramsey completed 5 of 16 passes with three interceptions for 64 yards in the White team’s 16-3 loss to the Black.
“It was tough,” Ramsey said. “You come out there and try to get everyone on the same page. And when everyone is not on the same page, it makes for chaos. That was what kind of happened tonight. But it was a good experience and a lot of fun.”
After the game, rather than taking it hard, Ramsey was focusing on leaving Tropicana Field to go directly to UGA. Ramsey will be one of 13 recruits enrolling early with the Bulldogs, beginning college classes on Monday.
“I can’t wait,” Ramsey said. “It’s what I signed up to do. I’m going to follow through with it — just get in the classroom, get in the playbook and do everything I can to help the team.”
Here’s how the other nine Georgia players did in the all-star game:
- Montravius Adams, DT, Dooly County: It was a rough week — and rough month — for the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect by 247sports. Adams suffered a stress fracture of his ankle in the opening practice, and did not play again. Adams said the deal with his ankle was related to being “cut blocked” in the loss to ECI for the Class A state championship. Adams left Friday’s game to go directly on his first official visit, with Florida.
- Vonn Bell, DB, Ridgeland: He had three tackles, 0.5 tackles for loss, and three pass breakups. The 5-star safety will take official visits this month to his three finalists — rumored frontrunner Alabama, childhood favorite Tennessee and Ohio State.
- Kelsey Griffin, DT, Mill Creek: The soft-spoken Griffin had two tackles, including 0.5 for loss. He is committed to South Carolina and will visit the Gamecocks in two weeks.
- Trey Johnson, LB, Central Gwinnett: He committed to Ohio State over Florida and Tennessee at halftime. Johnson finished with three tackles, one tackle for loss, and one QB hurry.
- Alvin Kamara, RB, Norcross: The AJC’s Mr. Georgia Football was the game’s leading rusher, carrying 8 times for 44 yards, including an electrifying 28-yard run. Kamara will determine later this week which one of his co-leaders, Alabama or UGA, he will reward with his final official visit on Feb. 2.
- Carl Lawson, DE, Milton: After Nkemdiche, nobody had a better week in practices than Lawson, who finished with one QB hurry in the game. Lawson is committed to Auburn but will set visits later this week to Clemson, Ole Miss, and Tennessee — and maybe UNC and USC.
- Robert Nkemdiche, DE, Grayson: After dominating practices all week, the nation’s undisputed No. 1 prospect had one tackle and one QB hurry in the game. He was followed around by two or three blockers on every play. “It was frustrating every time,” Nkemdiche said. “I thought it was going to be an all-star game and they were going to let me go one-on-one (against offensive line), but that was a dream. They were double-teamming me, and triple-teamming … I tried to do what I could do, tried to make as many plays as I could to win a football game. We won. That’s all that matters.”
- Shaq Wiggins, DB, Sandy Creek: Wiggins had two pass breakups. He is committed to UGA but South Carolina presents a major threat.
