UGA-bound QB Brice Ramsey shakes off three interceptions, ready for college

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.

Nobody is a bigger fan of Brice Ramsey than me. But that was a very disappointing performance with the three picks. I don’t know what the heck he was thinking on two of them. He will never move in front of Parker Welch on our depth chart. Brice needs to play kicker and call it a day.

We must not have watched the same game. I saw a kid with a very strong arm who had one touchdown dropped by his teammates and many other drops. Yes he did throw some picks, but he had the best arm of any quarterback out there.

Everybody always makes excuses for Brice and Camden County, and I’m sick of it. Son, you’re in big boy football now in the SEC, and you and your momma are going to have to deal with it. Brice Ramsey hasn’t ever proven anything except that he can dominate 7 on 7. That’s it. Camden County is so overrated and they got that beatdown from NHS!!!!!!!!!!!

I watched the game,….wondered why Ramsey was on the field. He was overmatched,…and for the “strong” arm,…..really it’s just slightly above average. Footwork was questionable at best,…didn’t move well in the pocket,….bailed out to quickly,…and decision making on several throws was very poor.

watched the game and thought Ramsey was the best qb there. he definitely had the strongest the arm of all the qb’s. was the only qb that got off a deep pass and had at least 6-8 balls hit the receivers directily in the hands only to have them drop the ball. put great touch on the deep ball. the picks were bad but he was just trying to get something going one pick was playcalling that screen pass was a horrible idea his o line let them go directly to him not even rubbing the d linemen. Kamara was by far the best running back out there.

B Ramsey will enjoy the UGA for its atmosphere and women, dont he will ever make it to the top.

A Murray needs to take his shot at the nfl right now after watching so many top notch QB’s in bowl games with just one or two years till they declare. I just dont see any nfl team drafting A Murray high enough for a bonus or guaranteed contract. Jump now even though your chances are very low. One thing for sure, you gave your all in every game and for that I am appreciative.

Time for H Mason and why the hell we have no other top QB’s on the way beats me.

Funny how people see the same game with different perspectives of a player….take off those colored glasses. Truth…it was an all star game with a QB running basic plays and throwing to receivers that they had hardly any familiarity with….therefore the INTs and apprearance. Nothing you saw in a HS game…for the most part….other than the raw talent….will have anything to do with how the players perform on their respective college teams. Ramsey is obviously a very talented QB and he will be a good QB in college if he learns the Georgia system and executes it to the coaches expectations. He has the talent to do that….probably very well. He is a very intelligent young man. He will also have the opportunity to play in a system at Georgia that is better suited to his skills than the one he ran in HS. That will also enhance his development as a QB. And truth is, he does not have a lot ahead of him after Murray and Mason leaves…and he will have a couple of years to learn from both of them before he has to take over the QB role for Georgia. But I can tell you this, he is already better than LeMay…and that is a good thing for Georgia.

By the way…..you guys take notice of the defensive and athletic skills of one….Vernon Hargreaves last night. Tony Dundy was quited before and after the came as saying the kid is “special” and he stood out big time in the game….MVP for the black team that won. He covered Treadwell like the dew, including a great knock out of the ball when Treadwell thought he had caught a TD on him. He is a big time shut down corner and could start next year, which would allow Muschamp to move the multi talented Louchez Purifoy to WR next year.

Ramsey will red shirt this year and gt coached up by Bobo. Two of his interceptions were caused by receivers running the wrong route. As for Adams, he was illegally double team chop blocked high from the front and from the side low around the knees and a penalty was called for a CHOP block – not a cut block. It appeared to be an intentional dirty play and Adams limped off the field to only return briefly early in the 2nd half. They should have kicked the guy that went at his knees out of the game. Don’t care where V. Bell goes ’cause Trey Matthews is better. Kamara looks like he is ready to play this year – no red shirt unless he goes to Bummer where they are 4 deep already.

Rather than sign on the “dotted line ” early the college coaches ..should not be allowed to visit a recruit until his junior year….. way to much pressure put on this 15 year olds to commit early – and the recruits should not be harassed continually after they commit…… but they will be.

Much like warm blooded mammals hibernate – R E P T I L E S ruminate (sleep in winter months) and evidently the GATORS slept through the Sugar Bowl. Talk about BAD pass defense – what happened? Reminds me of the blow out of UGA by the Game Crocks. Louisville had a simple plan but the REPTILES never adjusted their defense to stop the pass. They were out coached by Charlie Strong and were physically dominated on the field despite a couple or three cheap shots helmet to helmet Louisville did not back down. That is the influence of Charlie Strong. Guess now Floria wishes they had kept Charlie Strong and got rid of Suburban Meyer the 1st time he quit.

Murray will likely turn pro but he is giving returning serious consideration… that would be worth at least two wins based on his leadership, talent, and experience. Mason and LeMay are still talented but unproven on the battle ground.

I am starting to believe that the 17 point spread in Vegas on the ND/Bummer game will shrink to about 10 points by game time – due to the fact that Bummer is human this year with one loss and two more close calls. ND had a bunch of close calls themselves – would like to see Oregon against either o these teams.

After watching Brice it is clear that CMR needs to take this time before signing day to flip one more qb recruit. Mabe he can get Shane Morris to change his commitment and flip to UGA
I do not approve of Ramseys play yesterday and getting one more qb would hedge our bets.
Kamara looked good and kmdechie looked like more of a diva than Aretha Franklin.

Bobo picks this kid Ramsey over ANTHONY JENNINGS (LSU), NICK MARSHALL (TEXAS), JOSHUA DOBBS (ARIZONA),JONATHAN MCCRARY (VANDY), and DESHAUN WATSON (CLEMSON). All Georgia QB(s) and all leaving the State. I wonder what Bobo is thinking? I wonder what it could be? What is the one overriding factor that, in Bobo’s eyes, sets Ramsey apart from the others? that makes him “superior” to the others. I THINK WE ALL KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT ONE, DON”T WE DAWG FANS? What a program. Each and every one of you should be ashamed. 33 years. You deserve it.

Any UGA fan as well as those on here who are pretending to be UGA fans should realise that Brice Ramsey was recruited for his potential which is off the charts.

The kid played in a run heavy offense. Yes, he has alot to learn. Bobo will mold Ramsey into another Aaron Murray- Mathew Stafford type prospect.

The future is bright. Go Dawgs!!!

Gosh. Did you see how SLOW Ramsey was? Apparently Booboo told Anthony Jennings and Nick Marshall, “Fellas. Y’all are just too damn fast in the 40. We’re not looking for a 4.5 guy. We need a 5.4 guy, and we feel like we’ve found that in Ramsey. He runs just like me. Did you guys know that in my entire career at UGA, I NEVER ran for a 1st down. We feel like Ramsey brings that kind of production to the table. We think he’s in a position to tie that record. Anyway, Good luck to you at Texas and LSU.”

Talking about bailing out of the pocket and throwing it up for grabs, wait to you see y’all’s next Joe Cox, your next great hope. Hudson Mason. Saw the kid at Lassiter. He melts like the Wicked Witch of the East at the mere mention of pressure. Are Richt and Booboo even aware of the freakish nature of todays athletes on defense? Especially in the SEC? Once again, they fail to recognize and adjust in a timely manner, reflected primarily in their evaluation and recruitment of Quarterbacks and Offensive linemen. They’re are going to find out real quick what time it is when they venture up to the “Valley” with this kid Mason.Should mark the beginning of the end for this Richt/Bobo combination.

I thought your expertise was OL. QBs are hard to predict. Johnny Manziel won the Heisman as a RS freshman. But, look where he was rated coming out of HS. Three of the greatest QBs in college football over the last 10 years are Tim Tebow, Vince Young, and Matt Lienart. All three won NCs and two won Heismans. How many games did they start in the NFL this year? The Georgia coaches are high on Ramsey for valid reasons. I would put more stock in their evaluations than yours.

I hope the comments on here that are negative about Brice Ramsey are not Dawg fans and I hope the criticism are not coming from alumni. This kid was from a run dominate Offense. His coach is noted for running the ball not developing Quarterback who can throw the ball. The reason Ramsey did so good at camps is because of his potential. He does have a very strong arm but didn’t have to learn how to call audibles because his coach expected 90% of the plays to be run plays. He is tall and has a strong arm. That is all needed . There was no question that he was going to Red Shirt for 2013. My guess is Murray will come back and prove he can take it all the way . With an Offense that could easily be ranked #1 in the Nation I don’t think Murray passes that up. Mason will get a lot of 4TH quarter playing time unless Murray is hurt and then Mason will start.
My guess is Ramsey will Red Shirt in 2013 and be Mason’s back up in 2014. Ramsey will be ready by 2015.
