Cornerback Jalen Ramsey out of Nashville, TN is set to announce his commitment on Monday at 11 a.m. PT. The four-star recruit from Brentwood Academy has garnered much interest from a variety of teams, but USC and his home town team, Vanderbuilt, are the highest on his list. Ramsey participated in Nike’s The Opening earlier in July, where he got to spend time with USC commits Max Browne, Michael Hutchings, and others. Last week, USC saw an incredible leap in the esteem of their 2013 recruiting class, with offensive linemen Khaliel Rodgers, Nico Falah and defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes all committing on the same day.
With the line situation figured out, USC could resume its recruitment of skill position players, and that’s where Ramsey comes in. WR Coach Tee Martin has been recruiting Ramsey for a while now, which makes sense because Martin has deep Southern ties from his days playing for the Tennessee Volunteers. His familiar approach and the fact that USC is the sexy team in recruiting right now could lend Ramsey to join the ranks of Troy.
