USC commit Jalen Ramsey is kicking the college football season off in style, with an unofficial visit right out of the gate. He’s heading to Atlanta to take in Auburn’s season opener against Clemson at the Georgia Dome. Per SEC rules on neutral site games, Ramsey’s visit is unofficial, as he’s required to pay his own way to Atlanta, despite receiving admission to the game from Auburn.
Accompanying Ramsey at the game is a strong group of highly touted recruits from the south, including Reuben Foster, Carl Lawson and Montravius Adams.
The 5-star corner out of Nashville has been committed to USC’s Class of 2013 since mid-July, and is one of two prized recruits from SEC country, along with Jason Hatcher, who hails from Kentucky. Their two teams kicked off their respective senior seasons against each other on August 18th, with Hatcher’s Trinity getting the best of Ramsey’s Brentwood Academy, 52-23. In the first half of the game, Ramsey had a 69-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Max Staver, who has been committed to Florida since mid-June.
Ramsey remains at ‘solid verbal’ status with the Trojans, but as seen with the Auburn visit, there is plenty of interest in him from the SEC schools, including Will Muschamp’s Gators. Gator Country suggested on Thursday that they expect Ramsey to visit Gainesville, alongside Staver, during one of their conference games this fall.
