Tampa offensive tackle Trent Ramsey picks Cal over Mississippi State and Virginia
Huge Early Signing Day pickup.
Cal has landed the commitment of Tampa offensive tackle Trent Ramsey. Ramsey officially made his commitment to the Golden Bears on National Signing Day, picking Cal over the Mississippi State Cowboys and the Virginia Cavaliers.
Ramsey is ranked 457th nationally by 247Sports Composite, the 38th best offensive tackle and the 56th best recruiting prospect in Florida. Before playing in Tampa, Ramsey played high school football in Arizona at Higley, where he helped protect current Cal quarterback Kai Milner (and former Cal quarterback Spencer Brasch).
Here is a link to his senior Hudl tape. More from SGBear:
Ramsey is a self-described 6’5” 270 pound high-school senior offensive tackle who played for Carrollwood Day High School in Tampa FL. His mid-year senior highlight reel is here on Hudl. His junior highlights are here.
Trent scores an A with his handwork, often taking down lesser opponents using only his hands. He has a violent punch and uses it to control his opponents without letting them access to his body. He literally has some of the best handwork that I’ve seen in a recruit in a while. He’s also got a nasty streak to him as he has no problem piling on top of a defeated opponent. He has great grades and west-coast roots since he’s originally from Arizona.
However, arm strength won’t be enough at the next level and he’ll need to some coaching up to add hip-flip and better footwork to gain leverage/power on P12 defensive linemen. While he has the height and arm length to be a P12 tackle, his footwork, quickness, and flexibility need improving as he is a bit ponderous to deal with edge rushers. However, I’m not worried as McClure and the S&C crew have done pretty good jobs of developing low 3-star guys into a perfectly serviceable o-line.
This gives Cal three offensive line commits in this class, with Ramsey joining Jackson Brown and Sioape Vatikani (athlete Nick Morrow has played offensive line but is projected as a tight end at Cal).
Welcome to Cal Trent!
Florida Man exercises good judgment and intelligence. Welcome!
Huge signing (no pun intended) O line to me is the most important position on the field. Welcome Trent!
