With the spring signing period already underway, the recruitment of St. Louis (Miss.) Webster Groves point guard Courtney Ramey is heating up, with the Texas Longhorns among three schools with scheduled in-home visits this week, according to multiple reports.
Head coach Shaka Smart and his staff will visit with Ramey and his family on Monday evening, followed by the Missouri staff on Tuesday, and the Lousiville staff on Wednesday.
For those tuned into Ramey’s recruitment, the presence of the Cardinals is a bit surprising — new head coach Chris Mack publicly mentioned that his staff wasn’t recruiting Ramey. Now Louisville is recruiting Ramey again, apparently. The 6’3, 170-pounder committed to the Cardinals in February of 2017 and then re-opened his recruitment when the FBI scandal broke.
With the departures of two guards and the uncertainty surrounding the statuses of Kerwin Roach II and Andrew Jones next season for the Longhorns elevated the need for Ramey. Now able to offer more playing time, the increased opportunity for Ramey at Texas next season likely plays in favor of the Horns.
Along with Missouri and now Louisville, Oklahoma State is probably also a still a contender for Ramey after hosting him on an official visit. There’s no public timetable for Ramey to give his commitment.
A consensus four-star prospect, the point guard is ranked as the nation’s No. 40 player, the No. 9 point guard, and the No. 1 player in Missouri, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
