We learned yesterday that Joker Phillips and his staff secured a commitment from Ramsey Meyers, a 3-star lineman from Orange Park, Florida. Meyers will come to Kentucky with “SEC size,” a term that has been thrown around lately in regards to some of Phillips’ targets. Meyers stands at 6’3′ and weighs 290 lbs. Meyers became acquainted with Kentucky when he took an unofficial visit a few weeks ago. Following his visit, Meyers had positive things to say and told BleedBlueKentucky.com
“I really liked it and was impressed with the coaching staff. The players and coaches all seemed to interact like a family.”
Ramsey also had positive things to say about the city of Lexington, his future home. “It seemed like a small town, but with nice people. It seemed like a good community.”
Ramsey noted that Kentucky was the first SEC school to offer him a scholarship, which resonated with him when making his decision. Phillips and his staff have seemed to capitalize on this strategy, especially with the prospects that fall into the 3-star category. While some of the bigger SEC schools are sifting through some players that might be more highly rated initially, Kentucky makes inroads and connections with players like Meyers. With some of the setbacks and challenges that come with recruiting at Kentucky, the strategy makes sense and has cultivated some positive results for the Wildcats who may be able to land commitments from players who are on the cusp of gaining more attention from bigger programs.
Meyers already held offers from Alabama State, FAU, WKU and UAB, with late and strong interest coming from Auburn, Arkansas and Florida. Scout.com has Meyers as the 60th ranked OG in the 2013 recruiting class.
Meyers was also recently invited to participate in the US Army Combine and was named an All-Combine performer. Meyers was an honorable mention pick on the All-First Coast Team in Florida, as well as a member of the Class 6-A All-state squad in 2011. Meyers makes the 6th commitment for Kentucky’s 2013 recruiting class.
