WR switches from Georgia Tech to N.C. State



Jumichael Ramos switched his commitment from Georgia Tech to N.C. State on Monday.

The 6-foot-4 wide receiver from Lovejoy High School made his decision after returning from a last-minute official visit to N.C. State over the weekend. Ramos was the third commitment that Georgia Tech has lost since Thursday. 

“That’s the deal,” Lovejoy coach Al Hughes told the AJC. “All I know is that he came in this morning and he gave me a hat that said N.C. State on it. He was wearing a red N.C. State hat. I’m assuming it must’ve been a good visit.

“Yes, that what he said he wanted to do, to sign with N.C. State. I didn’t get a chance to talk to him in any details. I had things going on with other recruiters. I told him to stop by and see me later. He sounded positive and upbeat about everything.” 

Hughes said he talked to Georgia Tech’s coaches about the news. “I heard from (assistant) Buzz Preston. He just asked me if Jumichael decided to go to N.C. State. I said, ‘Yes, I believe he did.’ And that was the end of it.” 

The Lovejoy coach said it was a challenging situation for both Georgia Tech and Ramos, but commended the Yellow Jackets. It was touchy for both sides because Lovejoy has another player, star tailback Travis Custis, who will sign with Georgia Tech on Wednesday.

“Georgia Tech has been nothing but professional with us,” Hughes said. “I can’t imagine them being any other way. They’ve always been very cordial to us in every way.

“All of these kids are having tough decisions to make. They’re all trying to make it based on good reasons. We try to help them from our end the best we can. I have never and will never tell a kid where he ought to go to school. It’s their lives and their decisions to make.”

Last Thursday, Hillgrove High School defensive back Tolando Cleveland switched from Georgia Tech to Mississippi State. A day later, Aquinas running back Brendan Douglas flipped from the Yellow Jackets to archrival UGA.

Another Georgia Tech commit, QB Damon "Duwop" Mitchell, took a last-minute official visit to Arkansas over the weekend. He’s still listed as committed to the Yellow Jackets.

Georgia Tech also gained a commitment on Sunday, flipping Temple LB commit Paul Davis of Cairo High School.

Georgia Tech has had four de-commitments in its 2013 class, while UGA has had five. Signing day is Wednesday.
