UCLA hooked a late gift in the signing period for the 2022 class. Defensive back Kamari Ramsey decommitted from Stanford three days ago, committed to UCLA Tuesday and signed on Wednesday.
The safety from Sierra Canyon High school took his official visit to UCLA back in October, for the Oregon game at the Rose Bowl, while he was a Stanford commit.
Chip Kelly’s class is big on four-star recruits, and Ramsey is the highest rates among them. The 247Sports Composite lists him as the 15th ranked safety in the country. It is also gives Kelly 11 commits from California in this class.
Ramsey had 20 offers throughout the process. Aside from Stanford and UCLA, he also had offers from Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, and most of the Pac-12.
UCLA is quite possibly losing all of its starting defensive backfield from this season. Depth and experience will be a critical issue next season. Devin Kirkwood excelled as a true freshman, but there are not many players with many snaps coming back for 2022. Senior Stephan Blaylock has one year of eligibility left, but has yet to make an announcement on his future plans. It is a position of need, regardless.
Ramsey had 58 tackles including three tackles for a loss in his senior season. He also had one sack, two interceptions and seven passes broken up.
With the pick-up of Ramsey, UCLA’s recruiting class is ranked 40th in the country and fourth in the Pac-12.
