Evidently Wednesday was Pretty Great Video Day at Mizzou.
That was a fun distraction from As the Ramey Turns. There was another development.
Louisville plans to reschedule an in-home visit with Class of 2018 point guard Courtney Ramey after a scheduling conflict forced Wednesday’s visit to be postponed. [...]
In a text message to Courier Journal, [Terrell] Ramey said he and his son still hope to reschedule a meeting with Louisville’s coaches in the near future.
That meeting would have to be a campus visit to Louisville, because Thursday begins a three-month quiet period on the NCAA’s recruiting calendar for Division I basketball.
With numerous questions and assumptions going on, my sons in home visit today with Louisville unfortunatly had to be cancelled because of a scheduling conflict with him flying out today for the @iversonclassic all star game in Philly.— Terrell Ramey (@Rameybasketball) April 18, 2018
My son&myself decided this time around 2 b very patient& diligent throughout this process. I apologies if it hasn't been courteous 2 media & fans but this is what my son wants & I support it. This is y we have ignored 99% of ?s If u hear something its probably not true or from us— Terrell Ramey (@Rameybasketball) April 18, 2018
We discussed this a bit on my weekly Closers appearance. If this means anything, it’s that Ramey’s recruitment will take even longer.
Oy. With my Mizzou hat on, this is very frustrating, as the Tigers’ entire 2018 recruiting plan hinges on where the Webster Groves blue-chipper goes. With the hat off, though, I get it. The moment an athlete signs his LOI (if he indeed signs one), his freedom is over. He’s bound to that school. When you’re as in-demand as Ramey is, it only makes sense to take your time. So on we go.
Yesterday at Rock M
- Mizzou’s Michael Plassmeyer tweaked his curveball and raised his draft stock pretty significantly this past offseason.
- PowerMizzou talked to big Mizzou signee Javon Foster and his high school coach about his journey from big basketball player to sleeper lineman.
- Hey, Drew!
- More confident about Mizzou’s ability to qualify for the SEC Softball Tournament in a few weeks? Then go ahead and buy your tickets! And then hope the Tigers take at least one game from No. 12 South Carolina in Columbia East this weekend!
- Welp, Mizzou’s tennis season is over following a quick exit against Arkansas in the SEC Tournament. The Tigers finished 13-3 in non-conference play ... and 0-14 against SEC foes. Ouch.
- Mizzou executive associate athletic director Ryan Alpert is following another former Mizzou official, new FAU AD Brian White, to Boca Raton.
