COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Terry Ramsey made it clear what his mission was at the one-day position camp at Ohio State that he attended last Sunday.

"An offer," the three-star defensive end plainly stated, when asked what he was looking to get out of Sunday's camp.

While an offer is still yet to come for the Clayton, Ohio native, Ramsey believes that he made a positive impression on the Buckeyes coaching staff, particularly defensive line coach Mike Vrabel. It was clear that Vrabel liked the potential he saw in Ramsey, but the OSU assistant would like to see him use it on a more consistent basis.

"Coach Vrabel said to use my speed. He said when I use my speed nobody can stop me," Ramsey said. "So I just gotta keep working."

Ramsey currently holds offers from Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Toledo, and West Virginia, but admitted that the OSU camp was a bit of a wake-up call. At 6-foot-5 and 232 pounds, Ramsey possesses nice size for a high school defensive end, but he would like to get even bigger before heading to the next level.

"I need to build up a little bit and get a little stronger," Ramsey said. "I've seen a couple of guys out here that make me look kinda small. I gotta put on some good weight and get faster."

Of the schools that have offered the Northmount high school product, Ramsey said that he's currently most intrigued by West Virginia, Louisville, and Kentucky. That, however, won't stop him from visiting other schools, before making a decision on where he'll attend at the end of his senior season.

"I like all of my offers, actually, I'm going to check them all out, see what it's like, and see how everything goes," Ramsey said. "I'm going to make my decision before the end of December."

Asked what he's looking for most in a school, Ramsey responded: "academics and the physicality of the team." Given the way that he raved about Ohio State's emphasis in both areas, it's safe to say that he'll certainly entertain an offer from the Buckeyes, should one come.
