When he first arrived in Reno, Wolf Pack head basketball coach Eric Musselman has preached playing a up-tempo, fast paced style of basketball and he may have found the point guard to run his system.
On Monday, Coach Musselman and the Wolf Pack received a commitment from point guard Devearl Ramsey who is listed as a four-star recruit and is the 106th ranked prospect in the 2016 recruiting class according to Rivals.com. Ramsey is a 5-foot-11 point guard from Chatsworth, California and is considered one of the top point guards in the nation and received offers from Power 5 schools like California, USC, Arizona State, Auburn, Florida State, and NC State but decided on playing for Coach Musselman and the Wolf Pack.
In his junior year at Sierra Canyon High School, Ramsey averaged 13.4 points, 4.3 assists, 3.6 steals and 3.1 rebounds. He also shot 48 percent from the field and 36 percent from the three point line while leading his school to a 26-4 record, a California state championship and a top 20 national ranking. Even though he does not have ideal size for a point guard, Ramsey is considered a top recruit for his good shooting stroke, plays plus defense, and is an great athlete.
Ramsey is the third commitment for Nevada's 2016 recruiting class along with power forward Kenneth Wooten and top junior college recruit Alando Cook. Ramsey is the fifth player ranked by either ESPN.com's top 150, Scout.com or Rivals.com to sign with the Wolf Pack as he joins Luke Babbit, Olek Czyz, marqueze Coleman and Mark MacLaughlin as top prospects to sign with the Wolf Pack.
