Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure safety Xavier Ramos, a major part of the Seraphs D-III state…
Education and Winning a BCS Championship
Ramos had 44 tackles to help St. Bonaventure win the CIF-SS Northern Division title and the CIF State D-III Championship Bowl in 2007.
Recruiting had really just begun for Ramos when he received an offer from Army, coached by Oregon native and former NFL great Stan Brock. A couple days after Army offered, Ramos heard from the Ducks. Why did the youngster from L.A. choose Oregon?
"The decision to commit to Oregon for me was that it has an excellent football program," responded Ramos. "I want to see them winning a BCS championship in the future, as well as the education being another key factor."
School has just been let out for the year and now that he's on summer vacation, Ramos has at least one road trip in mind.
"I haven't been up to Eugene yet, but I am planning to make an unofficial (trip) this summer and then an official this upcoming season," Ramos indicated.
Ramos became the second St. Bonaventure prospect in the 2009 class to commit to the Pac-10, joining teammate Patrick Hall, who's headed to USC.
Besides Oregon and Army, Ramos was also being recruited by Arizona.
