ATHENS, Ga. — Brice Ramsey will finish his playing career at Georgia, his mother, Yolanda Ramsey, told Dawgs247 on Thursday.

“Brice has committed to finishing out his time at the University of Georgia,” Yolanda Ramsey said. “After visiting and taking time with other schools, he could not get past the part of where he is heart was and that is at UGA at the end of the day.”

Ramsey said before spring practice that he would pursue opportunities to play immediately elsewhere as a graduate transfer for his final season, though he still helped out during spring practices in a shirt instead of a practice jersey.

Georgia was “trying to recruit Brice,” to stay, coach Kirby Smart said at Southeastern Conference spring meetings Tuesday. Ramsey was the third-string quarterback and top punter for Georgia last season, and provides needed depth at the quarterback position. Georgia will now have three scholarship quarterbacks, including sophomore Jacob Eason and freshman Jake Fromm, for the 2017 season.

“(It’s) really a great thing to graduate from Georgia and be part of a great program,” Smart said Tuesday. “Hey, we’ve got two quarterbacks. He’s a guy that can come in and compete first, second or third and he’s got great experience.”
