Ronald Ramon, a shifty 6'0'' 175 pound combo guard from All Hallows High School in the Bronx, is a player out of the class of 2004 who has generated some interest from some high major programs.
Ramon has heard early on from St. John's, Seton Hall, Georgetown, NC State, Providence, and George Mason, among others. Providence and George Mason have offered scholarships, according to his coach, John Carey.
Ramon, a native of the Dominican Republic, is a crafty guard who can stroke the deep ball with regularity. While not explosively quick, he moves pretty well without the ball and knows how to free himself up for the shot. Ronald is solid off the dribble. If he were a running back, he would be the type that makes opponents miss; his game is characterized more by craftiness than sheer quickness.
All Hallows is a program that last year featured four Division I prospects in their senior class: guards Ricky Soliver and Marvin McCullough, who have moved on to Iona and have made the transition to the college level seamlessly, and big forward Kiril Wachsmann has also joined his teammates in New Rochelle. Point guard Bobby Santiago, also a member of Carey's super class of 2002, has been a very pleasant surprise for Stony Brook, and has handled the point with aplomb as a first year player for Coach Nick Macarchuk.
The long and the short of it: Coach Carey's players are well prepared for the next level of play with the instruction they get in his program.
Ramon will participate in the Nike All-America Camp this up coming summer.
