Making more moves for the 2022-23 season, Arizona Basketball has added another key transfer in Texas guard, Courtney Ramey.
It was just days ago that things looked a little bit bleak for Arizona Basketball on the recruiting trail for next season. Well, fast forward to now, and the Wildcats have added another key transfer in Texas guard, Courtney Ramey.
Making news on Friday afternoon, Ramey officially committed to the Wildcats, this despite reportedly drawing interest from Duke, Houston, West Virginia, Purdue, and Louisville among others.
Coming into this off-season, it was clear that Arizona needed more veteran experience and depth, particularly at guard, and luckily for us, Ramey’s addition offers Arizona just that as Tommy Lloyd continues to build out the roster.
The commitment of Ramey also comes on the heels of the Wildcats adding Campbell transfer Cedric Henderson for 2022-23 as well.
A proven, reliable, and experienced guard, Courtney Ramey should be an adequate addition to the backcourt for Arizona Basketball.
Coming to Tucson as a graduate transfer, much like how Justin Kier was for the Cats this past season, look for Courtney to have a similar impact and an even larger role.
A 6-foot-3 guard, Ramey will likely start alongside Kerr Kriisa in the backcourt, and his presence will be welcomed from day one as the Wildcats will then be able to bring Adama Bal off the bench as he continues to develop.
Courtney brings veteran experience having played in 128 collegiate basketball games at Texas while starting in 106 games for the Longhorns. He also finishes his time in Texas averaging 10.0 points, 2.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game.
His addition will also give the Cats another solid shooter. At Texas, Ramey shot a career 36.5 percent from three, connecting on 194 of 532 attempts.
Overall, Arizona should now be in a much better position for next season, and the recent additions make the Wildcats a bit more competitive.
