Michigan State football struck gold by landing four-star Alabama-based offensive lineman Stanton Ramil.

Going into SEC country and poaching one of the top recruits in the country is not an easy task, but Michigan State football coach Mel Tucker did just that when he swiped Stanton Ramil from right under Nick Saban’s nose.

The four-star offensive tackle is one of the highest-rated at the position in program history and he’s likely to come in and compete for a job on the two-deep immediately.

There’s no doubt about it: Ramil is very good.

And people are starting to really take note. In fact, at the Under Armour All-American Game practices this week, Ramil has been turning heads. He has been the subject of plenty of praise from national recruiting experts, including Andrew Ivins and Brian Dohn of 247Sports.

They both did write-ups about which players had been standing out at practices leading up to the game and Ramil was on both of their lists.

Here’s what Ivins had to say about Ramil:

The defensive lines might have dominated Saturday’s session for the most part, but Alabama signee Miles McVay, FSU signee Lucas Simmons, Michigan signee Amir Herring and Michigan State signee Stanton Ramil all had their moments during 1-on-1s.

He didn’t go into a ton of detail, but this echoed what Dohn had to say earlier in the week about the four-star MSU signee.

Alabaster (Ala.) Thompson offensive tackle and Michigan State signee Stanton Ramil stands out because of his size at 6-foot-7, 310 pounds, but also with the way he moves. His length and body control was a bit of a surprise given his size. What really stood out was the way he moved in space. On a backside pass play in Saturday’s practice, he was able to get out and lead in the open field and he moved free and easy running 20 to 30 yards down the field. He is the No. 19 offensive tackle in the class, and gives Spartans offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic a new base to work on and develop.

Dohn only mentioned 10 guys that stood out to him in his article and Ramil was one of them along with a handful of five-star talents.

It looks like Tucker and Chris Kapilovic struck gold here as Ramil could be a guy who starts early on and builds a nice NFL resume for himself in the green and white.
