The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Ratliff also had offers from North Carolina, N.C. State and Wofford. He is rated as a 3-star and the state’s No. 28 overall prospect, along with the nation’s No. 76 athlete.
“I want to win a championship,” Ratliffe told 247sports.com’s Ryan Bartow. “I want to make money. I want to be a Yellow Jacket.”
This past season as a junior, Ratliff scored 52 total touchdowns, while rushing for 2,074 yards and passing for 1,838 yards in leading Scotland High School to an appearance in the Class AAAA state championship game.
