Jalen Ramsey is headed back to L.A.

Jalen Ramsey is on his way back west, but don't read too much into that.

There had been speculation that the defensive back from Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy might commit on his second trip to Southern California's campus.

However, Ramsey said that won't likely be the case. Yet he's certainly interested.

"I'm very serious about them!" Ramsey stated in a text message to ESPN. "They are a top school."

Ramsey, ranked No. 129 in the ESPN 150, is scheduled to be in Los Angeles on Monday.

If Ramsey commits and signs with Southern Cal, it surely wouldn't sit well with Tennessee fans. Seeing one of the top prospects in the state sign with the Trojans and former Vols' head coach Lane Kiffin could create quite a stir.
