Jalen Ramsey doesn’t like Jimbo Fisher, Tim Brewster using FSU DBs to help A&M recruit

One of Jimbo Fisher’s longtime assistants is using Florida State’s NFL success to draw defensive back prospects to Texas A&M – and that isn’t sitting well with a former Seminoles star defensive back.

New Aggies tight ends coach Tim Brewster posted a “DB Alert” on Twitter on Monday night, showing that eight defensive backs to play for Fisher at Florida State earned an average of $8.4 million in the NFL.

Perhaps the most prominent of those defensive backs, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, took exception to that post. As everyone familiar with the outspoken All-Pro corner might have expected, Ramsey didn’t take long to fire back on Twitter.

Ramsey has a point: Fisher never has been a defensive position coach. (Brewster served as tight ends coach with Florida State.) The secondary coach during the Seminoles’ national championship season of 2013, Jeremy Pruitt, is now the coach at Tennessee. Pruitt’s successor, Charles Kelly, now works on the Vols’ staff.

It’s unclear how, if at all, the Brewster-Ramsey online exchange will influence recruits. But it’s further evidence that Fisher won’t necessarily find it automatic to duplicate his Florida State success in College Station.
