"I really liked the experience I had down there today," Ripley said. "There is a certain amount of camaraderie that you don't get in most places. They really seem like family."
Ripley enjoyed a solid junior season for the Braves as he excelled on both sides of the ball. We believe though, that the Cardinals are keeping tabs on Ripley for his work at DT.
"I talked to the Defenisve Line Coach (Nick Siatras)," Ripley said. "And I talked to the Strength and Conditioning Coach (Dave Feeley), he is fun and someone that I believe I would get a lot of excellent work from."
After meeting the coaches, Ripley also had a chance to watch some practice.
"The practice was great to see," Ripley said. "The way they practice, I really like. They work fast, and they work as a team, but it is also broke down into individual instruction too so you get to learn better than just lining up and hitting each other."
