Initial scouting report
“Ringo is a height, weight and speed dream for NFL coaching. He displays easy speed to stay in-phase up the boundary. The Washington native has been exposed to a mixture of man and zone coverage. As a high-waisted individual, it can sometimes lead to slower transition across the field. Ringo is willing to play downhill and make plays in the backfield. The physical traits to be a man cover cornerback in the NFL are present.” — CBS Sports NFL Draft analyst Josh Edwards
