Top CB Devin Ross Taking Visits; Still Wide Open
With the football season fast approaching and schools gearing up for fall practice, most kids are taking this time to relax and mentally prepare for the work ahead. However, Ross will take a little trip this weekend. "On Thursday I'm going up to Washington, then I'll visit Oregon and Oregon State," he said. "All of them have offered. So far Nebraska is the only school I've set up an official visit for, and that is for Sept. 2. I'm trying to get one set up with Oklahoma but it's not set."
Michigan recently jumped into the picture are Michigan defensive backs coach Ron English observed Ross at a recent combine. An offer shortly followed the event and the talented player recently spoke with English. "He's recruiting me for corner," Ross said. "He said they need me to come in and compete for playing time right away. I'm really interested in Michigan, for sure."
Rancho Cucamonga is near Pomona, the former stomping grounds of the Michigan defensive backs coach. A rather small community, it isn't surprising that people from the same area know each other. Such is the case with the Ross's and the English family. "My dad went to school with Coach English's wife," Ross said. "We didn't know that until we started talking to them me being recruited by Michigan. It's pretty cool."
Family ties aside, there is one lurking recruiting Goliath that may decide the fate of the five-star Ross. USC, also in attendance at the recent combine, had yet to offer Ross. "If USC were to offer it would be hard to turn them down," he said. "But I think I am going to take my time and really look at all the schools to make sure I make the right decision."
Ross is listed at 5-foot-11, 180-pounds but said he is growing. "I'm pretty close to 6-foot now," he said.
