A SHOCKER AFTER ALL! ROSS TO OSU!!
Ross, the No. 19 rated prep cornerback in the nation on Scout.com, is a tall defensive back at 6-foot-1 yet has excellent hip turn and cover skills, as evidenced by the more than 20 offers he held at midseason of his senior year.
Nebraska, Oregon, Cal and Washington were among the many who extended scholarship offers to the lockdown corner this recruiting season and Ross was for a time verbally committed to the Cornhuskers.
An uber-athlete, Ross played quarterback for the Dons this year and some schools offering him a scholarship also liked him at the wide receiver position, although his future at Oregon State appears to be at cornerback.
The corner spot is one of the few positions where a true freshman can come in and play or start right away, albeit the player in question has to be a special one. Ross (6-1, 185, 4.5) would seem to fit the bill. And like all good corners, he has that swagger to him.
