A 6-0, 170-pound athlete out of Cartersville (GA), Ross is listed as a wide receiver by ESPN (unranked), an athlete by 247 Sports, and a cornerback by Rivals (three-star recruit). He holds offers from Washington State, Liberty and Akron among others. Kentucky is listing him as a wide receiver.
The two-sport athlete caught 36 passes for 774 yards and 10 touchdowns this past season. Ross also made 26 tackles, one interception and 12 pass breakups on defense. He was recruited by Kentucky defensive line coach Anwar Stewart.
Ross certainly flashes some nice potential in his highlights as a receiver, and it’s good to know he’s also capable of playing defensive back if pass-catching doesn’t work out in college. He also figures to be a potential special teams contributor on coverage teams.
