A few weeks ago, Compton (Calif.) Dominguez defensive back David Ross caused quite a stir when following his official visit to Nebraska, called himself a soft commitment. After visiting Colorado this past weekend, does Ross still have the Huskers in the lead?
Ross, 6-2, 170 pounds is one of the premier defensive backs in the West region with the ability to play cornerback or safety in college. He has excellent size and is a tough, physical player who can run and hit.
"Colorado felt like home," Ross said. "There are so many California players there and even some of the coaches are from the West Coast so it really felt like a home away from home.
"I got out there Saturday morning and then headed over to the stadium. Me, Anthony (Boyles) and Api (Apaita Tuihalamaka) all flew in together and then met up with the other recruits right before the game. Like everyone else said, the game day atmosphere is great and I loved the fans and the overall excitement level of game day.
"I loved the cold weather, the snow and enjoyed meeting and hanging out with the all the guys on the team. It felt like one big family there and they really make you feel like part of the team right when you get there.
"Boulder is a great place and we all had a good time going out Saturday night. On Sunday, we toured the campus, met with the coaches, the usual things you do on a visit. Overall, my trip was great but I would still have to put Nebraska on top.
"Don't get me wrong, I loved Colorado and I'm definitely thinking a lot about them but I don't know if anyone will be able to hang with Nebraska. Oregon is right there too and I just set my visit to Oregon for (Dec. 1). I'm going with Brandon (Johnson) but like I said, Nebraska is way up there and it's going to be very tough for anyone to beat them out."
