Harris Ross has done everything in three weeks to prove he can be a difference-maker.
Now the Pittsburg, Calif., running back is waiting on some more offers. The stats are there and his grades are getting better so things are looking up for Ross, who has offers from Eastern Washington and Sacramento State, as his senior season continues.
The 5-foot-11, 194-pound prospect has rushed for 778 yards and 12 touchdowns on 63 carries this season and major programs are taking notice.
So far, Colorado, Hawaii, Cal, Nevada, UNLV and others have reached out to the Pittsburg coaches and things could pick up even more soon.
"He gained a lot of experience and really started coming along at the end of last season," Pittsburg coach Victor Galli said.
"We had two other really good backs and we had a three-headed monster last year. Now we have a one-headed monster. After sharing the load last year, the load is pretty much his."
Ross, who looked good at the RCS Los Angeles in the spring, needs to keep improving his grades but according to the coaches there things are looking much better in the classroom. That could be the final hurdle before the Pittsburg standout lands more offers.
"He's getting better and better each week," Galli said.
"He's doing a good job. We're pretty good up front and we have some good perimeter blocking but he's making some things happen. He's putting it together. He has good size and good wheels and once he's in the open field he can turn it on and outrun people."
It could be a big week for Ross since his Pittsburg team travels to Berkeley where three-star linebacker Michael Lazarus plays.
