It appears that is lining up as a very good year in California at the hard to find cornerback position. One of those who fits the bill is David Ross (6-2, 175, 4.5) from Compton (Calif.) Dominguez. Ross already has two offers on the table and it's a good bet that several more will appear before the end of spring.
Dominguez has a tradition of playing its best athlete at quarterback so there is a good chance that Ross will line up behind center this fall.
As a corner the opposition rarely threw his way and yet, he still had three picks as a junior.

"We have a great tradition at the cornerback position here at Compton," Dominguez coach Willie Donerson said. "Justin Wyatt who played at USC, played here at Dominguez."
"So did Tim Mixon of Cal and Anthony Wheat-Brown play corner here," Donerson said. "David is right there with all the great ones we have ever had."
"We get them ready for the next level," Donerson said. "All we run is man-to-man."
"We like to bump and run and play physical and aggressive," Donerson said. "They already play a style that many D-I schools run."
"David does a pretty good job tackling," Donerson said. "But he's even going to do better. We think he's going to gain 10 to 15 pounds before the season rolls around."
Ross has two offers on the table from Arizona and Oregon. USC, Oregon State, Washington, Washing ton State and Arizona State are all taking a long look and could offer soon.
Ross has been invited to USC's junior day and he's expected to show up.
Ross helped Dominguez to a 13-1 record and the CIF Section II Championship. Their lone loss was only by two points at the hands of Los Angeles City Section Champs, Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw.
