One of the biggest questions to come out of the recent Army All-American game this past weekend was what happened with Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) defensive back Devin Ross. Ross was expected to announce his college choice during the telecast but decided to put off his decision until he was more sure of what he wanted to do.
Ross, 5-10, 165 pounds told us a few weeks ago he had narrowed his choices to Oregon and Arizona. The feeling among the players during the CaliFlorida Bowl practices two weeks ago was that Ross was headed to Oregon. We thought so as well but the talented cornerback said he wants to wait a little longer to be sure he's doing the right thing.
"I thought I knew what I was going to do but a few days before the game, I just started going back and forth," Ross said. "I didn't want announce unless I was a 100% sure and I never felt 100% sure about one school. The last thing I wanted to do was announce for one school and then a week later, have some regrets and want to change my mind.
"So I'm still just thinking about what I want to do and where the best place for me is. Hopefully in a week or so, I'll have an idea and that's when I'll make a commitment."
There have also been rumblings that with Ross' impressive showing all week during the All-American practices, a few more schools are starting to recruit him a little harder.
"Yeah, I've heard from a few schools," Ross said. "I talked to Coach Sark (Sarkisian) at USC earlier today and he said Coach Carroll wanted to talk to me. I still like Oregon and Arizona the best right now since those two have been on me the longest. I'm sure if USC is going to offer me or not. If they do, it will be a tough decision, I mean it already has been but that will just give me even more to think about."
