O.J. Ross is one of the premier wide receiver prospects from the Sunshine State. Ross, 5-10 and 175 pounds, is a four-star recruit from Daytona Beach Mainland High School. He and his teammates got off to a rough start last Friday, losing to Miami Central 34-3.
"We couldn't complete any passes because our quarterback had no time," Ross said. "I had two screens for 13 yards. It was a tough night. We play Treasure Coast this weekend at our place. I am looking forward to playing these guys."
In terms of recruiting Ross has set up one visit and that's to Purdue (10-17). There are several other programs hoping to get him on campus.
"I am also considering North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Texas Tech. Right now I would say Purdue and North Carolina stand out. I love the offenses at Purdue and North Carolina. And I have always liked UNC since I was a kid.
"I hope to make a decision pretty soon. It was going to be on Signing Day. I want to see how the visit goes to Purdue but I also want to definitely make a trip to Chapel Hill."
