High School Highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

One of a pair of brothers on Maryland’s roster, the younger Ross opted to follow his big brother (who’s probably watching him) to College Park. In addition to Brandon, the Rosses have family in the area and the prospect of coming to a competitive program that seemed focused on bringing in speedy, athletic players made Maryland a good fit. He ended up as the Terps' first commitment of the cycle, verballing in January.

Profiling the entire team

Ross was pressed into duty as a true freshman in 2013 after injuries to Dexter McDougle and Jeremiah Johnson, playing in every except the opener against FIU. Ross played mostly on special teams, and recorded multi-tackle games against Old Dominion and UConn.

Nickname:

"The Boss"

Career Highlight:

Two solo tackles against UConn.

Dream Season:

After being thrust into unexpected action as a freshman, Ross gets to play a dual role seeing snaps as a nickel or dime back and earning a spot on special teams.

2014 Prospectus:

Due to the injuries to Jeremiah Johnson and Dexter McDougle, Ross got some unexpected playing time as a freshman, seeing action in twelve of the Terrapins’ thirteen games. Ross found himself third on the spring depth chart at cornerback behind William Likely and Michael Washington due to his injury, and is expected to compete for playing time this season if he can stay healthy.

Ross showed some promise last season and certainly has speed to burn. If he has improved his mechanics and is healthy, he certainly could see the field as a nickel back or on the boundary, backing up Maryland's starters. Ross should also play a big role on special teams, and is one of many possibilities at returner for the Terps.

Up Next:

Our next player was a star quarterback at a local high school powerhouse who ended up transferring to Maryland after a head coaching change at his old school.
