High school highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Ross wasn't a very high-profile recruit out of the Charter School of Wilmington, but his sub-4.4 40 time made him an intriguing prospect nonetheless. He is the younger brother of Terps running back Brandon Ross, and his brother was able to get his hooks in him early, as Ross was the team's first commit in the class of 2013.

Ross has yet to receive significant playing time on defense in his college career, but he has become a regular special teams contributor. He got some playing time as a corner his freshman year after injuries to Dexter McDougle and Jeramiah Johnson.

Career Highlight:

Knocking down three passes against Indiana on Sept. 27.

Dream Season:

He becomes the team's go-to nickel corner in a breakout season and becomes next in line for a starting spot going into 2016.

2015 Prospectus:

Ross has potential, but the reality is that he is competing with a lot of other guys to get onto the field on defense. He'll likely be a fourth or fifth corner this season unless the injury bug hits the secondary.

Up Next:

This incoming freshman made the Florida-Georgia All-Star Game as a senior.

Standings:

abt295 moves into a tie for second place.
