Ross Has Success On East Coast

Terrance Ross made the move to Montrose Christian to help him improve his academics and basketball skills. Thus far the transfer has been a success.

Terrance Ross made a big decision prior to his junior season. The 6-foot-6 wing switched coasts and went from attending Portland (Ore.) Jefferson to Rockville (Md.) Montrose Christian.

Despite leaving family, friends and a defending state title team, Ross said the move has been for the best.

"At first it was hard getting situated and used to the time, but after a while it became pretty easy," Ross told "I just know that it was a better situation for me for academics and basketball."

On the court Ross is certainly succeeding. Ross, who is known as a high-level athlete with a solid jump shot form long range, is putting up 15 points and six rebounds per game for Montrose.

"So far the season has been good," he said. "We've only lost one game in double overtime to Oak Hill. Other than that all of the other games we've been beating teams by at least double digits."

"I'm the second leading scorer on the team and I've had a great year so far and the season has been pretty fun," Ross continued.

Tonight, on national television, Ross and his teammates at Montrose will get a chance to redeem their only loss of the season when they face off against Oak Hill on ESPN 2.

Throughout the year college coaches have been a mainstay at his games and he's starting to develop an impressive list of suitors.

"It's been going pretty well," he said of his recruitment. "I've gotten a lot more schools recruiting me than I started with. So it's just getting more intense."

"Louisville, Kansas, Oklahoma, Maryland, Texas, UNLV, Georgetown, and basically the PAC-10 are recruiting me," Ross said.

Among the scholarship offers he claims are from Maryland, Louisville, Georgetown, Washington, Oregon State and Texas. He said that he's still "wide open" and won't make a college decision until sometime his senior year.
