Three-star WR considering Louisville offer?

O.J. Ross, a three-star prospect from Daytona Beach (FL) Mainland, committed to Purdue earlier this season. But the No. 67 wide receiver recently received an offer from Louisville coach Charlie Strong. Is Ross open to the Cardinals?

O.J. Ross, a speedy three-star wide receiver from Daytona Beach, Florida, talked to Charlie Strong the day he was introduced as Louisville's new coach and picked up a scholarship offer from the Cardinals.

"I talked to him last week," Ross said. "He offered me but I'm not sure if I want to de-commit right now. He called me the day he got the job and talked for about ten minutes. It was alright."

Ross committed to Purdue last month along with teammates Chevin Davis and Ricardo Allen. Despite his commitment to the Boilermakers, West Virginia, Rutgers and North Carolina are still recruiting him and Allen has been making other visits.

Still, Ross said last week that he's "pretty solid" with his commitment to Purdue and wasn't sure if he'd visit Louisville. Ross said Strong will visit with him in January. "I'm not sure if I'm going to consider Louisville," Ross said. "I'm pretty solid to Purdue."

Ross, who runs a 4.4 forty, had 20 receptions for more than 400 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior despite missing three games due to injury. Before committing to Purdue, Ross, 6'0, 175, considered offers from Rutgers, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas Tech, Kentucky and West Virginia.
