CSDTV: Ross takes another look

Set to star for the South in Saturday's Cal State Game, John Ross re-evaluates where Cal stands after hearing about the new staff's offensive acumen.

VISALIA, Calif. -- Early in John Ross's recruitment, he was a bit turned off by the way he was being courted by California. Now, though, with a new staff and a new offensive system, the four-star wide receiver out of Long Beach (Calif.) Jordan is re-thinking his previous elimination of the Bears.

"The coaching staff really wasn't talking to me heavily, hard [before the coaching change]. They weren't recruiting me hard enough, so they fell off with me and I fell off with them," Ross said after practice for the South team in Visalia on Thursday, in preparation for Saturday's Cal State Game.

The change in coaching staff and the change in offensive philosophy, though, has piqued Ross's interest.

"Since I just found that out, I have interest in taking a visit there and talking with the coaches," Ross said.

Ross lists his current frontrunners as Washington, UCLA, Oregon State, Arizona, Washington State and Arkansas.

"I'm kind of confused right now," Ross laughed. "I don't know all the facts yet on everything. I don't know who's ready for me, and who I'm ready for, so I'm just looking right now."
