Detroit Western International 2015 running back , Romello Ross, is taking advantage of his new position on Detroit Maximum Exposure—playing wide receiver.

Also known as team ‘Max Ex', Ross plays for the local Detroit club team in 7-on-7 tournament play.

"I've been getting better at catching, playing with Max Ex," Ross told GoBlueWolverine. "With Max Ex, I am playing in the slot. So, I be doing a lot of routes and catching passes."

At 5-foot-11, 190-pounds, Ross said he is open to playing either position in college.

Currently, Ross has offers, but says he is starting to generate interest from a few notable programs.

"Schools I believe that are looking at me are Michigan, Penn State, Iowa and Western Michigan," Ross said.

While the Wolverines have yet to offer Ross, he says he has enjoyed his numerous trips to Ann Arbor.

"The last time I went up to Michigan it was the basketball team hosted Indiana," he recalled. "I loved it. It was great up there. The coaches, everything. We toured the football facilities. It was a good time.

"There is nothing bad about Michigan. The coaching staff tells you how it is. They stay real with you."

But one coach has stuck out to Ross thus far on his visits to Michigan's campus.

"I talked to coach Fred Jackson. I like him. He's a great coach," Ross said. "He is inspirational. That's' like the only coach when I go up there, that I be around most. Yeah, I like him as a coach and I would love to play for him."

Ross says he plans on camping at U-M this June. He says he also plans on camping at Western Michigan.

As far as what Ross is looking for on his campus visits, he says connecting with people I the most important.

"Are the people there people I want to be around," Ross said." Like, do I like the atmosphere of it and just being there. Cause, if you don't like being there, I won't have fun where I go if I don't like it there."

Moving forward, Ross said he has one mission heading into his junior season.

"I just want to prove that I'm the best," Ross exclaimed. "I just want to be the best. I want to be known as the best (player) leaving out the PSL."
