USAAAB: Ross ready to announce
Earning the title of being named to Scout's list of top five offensive performers for both Monday and Tuesday is two-way athlete Ykili Ross. The four-star has been a consistent deep threat at wide receiver, showing off elite speed going against some of the nation's top defensive backs. "There is a lot of big time talent out there, and I'm loving the competition," Ross said. "I would say the best would have to be either Donte Jackson or Dechaun Holiday." The 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete will announce his college decision between USC and Notre Dame on live television during Saturday's game. "Yes, I am somewhat ready to get it over with," Ross said. "I still have some phone calls to make before Saturday, but it's going well. I like the academics and alumni at Notre Dame, and USC is close to home and they are on the rise in football." Two primary factors are contributing to Ross' ultimate decision. "Comfortability and atmosphere," Ross said. "It's just about my gut of where I want to go." Ross is being recruited by USC as an athlete while the Irish like him on defense. "I somewhat got put there (wide receiver) this week," Ross said. "It doesn't matter to me, I feel like I can do both." Ross is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 4 cornerback in the class of 2015.
