Oklahoma Sooners announce RB Alex Ross will graduate and transfer from the program

After falling on the depth chart, Ross has decide to leave the program

Oklahoma Sooners running back Alex Ross intends to graduate and transfer from the program, Sooners coach Bob Stoops announced through a release Friday afternoon.

Ross was a redshirt junior last season. He'll graduate next week and will be immediately eligible where he intends to play.

Primarily a kick returner - and one of the best in the nation two years ago, Ross averaged 25.7 yards per return, third-best all-time at Oklahoma, and finished 301 yards shy of tying the program record. Ross earned All-American status two years ago when he scored twice returning kicks and averaged 31.2 yards per return.

"Alex has been a great teammate and team guy for four years for us, and we've always been proud of him," Stoops said in a release. "This is an opportunity for him to go somewhere else and play full time. We wish him the best."

Ross, a Jenks High graduate, finished his Oklahoma career with 786 yards and five touchdowns. He will graduate with a degree in Oklahoma's Arts and Sciences Planned Program.
