5-foot-9 and 170 pound wide receiver Devin Ross received a scholarship offer from San Diego State on Wednesday.
Despite being listed on Scout as a cornerback, Ross has received his offer from SDSU as a wide receiver.
Ross is excited about the offer, but does not know much about SDSU.
"The only thing I really know about SDSU is that my cousin told me that the school is really good in Business Finance, and that's what I want to major in," said Ross.
Despite knowing little about SDSU, Ross still knows a bit about the city of San Diego.
"I think San Diego is a really good place," said Ross. "I've been there a few times for camps and a few times with my dad. I haven't been to the school, but the environment surrounding it is really nice."
Although Ross is listed as a cornerback, the coaches at SDSU see a bright future for him as a wide receiver.
"The [SDSU] coaches told me that they have a lot of receivers that have gone to the NFL and that I'd be a good fit," said Ross. "They said that I could possibly make the NFL."
What have coaches told Ross about his style of play as a wide receiver?
"All the coaches tell me that I get off the line really fast, and I get in and out of my breaks really fast," said Ross. "They all say I'm a good route runner and that I have good hands."
Ross also has a nonstop motor and a winning attitude.
"I feel like I bring a lot of energy to a team," asserted Ross. "Even if I feel tired or winded, I still go hard 100% of the time. I am a vocal leader and I like to talk to my teammates when they're down and pick them up."
Ross will not just have football in mind when he decides which school he will attend.
"My first thing is education," said Ross. "I want to major in Business Finance because I know that football won't be here forever, so I want a good education first off. Location doesn't really matter. I just want to go to a good school that has a good education and a good football program put together."
Ross wants to play wide receiver in college, but he is not limiting himself to the position.
"I really want to play wide receiver, but I'm not going to throw defense under the bus," said Ross. "I like defense too, but I have a passion for receiving. I'll play defensive back--it's not like it's something I hate."
A lot of schools want Ross' talent on their team, but it seems like the Aloha State is trying to extremely hard to get the California kid to fly over the Pacific Ocean to attend college.
""Hawaii is really recruiting me hard," said Ross. "The coach is telling me that they are only offering three receivers, so they like me a lot. They like me at both wide receiver and cornerback. They are recruiting me the hardest."
Ross' offer list includes: Boston College, California, Colorado, Fresno State, Hawaii, Iowa State, Minnesota, Nevada, Utah, Washington State and Wyoming.
Going into his senior season, Ross has focused on a few things to improve upon.
"I feel that I need to get faster and that I need to get better in my downfield blocking," said Ross. "I really want to get stronger because I play in the slot and I have to block linebackers instead of corners."
At the moment, Ross has no visits planned, and it appears that he is in no rush to make a commitment.
