At the same time, the move hasn't slowed any schools from aggressively recruiting Ross, as his 10 offers would show.
"I've gotten offers from Washington, Washington State, Oregon State, Nebraska, Tennessee, Purdue, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado State and Michigan State," said Ross. "Plus, I'm hearing a lot from UCLA, USC and Cal, even though they haven't offered me yet."
Ross wouldn't name a favorite from the schools, but hinted that he prefers the in-state colleges.
"I'm going to start narrowing my list down soon," said Ross.
Recruiting Ross from the Bruin staff is Eric Bieniemy.
"Coach Bieniemy is a great coach and a very honest guy. He gives it to you straight."
Ross has already scheduled his first official visit, heading to Nebraska on September 3rd for the Huskers' season opener.
"I'm excited to take some trips. I'm not going to make any decision early. I plan to take all of the trips I can to get a good idea of where I want to go. I'm going to weigh the pros and cons."
Ross is planning to attend the Scout Combine in Los Angeles later this month.
During his junior year at Los Osos, Ross rushed for 334 yards on 34 carries and 5 touchdowns while tallying 44 tackles, 2 fumble recoveries and a pass breakup.
Academically, Ross is carrying a 2.3 GPA and will take the SAT on June 4th.
