Doing Well With Country's #2 CB

Rancho Cucamonga's Devin Ross, the #2-ranked cornerback in the country who was also just named to the Army All-American game, speaks highly of UCLA and has the Bruins near the top of his list...

Scout.com's No. 2-ranked cornerback, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) High's Devin Ross (5-11, 180), holds around 20 scholarship offers, but it's one offer in particular he's hoping to soon get.

"When I talked to Coach (Eric) Bieniemy last, he said they (UCLA) just needed too see my transcripts from the quarter and then if they are cool, then they would offer me," said Ross. "UCLA is a school that I'm hoping offers me real soon. They are doing real good this year."

Ross said that if UCLA offered, it wouldn't prompt a commitment, but would move the Bruins near the top of his list.

He currently holds offers from all around the country, including from Oklahoma, Tennessee, Michigan and Nebraska. All of the non-California Pac-10 schools, as well as Cal, have offered Ross.

"Right now I'd have to say that I'm pretty much down to six schools. UCLA, Oregon, Oklahoma, Cal, Nebraska and Arizona are who it's down to," Ross said.

While he wouldn't name a leader from those, Ross said that the Bruins, Sooners and Ducks were near the top.

Ross said he was hoping to attend the UCLA-Cal game on Saturday, after not being able to attend their previous two home games. He is also scheduled to take the SAT on Saturday.

He has already taken official visits to Oklahoma and Nebraska, visiting Nebraska for their season opener and Oregon two weeks ago.

"Both of the trips were real cool. I learned a lot about both schools and got to meet players and the coaches. They have great atmospheres and really get into football there," Ross said.

In his first year at Rancho Cucamonga, Ross has 28 tackles and a pair of interceptions in a 3-1 start. He has also returned a kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown against Riverside Poly.

During his junior year, which he played 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.

This weekend, Rancho Cucamonga takes on Covina (Calif.) South Hills and UCLA committed linebacker Tobi Umodu.
