Ros on the radar of several D1 schools

Coming into the season, Katy Cinco Ranch ATH Shane Ros was the starting QB in an offense that was suited for his athleticism. After a solid sophomore year and good numbers in early in his junior season, Ros was getting some looks from major DI programs. But an unexpected turn of events sidelined him for the rest of the season. TPI caught up with the Class of 2009 ATH to get this recruiting update.

Katy Cinco Ranch athlete Shane Ros came into the 2007 season as a junior to watch after a stellar showing as a sophomore. After a year as a defensive back, Ros was slated to move over to offense and start at quarterback.

Along the way, Ros has gained the attention of several college recruiters. 

"I am hearing from a lot of schools," 6-1, 190-pound Ros said. "But the ones showing the most interest are: Kansas State, Wake Forest, SMU, Boston College, and North Carolina. K-State and SMU invited me to a game early in the season and BC and North Carolina requested a game tape."

At the moment, Ros does not have a favorite and is open to all interest. Others schools that have been in correspondence are Minnesota, Purdue, Houston, Texas Tech and Florida.

With interest like this coming to Ros, it is apparent that he is already on the radar of several programs. This season, Ros has put up big numbers despite his short time on the field. In 5.5 total quarters, Ros had 413 yards passing and a touchdown. On the ground, he rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns.

An unforeseen event occurred in Week 2 that sidelined him for the remainder of his junior season.

"Against Strake Jesuit, I hurt my right ACL," Ros said. "I tried to play on it a few weeks, but it was not doing good. I recently had surgery on it."

Though he has a significant recovery time, Ros is not going to let this get him down for his future in football as an athlete. He plans to return and showcase himself this spring and summer.

"I'll be able to go through spring practice and go to camps this summer," Ros said. "When it comes to college, I want to go wherever they are interested and will let me get on the field. I just want to show the coaches that I am comfortable playing anywhere."
