Ross informed JCFootball.com of his decision shortly after sending in his letter-of-intent.
"Signed with New Mexico," a happy Ross said in a message. "The coaching staff came out to see me twice and they just showed that they really believed in me. I also just always loved Mountain West football."
Ross was one of the top corners in the country this fall and he finished tied for fifth in the state with six interceptions while also posting 45 tackles and 15 pass breakups.
The talented corner is set to graduate this month and he will have three years to two starting in 2017.
