Ross (6-1, 218) added size and strength during his redshirt season last year, and could earn carries behind seniors Damien Williams and Brennan Clay next year.
“I'm sure sitting out for a year has inspired him to play and pushed him a bit,” Clay said of the former Jenks standout. “He knows it just comes with time. It's all about timing. He's doing a great job. He's listening well in the room. He's watching film.”
Durron Neal, So., WR
Neal (5-11, 201) saw action in nine games last season as a true freshman, finishing the year with four receptions and 62 yards.
The former four-star prospect from St. Louis said lining up against senior corner Aaron Colvin this spring has made him better.
“I feel like I'm progressing well,” Neal said. “Just learning every day from last year. I feel like I'm going against the best corner in the country.”
