James Ross

Name: James Ross

Location: Orchard Lake, MI

Position: MLB

Ratings: ESPN – Watch Lister; Rivals – NR*; Scout – 4*

Current Interest: Level three – Michigan will be in his top group at the end

Offers: Michigan, MSU, Cincinnati, Purdue and Pittsburgh have offered; has interest from Penn State, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

Stats: Currently weighs around 210lbs at 6’1 and runs the forty yard dash in 4.6 seconds. As a sophomore he had 103 tackles and 1 interception along with 5 forced fumbles and five sacks.

Film Highlights: Link here.

Recruiting Intro: Like his good friend Terry Richardson, Ross could be very hard to keep in state; especially since he grew up a bit of an OSU fan. Still, Michigan has offered, whilst the Buckeyes haven’t, so that’s a bit of good fortune. Having Greg Mattison as the defensive co-ordinator will only help things, as all middle linebackers want to be Ray Lewis...It’s still early days, but I’m reasonably optimistic about Michigan’s chances.

Recruiting Updates: N/A

  1. Its curious that so many LBs were taken in the '11 class when LBs like Jenkins-Stone and Ross are two of the highest profile recruits in the state in '12. I suppose it's wise to not assume they'll come to Michigan, but one has to wonder what the impact of that strategy is on these two highly regarded players.
