The Bellevue (Wash.) 2015 safety, Ross Connors, is getting an early jump on the recruiting process...

Bellevue (Wash.) 2015 safety Ross Connors is one of the returning starters on a stout defense for the Wolverines, a defense that pitched six shutouts a year ago and only twice in 14 games gave up more than 10 points.

Connors, who plays outside linebacker but could also play safety, is hoping to play linebacker in college.

“I want to play either safety or outside linebacker, but my ceiling might be better at outside linebacker,” said Connors. “It depends on how big I get. I might play that rover spot this year, but however I can get on the field, I’ll play either spot. I like covering and shoring up the run, but it’s cool to be in run support the whole time.”

Connors said he grew up a fan of Montana State and has some early interest in the Ivy League schools, but is hoping a big junior year will open some FBS eyes.

“Dartmouth, Harvard and Yale are the schools I’ve mostly talked with. But I have to prove it this year, and then hopefully something will come from that,” said Connors. “Wherever I could play, Ivy League, Big Sky, Pac-12, I’ll play.”

This summer, Connors plans to do the Barton Showcase and the Bellevue team camp.

Academically, he has a 3.7 and is taking three AP classes next fall. He’ll wait until his junior year to take the SAT or ACT.

Brandon is in his ninth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
