Ross Nabs CMU Offer

Detroit (Mich.) Western's fast, elusive running back Romello Ross picked up a first offer thi week and he shouldn't be done there.

Detroit Western is looking to build their program and get their young men avenues to get to college. One such student-athlete has now been afforded that opportunity as junior running back Romello Ross was offered by Central Michigan on Thursday night.

"Dan Enos called and offered," head coach Andre Harlan said. "I'm sure it's the first of many he is probably going to get, but I like Central and I think he can fit there."

Ross visited CMU for their junior day and according to Harlan, "he loved it."

A varsity starter since his freshman season, Ross rushed for 1400 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior, earning All-State honors, a distinction he has received in each of his three high school seasons.

It is no surprise then, that the Chippewas are not alone in their recruitment of him.

"Michigan has been talking about him, Michigan State is talking about him, Pittsburgh likes him. Those schools are showing strong interest and Eastern Michigan is as well."

Ross may also project to slot or defensive back, but the way he plays running back, Harlan says no schools have mentioned moving him yet.

Based on the attributes he brings to the position, they shouldn't have to.

"For one, you don't have to motivate him. He's self-motivated. He's explosive. He's a true, all-around running back. He can block, catch the ball out of the backfield. He can hit holes inside or go outside. Whoever gets him is getting a heck of a football player."

Not only that, but they will be getting a great kid as well.

"Romello is... I call him my son. Academically, he's a 3.5 student. He's strong in terms of discipline. He doesn't have a problem taking discipline. He does what you ask him to do, he's on point, and he just plays. He doesn't talk back -- no excuses, just results."
