Florida WR enjoys Big 10 visit

Florida WR enjoys Big 10 visit

O.J. Ross is a talented wide receiver prospect from Mainland High in Daytona Beach and Scout caught up with him following his visit to Big 10 country this past weekend.

O.J. Ross took his first official visit of the year this past weekend when he went to Purdue with two of his teammates (Ricardo Allen and Chevin Davis). He talked about it.

"I had a real good visit there," Ross said. "They beat Ohio State in a real good game. They're having a rough year right now but they lost a few of their games in the final minutes. I think they're gonna be pretty good next year and they need receivers to come in there and play."

Ross said he enjoyed hanging out with a lot of familar faces.

"It was the three of us and Tahj Kimble was also there," he said. "He played on our 7on7 Team from the spring. And Ted Meline from Miami was there. We were all cool with each other. They have a lot of Florida guys on their roster."

Ross, 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, said he now has plans to visit two other schools.

"I'm still real interested in North Carolina but they want me to wait until after the season, like in January, before taking my visit there," he said. "And I plan on going to Rutgers on December 5th. Those are the ones I'm looking at the most right now."

The standout receiver has been battling a high ankle sprain lately but he's played in four games and has four touchdowns this season.

"I'm back at full strength now," he said. "The bye week was good for us. We're ready to get the passing game going this week against Pine Ridge."
