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.
