Analysis:  A can't miss prospect.  James Ross, as a sophomore, already has what it takes to play at the next level for a BCS team.  Ross has the size, speed, and strength to compete at a very high level in varsity ball.  He shows great strength at the point of contact.  Once Ross wraps you up, the play is over.  Ross also shows great tackling technique and continues to drive his feet through the ball carrier after contact.  Ross has the speed and athleticism to excel in pass coverage and to play sideline to sideline.  He'll have plenty of time to get bigger, gain strength and work on his speed.  Ross will be one of, if not the top prospects in the state of Michigan in 2012 and possibly a top 100 player in the nation.
