As well as 2010 prospect Terrance Ross has played this spring, a long school list would be expected from the 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard. Instead, Ross, from Portland (Ore.) Jefferson High School, only has three schools on his mind and a definite favorite.
Besides mentioning an offer from Arizona State, Ross only has Kansas, UCLA and Oregon State on his school list. Oregon State has offered and Kansas and UCLA have picked up interest over the past month.
And although the Bruins haven't offered, UCLA is a strong favorite with Ross at this point.
"I like the tempo of UCLA's game," said Ross. "They will run with the ball and have a strong transition defense. And on offense they set a lot of screens in a guard oriented way."
Making a strong claim for a five-star ranking in the next 2010 ranking, Ross was one of the top underclass performers at the recent Cactus Classic.
Always having bee a strong deep shooter, Ross has initially made an impression with his slashing and finishing and finishing ability.
"I'm not relying on the three that much," he said. "I'm taking the ball in more and pulling up for the midrange or drawing more fouls at the basket."
