He has come a long ways from the kid who was good enough to see reps if he could just catch the ball. In fact, RS-SR WR Devin Ross was named to the preseason watch list for the Fred Biletnikoff Award, presented annually to the outstanding receiver in college football.
After flashing serious potential his first few seasons yet struggling with drops, Ross left the past behind and broke out in 2016. He led team in receptions with 66, which ranked as the fourth-most in the Pac-12, had 765 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Along with senior’s WR Shay Fields and WR Bryce Bobo, Ross returns with eyes set on a big year in 2017.
He is a big piece of an offense that promises to be one of the best in school history and potentially one of the best in the country. He is tied for 15th in school history (with his position coach Darrin Chiaverini) with 97 receptions, and is 21st in receiving yards with 1,113.
