Heels lead for Daytona Beach WR O.J. Ross?

Heavily-recruited Mainland High wide receiver O.J. Ross may be favoring North Carolina, his coach said last night.

After talking about Clemson commitment Cortez Davis, Mainland coach John Maronto dropped this nugget in:

“O.J. is thinking strongly about North Carolina,” he said. “It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he picked them. They’re in good shape with him.”

Ross visited Purdue over the weekend, and his three leaders are currently the Tar Heels, Boilermakers and Rutgers. He also has offers from South Carolina, West Virginia, Texas Tech and Kentucky. Florida is showing interest, but has not offered.

Ross is 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, and has been clocked at 4.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
