Justyn Ross, a wide receiver in the 2019 class, announced his Top 5 on today and as many predicted, Alabama is in.
Florida, Clemson, Auburn and Florida State were the other four schools he included. According to 247 Sports, Ross listed as a 5-star recruit. He is also the No. 1 player in the state of Alabama per the site.
Ross is one of Alabama’s priority targets. It is easy to tell why Alabama is so determined to land this in state recruit. He is a very aggressive receiver that can go and compete for the ball in the air. He is also a speed demon. Once he has broken free it is pretty much impossible to catch him. This guy is pretty much the full package, obtaining the hands, route running prowess and sheer playmaking abilities in open space.
The Crimson Tide is known for getting receivers that can come in and make an immediate impact. Julio Jones, Amari Cooper and Calvin Ridley all had huge freshman seasons. Ross could be the next guy that comes in take the SEC by storm. The 6’4″ 195-pounder is looking like he is definitely an elite talent. It will be interesting to see how his recruiting process goes from this point on. Alabama recruiting continues to get good news. Ross would be arguably the biggest recruit in Alabama’s 2018 recruiting class, if he is the next player to commit.
