Ross is an anomaly. It is a rarity to find a player with Ross' height and weight who is a natural SG/SF. He has a beautiful stroke and can consistently knock down the deep ball. He has a quick release and is able to get his shot off in almost any situation. He has a Kevin Durant like physique and has similarities to him in his ability to sleekly attack the basket. He loves to hang around the rim with finesse. Ross is an absolute game changer. When he is on, which is most of the time, he can score at will. He is also a complete player because he has the ability to pass well and the ability to contest shots. He just might be the best player in the 2011 class. In fact Rivals ranks him as the #1 player in his class and Scout ranks him as the #2 Small Forward in the class. It should be noted that the Wolfpack Coaching Staff is going after Ross with the same intensity that they are going after Wall, Favors, and Cousins in the '09 class.
