Tyrese Ross is coming a long way to play his college football. The Atlanta, Georgia, senior faxed in his letter of intent to the Washington State Cougars today, making him the third safety to commit to Pullman in the 2018 class.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound defensive back is heading to the Palouse from Georgia after choosing Wazzu over a host of other offers, including the Michigan State Spartans, Mississippi St. Bulldogs, West Virginia Mountaineers and the national champion* UCF Golden Knights. Ross verbally committed to the Cougs last week and sent in his letter of intent today.
Ross joins Halid Djibril and D’Angelo McKenzie as safeties in the 2018 classes needed to desperately fill what could be a thin secondary in the coming years. Just three safeties are currently on the roster, all of them upperclassmen. There’s at least a chance one of the three could see some playing time early on so it will certainly be a position to watch in fall camp when all of them are on campus.
