Ross has produced two outstanding seasons at Clemson and was expected to be an even bigger contributor offensively with Tee Higgins leaving. Last season, Ross hauled in 66 receptions for 865 yards and eight touchdowns on the season. As a freshman in 2018, Ross totaled 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns on 46 catches.

Clemson has lost just one game over the last two seasons, going 15-0 in 2018 and 14-1 last season. The team’s lone loss was in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, falling to LSU.

Ross was a Freshman All-American selection by 247Sports in 2018 and was an All-ACC honorable mention last year.
