MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Oklahoma players and coaches have raved about Alex Ross’ speed since he arrived on campus more than two years ago.
“That boy can fly,” then-OU junior running back Brennan Clay said in August 2012, after only spending a couple months around Ross. “I’m excited to see what he can do on the field, getting some open field.”
Ross redshirted that year, and played sparingly last season.
Through four games in 2014, though, the public has finally gotten to see what all the fuss was about. Ross speed past the Mountaineer kickoff coverage team just before halftime on his way to a 100-yard touchdown in Saturday’s 45-33 win at West Virginia.
