Louisville Lands Commitment From Florida Safety

Charlie Strong and company are back making big-time recruiting waves in the Sunshine State, this time landing a commitment from Apopka (FL) Wekiva High School safety Terrence Ross.

Ross is the first Wekiva (a school established in 2007) player ever to commit to a D-I school. Though his school's low profile kept him under-the-radar for the past few seasons, the senior-to-be has seen his star rise dramatically in recent months after his highlight film began to circulate and coaches were able to see him at a big-time 7-on-7 event.

Louisville was the first school to offer Ross, when it did so back on March 27.

"[Head coach] Charlie Strong has a nice bond," Ross said at the time. "He's from where I'm from and used to coach in Belle Glade. So he knows where I'm coming from. And he's the defensive coach even though he's the head coach."

Cincinnati, Wake Forest and NC State then quickly followed with offers. With local powers Florida, Florida State and Miami beginning to show significant interest, Strong was able to get the rising junior to pledge his allegiance to The Ville.

"Terrence Ross is a really athletic, fluid safety who can cover a lot of ground quickly when he breaks on the ball," Rivals.com scout Chris Nee recently tweeted. "Good length too."
