Ross isn’t a prospect that lit scouts on fire while with the Buckeyes, but like so many other players in this class, he has the tools to develop into a serviceable NBA player. He may not ever be a star, but Ross could end up being a great rotational player and we’re finding that depth is a must in the NBA, even if you have a loaded talent of star power.
Right now he’s projected as an early second round pick, but there’s a chance he could sneak into the first round if all goes well for him.
