Oklahoma doesn’t need Alex Ross to make an impact next season. But don’t be surprised if the redshirting running back sees playing time in 2013. Why? Because Ross brings a unique combination of size, at 6-foot-1, and terrific speed at 204 pounds.

Asked about Ross's most impressive trait, fellow running back Brennan Clay didn’t have to think twice.

“His speed, of course,” Clay said. “He’s putting on weight and he’s done a great job with the scout team, giving the defense a great look. He’s young and he’s learning. I’m excited to see him get on the field."
