Early years

Ross attended Thomas Jefferson High School. While in high school, Ross played in the first ever U.S. Army All-American Bowl game on December 30, 2000 alongside fellow Nebraska Cornhusker Titus Adams.

College career

Ross played college football at Nebraska, where he earned the nickname "Porkchop" because he was significantly heavy for his small stature, weighing more than fellow I-backs who were all at least 5 inches taller. His 2,743 rushing yards ranked ninth on the teams all time list. He majored in sociology.
