After landing Saddleback College (CA) play maker Deondre Moore on Monday, another Junior College wide receiver will bring his talents to Kent State. Last night Donte Ross of Antelope Valley College (CA) announced via his Twitter page that he’s fully committed to the Flashes nearly a week after receiving his scholarship offer from the Kent State staff.

“I felt like it was the right fit for me. I like that they were heading in the right direction as a program and I just felt comfortable with the team and the coaches. Everybody was cool and laid back. They all showed me a lot of love which means a lot to me.” The 6’1 180-pound speedster stated to Hustle Belt as a few of the reasons that led him to making Kent State his college choice.

Although he didn’t pick up a long list of scholarship offers like many recruits on the scene, Ross, who has three years of eligibility left, was one of the top play makers in the California Community College Athletic Association. Last season he hauled in 61 receptions for 1,082 yards and 10 touchdowns to help pace the Antelope Valley College Marauders to an overall record of 7-4.

“He's special. I think he will be a big time guy for them.” AVC head coach Perry Jehlicka shared on the future Flash.

Less than a week away from national signing day, Paul Haynes and the Kent State coaching staff are now currently sitting at 20 commitments for the 2017 recruiting cycle.

Playing host to a solid group of recruits this weekend will the Golden Flashes add another piece or two to the puzzle? Keep checking Hustle Belt for the latest recruiting news on the Mid-American Conference.
