FACE TO FACE: Mat Smith with CU wide receiver Devin Ross

418

CU wide receiver Devin Ross has come a long way from the kid who was only good enough to get reps just to see if he could catch the ball. In fact, the redshirt senior was named to the preseason watch list for the Biletnikoff Award, presented annually to the outstanding receiver in college football.

After flashing serious potential his first few seasons but struggling with drops, Ross left the past behind and broke out in 2016. He led the Buffs in receptions with 66, ranked as the fourth-most in the Pac-12, and had 765 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Along with seniors wideouts Shay Fields and Bryce Bobo, Ross returns with eyes set on a big year in 2017.

He is a big piece of an offense that promises to be one of the best in school history and potentially one of the best in the country. He is tied for 15th in school history (with his position coach Darrin Chiaverini) with 97 receptions, and is 21st in receiving yards with 1,113.
