Memphis secures fifth verbal in last week

Cornerback B.J. Ross (Melbourne, Fla./Palm Bay) is the latest 2013 prospect to announce for Memphis, Rivals.com reports.

The Tigers are the only program to offer Ross, but Bethune-Cookman and South Florida were also recruiting the 5-foot-9, 170-pound defender.

Ross posted an electronically-timed 4.88 40-yard dash, 4.35 20-yard shuttle, 33.8-inch vertical and 72.51 SPARQ on the Nike Combine circuit this offseason.

Memphis' entire group of 2013 commitments (five) has pledged during the past seven days.
