Terrence Ross to leave Montrose Christian

Montrose Christian senior guard Terrence Ross, who recently broke off his verbal commitment to Maryland, will leave the Rockville high school effective by the end of this week, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

Ross, a 6-foot-5, 180-lb. All-Met shooting guard who was one of Montrose Christian's leading scorers this season, backed off from his verbal commitment to the Terrapins in December and re-opened his recruitment. The schools said to be in contention for Ross's services are Duke, Kentucky and Kansas, though Montrose Christian Coach Stu Vetter has said on several occassions that Maryland remains in the mix.

Calls to Vetter's cell phone were not immediately returned Tuesday night. The reasons for Ross's decision to leave Montrose Christian remain unclear.

Rated a four-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com, Ross's stock soared earlier this season after he showed off developments in his game that went unnoticed over the summer, as Ross elected not to play in the AAU circuit. Ross had given Maryland a verbal commitment in late April 2009.

Prior to coming to Montrose Christian in the fall of 2008, Ross played two seasons at Jefferson High in Portland, Ore., the city in which Ross was raised. He attended classes at Jefferson his freshman year and was homeschooled by his mother, Marcine, while still competing for the school's basketball team during his sophomore year. Ross was named the Class 5A player of the year in Oregon following a sophomore campaign in which he led Jefferson to a state championship.

Something's stinky in Denmark. I don't feel so bad about his decommit any more, for some reason.

I agree with info, this is all starting to sound shady. I think his mom is way too involved in all this, kind of reminds me of the Josh Portis situation.

He'll end up at KY with that shady character Calipari.

Section505203 is right on. That cheating scumbag Calipari has this kid all locked up. This just doesn't make any sense.

Anyone ever meet a kid that was home-schooled that wasn't a head-case??

whew! At least this wasn't what Scott Van Pelt was talking about today on nationally televised radio and TV programs. That could really embarrass some people!
