RAPID CITY --- The South Dakota School of Mines men’s basketball team along with head coach Jason Henry is pleased to announce the signing of new recruit Michael Ross to the Hardrocker hoops program.
Ross comes to South Dakota School of Mines from Ft. Worth Texas, where the 6-foot-1-inch point guard played for 4A South Hills High School.
“Michael is a very athletic player,” Henry said. “He is a fast, quick point guard that sees the floor very well. Michael will be an asset to the team right away.”
During his senior season, Ross average 22.9 points, brought down 6.6 rebounds and had 3.8 assists per game. He also had seven double-doubles in rebounds and points on the season and notched two triple doubles and was just a steal away from recording a quadruple double. He also earned first team all district honors his senior year.
In his high school career, Ross averaged 22.3, 4.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.3 steals per game.
“With his speed and athleticism, Michael will be bringing something different to the Hardrocker program at the point guard position,” Henry said.
His abilities as an athlete are far reaching as Ross is a stellar track and field standout. He runs the 100-meter dash in 10.7 seconds and has reached a distance of over 47 feet in the triple jump. Ross was also named the 4A offensive football player of the year for his district.
Ross plans to major in Mechanical Engineering while attending South Dakota School of Mines.
