Numerous sources, including ESPN.com, are reporting that high school junior LaQuinton Ross is transferring into Burlington New Jersey's Life Center Academy. Ross is transferring into LCA from Murrah High School in his native state of Mississippi. Ross was once considered a top 5 prospect nationally in the class of 2011, but his stock has dropped fairly dramatically in the past year. He is still widely considered a top 50 prospect however. Ross is a lanky 6'7 small forward who will join Syracuse-commit Dion Waiters at Life Center Academy. Ross played at the Reebok summer camps at Philadelphia University each of the past two summers. In the summer of 2008, he outplayed a number of highly regarded rising seniors. This past summer, he did appear to have lost a step and lacked the fluidity that made him such an attractive prospect. Still, there are not many high school players his size that have his perimeter skill set.
Life Center Academy hosts Saint Patrick's, the number one high school team in America, on Tuesday January 12th. Hawk Hill Hardwood will be on hand for that game.
