Oklahoma transfer Alex Ross poised to join Mizzou

Oklahoma Sooners transfer running back Alex Ross appears set to join the Missouri Tigers.

According to a report from Chris Gervino of KOMUSports.com, Ross has signed his financial aid agreement with the University of Missouri just one week after announcing his transfer from Oklahoma.

Ross, a graduate transfer, will be eligible to play for the Tigers immediately.

But while Ross signed his financial aid agreement, the Missouri coaching staff still appears to have some doubts that he will actually follow through and join the team.

A source told me earlier this week that #Mizzou's staff will feel safer about Alex Ross' transfer once he signs a lease.

Last season, Ross saw limited action and recorded just 172 yards and a touchdown. During his career with Oklahoma, Ross racked up 786 yards and five touchdowns.

In his best season, 20014, Ross was second on the team in rushing with 595 yards.
