The other nine candidates to open the season are LSU's Sean "Squirrel" Burrell, Florida State's Trey Cunningham, Florida's Joseph Fahnbulleh, Oregon's Emmanuel Ihemeje, Iowa State's Wesley Kiptoo, Texas A&M's Brandon Miller, Notre Dame's Yared Nuguse, Georgia's Karel Tilga and Arizona State's Turner Washington.
Ross Jr. is coming off a spectacular season in which he won three event national championships in 2021. During the indoor season, he helped the men's 4x400 team that also included Trevor Stewart, Elijah Young and Daniel Stokes win the national title in Fayetteville, Ark. He also finished second nationally in the 400 meters. For the rest of the story:ncataggies.com/news/2022/1/6/track-field-ross-jr-makes-the-bowerman-list.aspx
