Frank Ross is one of the best basketball players to ever don an Eagles uniform. He ranks in the top-10 in 12 separate statistical categories, including fourth all-time in career scoring with 1,921 points. In his senior season, he finished ranked eighth in the nation with a 25.3 points per game average, the second-highest scoring average in school history. His 86 three-pointers in his senior season - the first in which the NCAA implemented the three-point line - are still the school’s single-season mark and, despite playing just one season with the rule, Ross ranks 11th all-time at AU in career three-pointers.
Ross was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers in the fifth round (108th pick) of the 1987 National Basketball Association draft. He also participated in free agent camp for the Washington Bullets prior to the 1988 NBA season.
Ross graduated from American University in 1987, with his Bachelor of Arts in Communications.
