Ross showed improvements in his game during his time at Team One West. He is a talented, athletic, Catcher with good skills. Behind the plate, Ross moves well laterally, holds a good target, and he gets around the ball. He blocks and receives well and gains ground when throwing out runners. Ross has a quick transfer and throws accurately with carry to his target. Looser actions and improved body control will only help Ross get even better behind the plate. Offensively, Ross has a balanced approach and good bat speed. He has a proper load, he stays inside the ball, and he can hit to all fields. Ross will be an impact player at the next level.

Ross is a C who brings an average size high school frame to the diamond. Behind the plate, Ross sets up with a low, flexible stance and a sway in his movements. He centers up on his block, and throws with quick feet, good carry, and a nice arm stroke. He would become an even better C by getting wider feet on his set up, by getting quicker off his knees when blocking, and by sitting back more on legs when throwing. At the plate, Hough displays a level bat path, has good extension through the baseball, his lower ½ works well, and he has good barrel accuracy. Ross would benefit from exploding more with his hands and by using the opposite field more often. Mr. Hough shows lots of potential and worth keeping an eye on in the future.
