NCAT freshman Randolph Ross runs world's fastest 400m time at Texas Tech

Months after going viral for choosing an HBCU over Power Five track programs, Randolph Ross is already killing the game.

Remember the high school track athlete that shunned Power Five teams to go to an HBCU last year? He’s already setting records.

NCAT freshman Randolph Ross ran a 45.44 in the 400 meters, the fastest time in the world this year so far.


Ross set the mark at the Texas Tech Invitational on Friday. The freshman has literally blazed onto the scene the first month of the indoor season, running a 45.85.

The freshman is the son of A&T track coach Duane Ross. He went viral last season when he picked his father’s program over South Carolina, Ohio State and Iowa.

His decision got a lot of feed back on social media and its clear that he’s one to watch the rest of the indoor season and heading into the outdoor season as well.
