Arkansas State has a need for big guys on the offensive and defensive lines.
The Red Wolves were the first team to offer Louisiana defensive lineman Centerio Ford. The talented defender has picked up four more offers since.
"Arkansas State was my first offer," Ford told AStateNation.com. "Since that offer, four other schools have offered. Now I have offers from UAPB, Louisiana Monroe, Southeast Louisiana and McNeese State."
Ford was very excited about getting his first offer from ASU.
"I'm from Memphis originally, I'm very familiar with Arkansas State and Hugh Freeze when was coaching at a Memphis HS," Ford said. "My dad still lives in Memphis."
Ford plans on taking a trip to Jonesboro in the near future.
"I'm definitely going to take a trip there either this summer or in the fall," Ford said. "I'm hearing a lot of good things about the school."
According to Ford, he is being recruited by Arkansas State's new defensive coordinator Dave Womack.
"Coach Womack keeps telling me how family oriented they are at ASU," Ford said. "I like Coach Womack a lot, he is very down to earth and easy to talk to."
It appears that Arkansas State is recruiting Ford to play defensive end.
"They offered me to play DE," Ford said. "They like my speed off the corner."
Ford, a 6-foot-2, 295-pound athlete, could easily move inside and play the tackle position.
