Ford Headed To Prep School First
Michael Ford, a member of the Alabama Lasers, committed to Memphis on Monday evening, according to his AAU coach.
Ford helped lead the Alabama Lasers to the 2002 Boo Williams title and was named MVP of the event. At the recent Nike Camp, Ford played injured. "He was hurt," Pearson said. "He sprained his ankle coming into the camp. He didn't move as well as he could."
The skinny on Ford is that he's a 6-7 shooter. He weighs somewhere between 165 and 175 pounds. He's going to attend prep school this coming year at Fitchburg (MA) Notre Dame. He's going to need to put on a lot of weight if he's to be ready to compete in Conference USA in 2003.
