Ford Suffers Setback
Khalif Ford, 6-0 SR PG Diamond Bar (Calif.) High, was playing very well this year, until he tore his patella tendon recently. Ford said he felt something in his leg when warming up for a game against Walnut. He played with the injury, but knew that something wasn't right. When he visited the doctor for an MRI later that week, he learned that he had damaged his patella tendon. "The doctor said that it didn't happen all at once -- it had been a gradual thing," said Ford. "He said I didn't tear it completely -- it was 30% torn. I'll probably be out for six to eight months. I'll be in a straight leg brace for about a month, then start physical therapy. But the doctor says I should be fine once it heals." Ford said he had been receiving some interest from San Diego St., Boise State, San Jose State and East Carolina. "I went to San Diego St. when they played Arizona," said Ford. "I like Steve Fisher -- he gives a lot of players an opportunity to play." Ford hasn't scheduled any official visits yet and he's uncertain when he'll able to set visits, due to the injury. "I'd like to play in a league with good competiton," said Ford. "East Carolina is in Conference USA, so they have good teams in their league. I don't really care about location."
