"Recruiting is going well," said Ford. "Virginia Tech offered me, Virginia, Florida, West Virginia, Tennessee, Clemson, Michigan, Michigan State [have all offered], and I've been talking to USC. The most recent one is Tennessee."
Although Ford denies having any favorites, he's been very active in taking and scheduling official visits.
"I took a visit to Michigan State a month ago," said Ford. "This weekend I'm going to Virginia Tech, next week I'm going to Clemson, and I have to set up some more after that. I want to try to go out to USC and then take one down to Florida because it's my home."
Ford, a 5-foot-9 175-pounder, was one of the brighter stars at the Fork Union combine Tuesday when he was unofficially clocked at 4.12 seconds twice on the 40-yard dash. That speed matched with his on field vision make him a lethal weapon with the ball in his hands.
"[Recruiters] are looking at me at wide receiver and especially punt return, kick return because of my speed and my vision," said Ford.
During his post-graduate football season at Fork Union, Ford showed that speed and vision when he ran three kick-offs and two punt returns back for touchdowns. He also added 14 receiving touchdowns to his total.
