John Ford has the kind of attitude you love in a lineman. "I hit 'em hard out on the field," he says. "I am a determined player."

Ford had a very enjoyable time in Boulder. "It was awesome. I really liked how peaceful it was. The campus was not too big so it is not like you would get lost there. I met a lot of good people."

He has now attended junior days at CU and SMU. "This summer, I will probably go back to Colorado's one-day camp. I might also go to TCU's."

His current top five includes the Buffs, Texas, Colorado State, and SMU. "I have always followed Texas so I really like them, but I am open to everybody right now."

Coach Wristen is recruiting him for CU.

He plays offensive tackle at Seguin, but most likely projects as an offensive guard.

Ford carries a 2.4 core GPA and scored an 890 on the SAT. He would like to major in History with a minor in Education.
