Another Big Offer For Poona

Hilton Head defensive tackle Poona Ford has put together an impressive offer list to date, and that list became even bigger Wednesday afternoon. Ohio State became the latest school to offer Ford.

Poona Ford has seen his recruitment take off in the past few months, and the Hilton Head defensive tackle now holds nearly 15 offers.

Ford, 6-foot-1, 275-pounds, added an offer from Ohio State Wednesday afternoon. He is expected to camp at Ohio State in June.

"Ohio State did offer Poona today," B.J. Payne, Ford's head coach, stated Wednesday afternoon. "Coach (Mike) Vrabel called me today and told me Poona has an Ohio State offer. He has always had Ohio State high on his list, so he was really pleased to get this offer."

"Vrabel said they will be in to see him this week, but the more they watched his film they decided they didn't have to wait to see him in person," Payne added. "I sent every program a video of Poona's size and reach, and people were amazed at his wingspan."

"He was headed out to track when I told him about the offer, but he had a big smile on his face when he heard about it," he continued. "We will be up at Ohio State on June 9th for camp, and Poona is looking forward to working with Vrabel and being coached by him at camp. A lot of schools are high on his list, but this one meant a lot to Poona."

In addition to Ohio State, Ford also holds offers from the likes of Arkansas, Kansas State, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee.
