SMSB: 2015 QB Pat Ford

The Sound Mind Sound Body camp in Detroit attracted several Ohio prospects last weekend, including Walsh Jesuit quarterback Pat Ford. The top 2015 signal caller threw the football very well.

Pat Ford is one of the more intriguing 2015 quarterback prospects in Ohio, and the Walsh Jesuit product bares a strong resemblance to former Massillon quarterback Kyle Kempt (Oregon State recruit).

Ford, 6-foot-5, 200-pounds, started last year as a sophomore and hit the radar in his first game by throwing for over 250-yards and two touchdowns against Canton McKinley. He threw the football well last weekend in Detroit at the Sound Mind Sound Body camp.

"It was fun being here and the competition was great," Ford stated. "I was in a group with (Penn State commit) Michael O'Connor and I threw well going against him. I was also selected in the Top-10 for the skills challenge."

"I thought I threw the deep balls well, the fades and go-routes," he added. "I need to work on my drops a little bit, getting the angle straight back, but overall I think I did well."

College recruiters have taken notice of Ford, even though he has two years of high school remaining.

"Toledo, Kent State and Michigan State all pulled me out of drills here to talk about their schools," he explained. "I was at Louisville's camp earlier, and they said they are going to recruit me over the next few years. They all want to see me come to camp and throw, to get to know me better."

"They also invited me to games next year," Ford continued. "Tennessee has been to my school, and they asked my coach to have me call them. I'm definitely interested in them, and would love to get down there to check them out."
