Jason Ford, a 4-star, 5-10, 215 pound RB out of Althoff Catholic HS in Belleville, Ill. has made a verbal commitment to play for the Iowa Hawkeyes, according to a source close to the situation.
Ford, who ran for over 1500 yards and scored 17 touchdowns during his junior campaign, is one of the top prospects in the state of Illinois in the 2008 class.
Ford had been eying an early decision, but this came earlier than most had predicted. Jason had recently listed his top 4 as Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
