COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Not only were Florida and Texas well-represented at the June 28 'Big Show' one-day camp at College Park, but the Terps had one Atlanta quarterback make the long trek up as well.
Stephenson High School (Atlanta, Ga.) quarterback/defensive back Dewann Ford, a 2015 athlete trying to snag an offer, worked out on both sides of the ball for quarterbacks coach Mike Locksley as well as secondary coach Brian Stewart inside Byrd Stadium.
"It went well. It was a competitive and a hard working camp," said Ford, who had never been to campus before.
To date, Wake Forest, Indiana and South Florida have offered. Ford flew in Saturday morning and left late that evening after the four-hour camp in Byrd.
"Maryland said they are going to stay in touch and are going to come look at me play this year. At quarterback they are looking at me the most," Ford said of what position UMD likes him best.
It was his first college trip this summer, while he plays AAU basketball and has been to the area before for tournaments.
"He was teaching good technique, good footwork, and I'm learning," Ford said of Locksley working him among eight or so quarterbacks at the camp.
Up next this summer, Ford had trips to Iowa and Indiana scheduled.
Ford is a standout in the classroom and hopes to study mechanical engineering at college. He's 6-feet-3, 185 pounds and runs his 40-yard dash in the 4.5-second range.
"What caught my attention [at the camp] was everyone just hustled everywhere, on the field and then running off of it. These guys were hard-working, very competitive and just keep grinding," Ford said of the UMD coaches.
