DB Setting Visits

Miami (Fla.) Northwestern standout cornerback Trevor Ford has locked down opposing wide receivers through the first two games and says he's ready for more action.

"Teams just ain't throwing the ball my way," Ford said. "It's good they ain't gettin anything on my side but I wanna get my hands on the ball. Even on kickoffs, they kick it away from me. We play North Miami this week and I'm hoping to get some action as a receiver."

Ford said part of the reason he doesn't get many reps on offense is because of the number of playmakers on that side of the ball.

"Guys like Khalil (Jones) and Terry (Perry) are making plays," he said. "You should have seen the catch that Khalil made the last game. The corner from Columbus was about 6-1, like me, and Khalil just went up over him and took it from mid air. It was tight. Terry, he's the best running back in the county, I think."

Ford said he recently heard about the news of Willie Williams being eligible this season. He's excited.

"I'm not looking ahead or anything but they're 2-0 like us and we play them later in the season," he said. "I saw him last night and he said we better be ready. He better be too cause Terry's gonna shake him."

Ford has also stayed busy while talking to the numerous college coaches that have been calling lately.

"The coaches are calling almost every night," he said. "I'm starting to set up some of my visits so I can narrow it down some. Right now, I got Iowa for December 12th and Florida State for January 7th. The coach from Kansas State said he's trying to work out a date when me, Lovon Ponder, and Charlie Jones can all visit there together. That would be tight."

Ford said he still remains high on the Hurricanes.

"Of course UM's in there too," he said. "I know a lot about them so I might not even need to (take a visit there). They're still on top right now. I've been talking to the coaches, just keeping in touch with each other. I wanna take my visits before I commit anywhere though."
