Recruiting Notes: Interest from Minnesota, Michigan State, Tennessee, Ohio, Eastern Michigan, Iowa State, North Dakota, South Dakota State, Marshall, and Toledo

Ford had a pair of touchdowns in this game, both from inside the 10 yard line, but was unable to do much more against this defense. He has a good burst and shows a knack for finding the endzone in goal line situations, and seems to do well on outside runs.

Going up the middle, he appears to stall at times trying to find a hole or changes direction at the line and gets caught up in a crowd. He needs to be more patient finding the hole and use his speed to burst through it, and then get to the second level before making another cut.
