Ford Recovering Well, Plans Spring Game Visit

Kirbyville (TX) runningback LeFrederick Ford has been recovering from a torn rotator cuff that he injured last season, and because of that injury Ford has not made any unofficial trips. Ford's area recruiter Jim Turner has been working hard to get the 6-foot, 190-pound junior down for the Maroon & White game and it seems that Turner has succeeded. Websider's Taylor Hamm has the latest on Ford.

As many programs start to wrap-up their spring practices, 2011 recruits are trying to plan which spring games they want to attend. Kirbyville runningback LeFrederick Ford has been recovering from a torn rotator cuff that he injured last season, and because of that injury Ford has not made any unofficial trips. Ford's area recruiter Jim Turner has been working hard to get the 6-foot, 190-pound junior down for the Maroon & White game and it seems that Turner has succeeded.

"Yea my dad wants to come down there so I will be there. My dad and I talked about it today (Tuesday). We are excited because we have been trying to get down there but my injury has kept us from making the trip."

Ford will see his physician on the 20th when he gets back from A&M. The appointment is nothing but a routine checkup to mark his progression and see how his physical therapy is going. Despite his injury, Ford has picked up new offers from Baylor, Lamar, SFA, and Tulane.

"It's all the same but it gives me something to think about," said Ford about his new offers.

While many believe A&M leads for the junior, who rushed for over 2,500 yards and lead his team to the 2A state title game, Ford seems content on weighing out all of his options.

"I talked to Coach Turner yesterday (Monday). He asked me when I was going to make a commitment to their college. He wanted me to come out to their spring game."

"I want to take my time and make my decision when I feel ready. I could commit when I'm down there if everything goes well, but I'm just thinking about everything right now and not in any hurry," said Ford.
