On Sunday, Raymond Ford from Gardena(Calif.) Serra attended UCLA's Skills Camp.

UCLA had already made Ford a scholarship offer, prior to his attendance at the camp.

"My experience (at the camp) has been good, I played against a lot of good receivers, and I got a good workout in. This has been a very good camp to come to. I am glad I didn't miss it," said Ford.

Currently, Ford has five offers on the table. The majority of those offers are from Pac-12 programs.

"I have offers from UCLA, Colorado, SMU, Arizona State, and Arizona," said Ford.

In our interview, Ford identified his top three programs.

"My top three schools right now are UCLA, Arizona, and Arizona State. I like UCLA because of their style of play, they're aggressive and I am an aggressive corner. I think I would fit in here well. Arizona stands out to me because I like their defense. They man-press a lot, which is the way I like to play. Also Arizona State, because it's an incredible program. I think I would do well there," said Ford.

Ford, who ran a 4.38 40 at the UCLA Camp, discusses what he is looking for in a program.

"While I am seeing schools in person, I am looking at the campus and the surrounding area to see if I could see myself there for the next four years. I am just trying to figure out which school will allow me to be the most successful," said Ford.

This summer, Ford will be busy getting ready for his senior season and preparing to compete at the next level.

"I will be attending the B2G Camp next weekend, and I will also be participating in USC's Camp in a couple weeks. After that, I will just be playing with my team for the rest of the summer, working out and getting ready for the upcoming season," said Ford.
