While Gardena (Calif.) Serra cornerback Raymond Ford did not come away from Junior Day with a USC offer as he had hoped, Ford enjoyed his time on campus and committed to a return visit in June for the Rising Stars Camp in hopes of becoming a Trojan.

"It went well," said Ford, who was joined by his high school teammate, safety Patrick Wooten. "They showed us all around, the library, the weight room and everything. It was cool."

Defensive backs coach Willie Mack Garza served as tour guide for Ford, proving a look inside the day-to-day activities of the Trojans.

"He's a good coach. He showed us film of practices, what they work on and how they play defense," Ford said.

Garza also provided some motivation for Ford, who had five interceptions last season.

"He was just telling me to keep working. If I keep working hard, one day I can be there (playing for USC)," Ford said.

Ford will be back at Heritage Hall on June 22-23 for the famed Rising Stars Camp, hoping to secure an offer from the Trojans.

"That's what I'm looking forward to," said Ford, who holds an offer from Arizona State.
