Seton-LaSalle (Pa.) rising junior Paris Ford received quite the surprise this past weekend.
It was a simple phone call from his head coach to inform him of his latest offer, from West Virginia, which definitely came as a surprise.
“It was honestly unexpected,” Ford recalled about learning of the offer. “A WVU coach called my coach and told him they were offering me a full ride. I’m beyond blessed.”
Ford, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound, wide receiver, is intrigued by the Mountaineers' involvement in large part because he’s been a fan since a young age.
“I’ve liked them since I was seven years old,” Ford described. “I’m just beyond blessed to have a full ride to play football at WVU.”
This past season he caught 34 passes for 527 yards and 10 touchdowns.
