Roswell (GA) athlete Christian Ford announced a top seven on Friday night of Arkansas State, Colorado State, Illinois, Mississippi State, Troy, Wake Forest, and West Virginia. The Mountaineers have long been rumored to be the favorite in his recruitment, and while Ford did not put that list in any order, he did know exactly why West Virginia is up there on his board.
"Coach (Tyron) Carrier and Coach (Doug) Belk have been staying in contact a lot," said the 5-foot-10, 170-pound prospect. "And when I went up there, the atmosphere and the offense were perfect."
Ford visited earlier this spring for a Junior Day, but now he has his eyes on a summer visit to Morgantown. That trip should happen within the next couple of weeks.
"One of the camp days in June," he said, of the four-day camp session from June 19th-22nd. "Probably two days."
Ford is not currently ranked by Scout Recruiting.
