McCord to Montana

Trip was enough to seal the deal for Maryvale's McCord

Phoenix (AZ) Maryvale CB Mike McCord has informed via text message that he made his college commitment today.

He tells us, "I committed to Montana."

McCord made his trip on Thursday and it didn't take long to make up his mind.

He told in a previous interview, "They are always in the top of 1AA. They have no NFL team (in Montana) so they get big crowds."

Other schools that expressed interest were Idaho and Idaho State but neither offered.

MCord (6-0/180/4.4) becoems the Grizzlies third commitment from the Grand Canyon State as fullback Dan Moore from Marana (AZ) Mt. View and safety Mike Cummings from Scottsdale (AZ) Chaparral pledged previously.

McCord played quarterback and cornerback for the Panthers but Montana envisions him as a corner because of his "good feet" according to McCord.

On the year he recorded 82 tackles and 2 INTs and was named his region's offensive and two-way player of the year.
