LaForce Is A Playmaker In The Deep Patrol

2017 College of the Seqouias S Ron LaForce (6-1, 204) is having a very good season for the Giants and he has started to see things pick up on the recruiting front over the past few weeks...

So far this season, the sophomore leads his team with 51 tackles and five interception while also posting 1.5 sacks, 4.5 tackles-for-loss and a fumble recovery.

"I feel like I am pretty much an all-around player," LaForce told when asked to describe his game. "I can get downhill and play in the box and support the run, but I also feel really comfortable dropping into coverage and playing man-to-man over the slot receiver or outside against the wide receiver or playing as the center fielder where I can read things and come over the top to make a play."

LaForce's story is intriguing. 

He was a standout safety who hailed from Bayou La Batre, Alabama who was a full-qualifier out of high school. 

He didn't get the attention he was looking for, so he opted to go the JUCO route and after a solid freshman season for the Giants in 2014, he opted to sign with West Georgia, but once he arrived at his new home, he realized he'd made a mistake.

"My coaches were saying to me that I should wait, but since I didn't get many looks out of high school, I sorta just took the first one that offered," LaForce recalled. "When I got there, I just realized I had made the wrong decision and I left there pretty quickly.

"I think it was the right decision to get back here and give myself another chance to have other options and so far it's looking like it was the right decision."

LaForce recently got his first FBS offer and more could be on the way.

"I just got an offer from New Mexico State two weeks ago," LaForce said. "I've also been hearing a lot from USCWashingtonLouisiana-MonroeMemphis and a few other schools."

LaForce is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
