Mickey Plyler on Ford: "He is as fast as any player Clemson has signed including Tye Hill, Airese Currie and Jerry Butler and maybe ever faster than those guys. Ford will be involved in kick returns, play wide receiver and maybe a little running back. Any time you beat Southern Cal you feel like you got a pretty good player."
Reminds Plyler of: Airese Currie
Ford on Clemson: “I felt like it was the best place for me. They have a lot of ways to get me the ball. I felt real comfortable on my visit. I had a great host in La’Donte Harris. We hung out a lot, and had a real good time.”
