Nation's No. 2 running back to visit Clemson

Clemson will get a visit from the nation’s number two running back next month when 2019 4-star prospect Devyn Ford makes a trip to the Clemson campus.

It will be the third visit for Ford, who first visited last July and then was on hand for Clemson’s thrilling victory over Louisville last October.

Despite being a 2019 prospect, the 5-11, 185-pounder already holds 24 offers, and Clemson offered last April. Since then, Ford has been developing a relationship with area recruiter Brent Venables.

“The past couple times he has come to the school I have been really excited to talk to him,” Ford said.

Ford hopes to be on Clemson’s campus on March 4th.

“I would be coming with two of my teammates and my father,” Ford. “I really want to see everything, including the new building. I’ve only seen it when it was under construction, so I’m excited to see what it looks like now.”

Ford said he watched Clemson’s run to the National Championship closely and liked how the Tigers ran their offense and used running back Wayne Gallman.

“I think the offense is very explosive. They run a lot of inside zone which is like my high school,” he said. “I can see myself in that offense. “I like the way they used him so good. Also having Deshaun Watson which was a dual threat, helped them out a lot, too. You weren’t expecting who had the ball, Deshaun or either Wayne. They used Wayne very good with inside zone, and screen plays.”

What is Ford looking for in a school and where does Clemson stand?

“I’m looking for a coach that is going to be completely honest with me,” he said. “I want to know exactly where I’ll stand on the depth chart. Clemson and Ohio St. are recruiting me the hardest but everyone is pretty even for me right now.”

A decision won’t come for a while.

“I think I might do something my junior year,” Ford said. “I’ll probably announce my commitment then, but if I don’t, then I’ll do it mid-season of my senior year.”

Ford is teammates with Clemson 2018 offensive tackle target Nana Asiedu at North Stafford.
