Junior quarterback Andrew Ford of Camp Hill (Pa.) Cedar Cliff enjoyed a very impressive season last fall, and in the process took several visits. Everything is now coming together for Ford as he recently picked up his first two offers and may be in line to pick up several more in the near future.
"Right after the college football regular season ended, coaches were coming in every day, and that continued after the bowls ended and up until this week," said Ford. "My coach, Coach Cantafio, said that my recruiting would really pick up and it certainly did."
Ford's first two offers recently arrived from Temple and Massachusetts.
"It was great to get my first one from Temple because they came to watch me throw the day before they offered, so it felt awesome to know that I earned it," said Ford. "And I built a very solid relationship with Coach Molnar when he was at Notre Dame. He came to see me throw when he was there, so when he got the head coaching job at UMass he said that I was his number one guy. That meant a lot to me."
Besides these two schools, Ford also mentioned that Connecticut, Rutgers, Virginia, Michigan State, Penn State, Duke, Northwestern and Tennessee have all been showing increased interest in recent weeks.
After taking several visits during the fall, Ford is now beginning to piece together his winter and spring visit schedule.
"Nothing official yet, but I will be attending practices when they start up soon," said Ford, who mentioned that he will look into attending a few camps too. He has also been invited to the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour.
