Wide receiver/defensive back Deon Ford (6-0, 196, 4.5) from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., is being recruited for his talents on both sides of the football. Since spring rolled around Ford picked up three offers.
Ford was an all-league selection after catching 24 passes for 400 yards while averaging 16.6 yards per catch and five touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball Ford racked up 56 tackles, seven breakups, three fumble recoveries, three sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception.
Ford has received offers from Arizona, Washington, and San Diego State. All three offers came in May.
Ford has received phone calls from Kansas, Boise State, Nevada, UTEP and Colorado State.
"I'm going to take an unofficial visit to Washington on June 29th," Ford said. "I will take part in Washington's one-day camp while I'm there."
"I will also visit Arizona this weekend (June 10th)," Ford said. "I will also attend Arizona's one-day camp on June 11th."
"All three schools that have offered me have the edge over all the other schools that are recruiting me," Ford said. "I don't think I will make an early decision. I plan to make my announcement on December 15th. December 15th is my birthday and I want to know what school I'm going to attend by the New Year."
"I'm open to every school," Ford said. "Most of my family wants me to stay on the West Coast, but I'm open to go anywhere."
"A lot of the schools that are recruiting me are in a bond about what position they want to play me at," Ford said. "It doesn't matter to me where I play, I'm an athlete."
