Wide receiver Deon Ford (6-0, 196, 4.5) from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., surely passed the look test when he attended the Rivals.com Junior Day last month.
Ford was an all-league selection in 2005 after hauling in 24 receptions for 400 yards and five touchdowns while averaging 16.6 yards per catch.
The impressive thing about Ford's stats was the ball was only thrown to him 29 times.
"One ball was throw over my head," Ford said. "While the other two were tough catches to make, but I should have made the play."
Ford has good size and is very agile with good body control. He also has good strength that he uses to fend off defenders to get the football.
Ford also has good bloodlines his cousin is former Rancho Cucamonga teammate and Arizona bound cornerback Devin Ross. He grew up in Los Angeles and playing football with his very good friend, Cal bound Darian Hagan from Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw.
Things are beginning to look pretty promising on the recruiting front.
According to Ford; San Diego State, Colorado and Colorado State could have offers for him very soon. He is also being recruited by USC and Cal.
Cal has been recruiting Ford since his sophomore season and he recently attended USC's junior day.
"I enjoyed USC's junior day," Ford said. "I love the atmosphere at USC and I really love Coach Pete Carroll."
"I like how USC goes about things," Ford said. "Especially their game preparation."
What is Ford looking for in a college?
"I want to go to a school where I'm going to be comfortable for the next four years," Ford said. "It is a very big step to take."
"It doesn't really matter what school I go to," Ford said. "I just want to go to college and get a good education. Going to college has been a goal of mine that I set a long time ago."
