Ford Earns Tech Offer

Cameron Ford

6'3 1/2, 215-pound South Carolina wide receiver Cameron Ford attended Virginia Tech's camp this past weekend and came away with some good news. After his weekend visit, the Tech coaches verbally offered the South Carolina native.

"He was with Virginia Tech this weekend, the one day senior camp," said Cameron Ford's father, Doug. "That went extremely well. We met with Coach Beamer and Coach Foster afterwards and they told him they would offer. They're looking at him as a linebacker, outside or otherwise and possibly and athlete."

With the Hokies' telling Ford that he will be offered, the wide receiver/linebacker prospect now has several scholarship offers to mull over. "Of course he does have an official offer from N.C. State, the University of Kentucky, and Middle Tennessee State. Georgia Tech has told them they would but want him to come to Atlanta to meet the head coach but they've indicated they'll offer. North Carolina is staying very close to him and communicating. He worked out for Alabama about three weeks ago and that went well. He had a good workout and a good meeting with them. Of course he still gets letters from a lot of schools."

"Things have firmed up for him in the past 30 days," Mr. Ford continued. "I'm not sure when Cameron wants to make a decision, if it's before football or a few games into the season, but I think he likes the idea of being in the ACC and a lot N.C. State and Virginia Tech bring a lot to the table. Their programs are excellent and facilities are great."

Ford will likely make his decision in the near future and may also enroll at the school of his choice in January. "One of the things he's looking at which he's talked to N.C. State and Virginia Tech is that he can graduate in December and enroll in January. That way he can get a semester head start and do spring practice, getting accustomed to the coaches, their terminology, and get a little bit of a jump. That puts you a little bit ahead of the other freshmen coming in."

Ford, who has no other unofficial visits set up at this point other than a potential trip to Georgia Tech, will begin his senior season on the 18th of August when he and his T.L. Hanna teammates face off with Hillcrest. Recommended Stories
