    Mike Ford
    Sarasota (FL)
    Height: 6-foot-2
    Weight: 200 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.5 seconds

    Ford's height is listed at 6'0" with a 40 time of 4.5 by both Rivals and The Insiders but in a Rivals article they claim he is 6'2" and has run a 4.3 40. Academics are a big question mark but Ford's coach hopes by August a lot of those questions will be answered . Ford has been hearing from Ohio State along with schools like LSU, Auburn and Louisville. He ran for 1100 yards as a junior and will be the feature back on his team this fall.

    A player to keep an eye on is Mike Ford. He is from Sarasota and could be a great addition to the Buckeye family. At 6-2 200, he runs a 10.7 100 on the track and a 4.3 40. Plays rb and db. One problem is his grades, which is the reason for no offers. Coaches from tOSU were here to meat with his coach earlier this summer. He lists the florida schools and the Buckeyes as favorites. Could be a sleeper.

    The Buckeyes are still recruiting Ford. Coach Tressel visited twice during the spring but haven't been back yet this fall. He already has over 1,000 yards and 13 touchdowns this year.

    This Kids Name Was Brought Up On Espn Radio This Morning. Dickie V. Was Doing A Segment On Mike And Mike This Morning, And He Called Out Tom Lemming For Not Having Him On His Top 25 Rb List. I Don't Know How Much Weight I Put Into Dickie V's Football Evaluation, But I Thought It Was Interesting.

    StoRMinBrutus Great 2 B A Buckeyes !!!

    Sorry if I missed it but how have his grades come along? He sure seems like a quality back? He could grow into a good back at OSU. I like that they say he can drop his shoulders as well stiff arm opponents and run right past people. ]

    If thats true that he has run a 4.3 -40 ... WOW for his size that's sweet.

    I don't believe he is fully qualified yet. I think that is why some schools (tOSU) have held back their offer.
