A year ago, Ford didn't think he'd be playing football in college, much less in the SEC. But after an evaluation visit from a former Tiger coach as well as a very impressive standout performance at a camp, Ford picked up an offer from Auburn and didn't waste any time accepting it. After committing, he turned from recruit to recruiter and is still doing the same today.

AuburnSports.com spoke with Ford about his recruitment, who he helped recruit to Auburn last year and who he is helping with this year, his goals at Auburn, what position he'll start out at and much more in the next profile story of the 2009 signees.
