    Irish Sports Daily Texas RB Keith Ford has committed to Oklahoma. Had #NotreDame on his short list. Makes Ty Isaac's visit today even more important.

    I'm happy we got Ford, but Texas absolutely murders us in in-state recruiting.

    Ah so, mutha fucka.

    I read somewhere that he is considered the best RB prospect to come out of Texas since Peterson. That's pretty high praise.

    I LOL'd! If that was the case he would be a unanimous 5* recruit by all the recruitung sites (All the sites have him about a mid 4* recruit). He is the best True RB in the state of Texas for 2013, though. But he's not as good the 5* RBs that came outta Texas the last couple of years (Johnathen Gray, Trey Williams and Malcolm Brown.)

    Guess whoever wrote it didn't know what they were talking about then. The article talked about how his school has only played football for two years and has only graduated one senior class thus far. It may have been the author's opinion and not based on recruiting rankings.

    Essentially they were speculating that since his teams were made up almost exclusively of underclassmen in high school that he didn't have the help that say a Malcolm Brown would have had at Steele.

    It will be interesting to see how his recruiting rank is adjusted this year. His team is likely to be a lot better.

    Scout just re-did their ranking for the top 250, Ford is a 5* and the #2 RB in the nation. As the year goes on, Rivals and Espn will be saying the same. The guy is every bit as good as the players you listed.

    I agree with you. He is every bit as good as Gray or Brown at Texas. Like you said he is just as high as a recruit on scout, being a 5 star and the 14th ranked player in the nation and 247sports has him at the highest rated 4 star and 18th ranked player in nation. As well as 2nd best back as well in their 13 class, but said he will possibly be a 5 star when his season gets going in the fall. Rivals has him as the most underated and they know the same thing he will be one of the top 3 backs on their site as well. I will be suprised to see what ESPN has him at when their 150 comes out. Ole Tom Lugy is the biggest I mean the BIGGEST Texas shorthorn supporter I have ever seen and its rediculous. When you see a shorthorn commit go from 30th best player to 2nd best in espnu 150 its becomes a total joke. Sterling Shepard did nothin but wow people and drop all season. Anyways he has something personal against OU and that is why you see OU recruits drop all year and shorthorn recruits rise every damn year. Watch he will either drop or not be ranked where he should be is all I am saying. Tuck Fom Lugy

    You are correct, sir. The same thing happened to Kameel Jackson's ratings, but that was mitigated by the fact that he was hurt his senior year. But as a junior, he was rated right behind Metoyer and Jay Norvell wanted him badly and got an early commitment from KJ.

    I think that we should temper our outrage against the strong possibility that this bias works in our favor in the long run. Our recruits are under-rated, the whorns' recruits are over-rated and when we beat them, it makes our players and coaches look even better. Believe me that is noticed more than who won the February rankings.

    Moreover, their players are judged by the League to be soft and under-coached, which also works in our favor.

    So let's see, 2013 RBs will include Finch, Clay, Williams, Smith, Ross and I'm probably forgetting someone else.

    Is Ford the type that can play immediately or does he red-shirt?

    He is the type of player that can play early and often as long as he works hard and stays in shape.

    The kid is a beast so far. And being from the Houston area, he probably is the real deal!

    Seems like just yesterday that some guy was dogging Gundy.

    He's just like Jackie Shipp. Both can recruit and coach; moreover, they are happy with their present positions. Glad we have them both.

    The man can coach and recruit his ass off. On the flip-side, even if he paid, I wouldn't drink a beer with him.

    I've dogged Gundy for being an ****. Never said he should not be on staff or was a bad recruiter.

    He already has a Bama offer and Bama already has their running back, I think he is ours.

    I was about to post the same thing.....reminds me of DM7. And it looks like he already has good vision downfield and uses his blockers well. Hope he sticks with his commitment to OU. Welcome aboard, Keith.

    I would say more of a Garrison Hearst or LaDainian Tomlinson type of back.

    I think they wanted him but they are pretty set with what they have. The kid is actually from Florida so he has no burning desire to be a whorn. At OU most likely he would have a chance to start by year two in almost any scenario.

    So he doesn't redshirt in 2013? Plays, but just doesn't start?

    We should have three seniors in 2013 at RB. That should be sufficient to redshirt him if need be. However, if he is as good or better than what we have, put him out there some as a frosh.

    I also read where his school just started football about the time he got there from Florida and they didn't have a lot of help for this kid so he isn't coming from a program like Jenks or Union.
    It sounds like he did a lot of his damage on his own.

    Texas only wants guys that will commit 5 seconds after getting an offer. If they don't commit then, then they were never really offered.

    It looks like Ford has offers from some good programs. Anyone know why the whorns didn't offer him?
