Ford is a former five-star recruit who was the No. 3-ranked prospect in the state of California for his 2019 recruiting class (per 247 Sports). 2022 was Ford’s most productive season at USC as he appeared in 12 total games, catching 20 passes for 365 yards and two touchdowns.
As a graduate transfer, Ford still has two years of eligibility remaining since he redshirted his freshman year and also got an extra year of eligibility due to the pandemic season. His decision to transfer was likely impacted by the surplus of receiving talent at USC (which also now includes a big name that they just landed from elsewhere in the Pac-12).
