Ford comfortable with Gundy

Not always the most talkative OU commit, Cypress (Texas) Ranch running back Keith Ford wants everybody to know he is still fully committed to the Sooners.

Ford’s quiet attitude has led to some rumors being spread about him looking around. He said any rumors at this point do nothing but make him laugh.

“My mind is set on being a Sooner," he said. "Nobody can change that."

One big reason why is because of the relationship he has developed with running backs coach Cale Gundy. When Ford visited the campus in November, one thing that stood out was getting to meet Gundy’s family. He knew right then it was all about family, the Sooner family at OU. Nothing has changed since his first visit. And as Ford has talked more with Gundy, he sees something else in his future coach.
