Miller Safrit/ESPN.comOklahoma RB commit Keith Ford has been turning heads at the Under Armour practices and could make an immediate impact with the Sooners in 2013.
This week’s question: ESPN 150 running back commit Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas/Ranch) has been impressive this week at the Under Armour practices. When will he make an impact at OU?

Brandon Chatmon: I have a feeling Keith Ford will make a bigger impact as a freshman than most people believe. Sure the Sooners are stacked at running back, sure they don't need him to step in and play right away. But I don't think that will deter Ford, who will step on campus and start impressing immediately. He's not going to rise past everyone and become the starter, but I see him forcing his way onto the field and earning carries as a freshman.
