We got a chance to catch up with Oklahoma commit Keith Ford (Cypress, Texas/Cypress Ranch) yesterday at the Houston Under Armour Sevens tournament. If you missed it yesterday, here’s a feature on the state’s top running back prospect.

During a talk with his father, Keith Ford Sr., the topic of Texas came up. Why was Texas never a school Ford seriously considered during his recruiting process?

“They didn’t fit at all,” he said. “They did the same things they did with Robert Griffin III, and RGIII’s parents are military too. We’re very forward when it comes to anything in life. I really wasn’t impressed with Texas at all, and Keith wasn’t impressed either.”
