Has Ford taken Clay Travis' place?

Asked if fans could expect to see him in a Commodore uniform, he replied: “Tell them to Anchor Down.”

I can understand players going to Bama, UGA, or Michigan but Vandy is a bottom feeder.
Or he might care more about academics then football

Peters had the infamous, "mr. Fortenberry, tell the tennessee fans they have nothing to worry about." Quote, about three minutes before committing to Arkansas though

While the Tennessean is a hot piece of garbage, Lockridge got those quotes from Ford himself. The Tennessean isn't the source here, Ford is. They're just relaying the information to their readers.

I take what Ford says very lightly though. He seems to tell everyone what they want to hear. Which is understandable because he's likely a kid being pulled in every conceivable direction.

This has the feel of a kid who truly has no idea where he wants to be for the next three or four years of his life yet. He's saying the things he is supposed to say right now and will commit to whatever school he believes is the best fit for him.

Lots of kids like him are thrust into this type of situation and aren't used to it. He's from Podunk Alabama and is probably not used to the attention. I don't think this will end until he signs, regardless of what he says.

Exactly, I feel sorry for the kid but it's the trade-off that comes with playing football and trying to make it your career.

His family has requested that they have some time to go over things and get settled back home before Johnathan does a bunch of interviews. Johnathan said he and his family had to talk about things. He said he was unsure about visiting Auburn this coming weekend and he doesn't have his schedule yet of what day coaches are coming in to see him.

We will follow up with him tomorrow.
