Ford checks out Tennessee

March 4, 2013 

DL Poona Ford of Hilton Head made an unofficial visit to Tennessee Saturday. He was joined on the visit by his coach BJ Payne.

"It was very nice," Payne said. "He has an offer there." Ford also has offers from USC, Illinois, Kansas State, Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia Tech, Missouri, Michigan, Louisville and Purdue.

He and his coach had thought about stopping by USC on their way back from Knoxville but didn't. Ford has been favoring USC.

Ford will be going to some combines and plans to visit as many schools as he can in the weeks ahead. Payne said Ford will visit USC again some time during spring practice.

The coach was not sure Ford would visit Clemson since he doesn't have an offer from the Tigers.
