JUCO transfer strengthens Bronco’s Pass Defense in Raymond Ford

Raymond Ford comes to the Broncos from Riverside City College. Ford was rated as a three star out of high school and had offers from several Pac-12 schools including Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Nebraska, Utah, UCLA, and Washington State.

He originally selected Cal as his landing spot but was not cleared to play for the Golden Bears.

After a two year stint at community college, Ford is ready to play some D-1 football and will give the Broncos some major strength in pass defense. Ford comes in at 6-foot, 175 pounds and also brings with him colligate level playing experience.

In a recent interview with BNN’s own Bryan Nolen, Ford explains how Coach Harsin’s ability to connect with him helped him decide to commit to the Broncos. The DB was impressed with the coaching style of the staff and the recent accomplishments they achieved in just their first year.

While explaining his commitment process to Boise State, Ray stated that he would see people doubting the Broncos and he felt a desire to support them after his telling visit to Boise.

Because of only having two years of eligibility left to play football, Ford is expected to dress and play immediately. When asked to reflect on this, Ray told BNN that he would focused on working hard on and off the field.

“Just show the coaches that they can count on me in any situation. Always allow me to make the big play or do a simple job, not just on the field, but off the field.”

Talking about his expectations, Ford tells Bryan about his three “F’s” “Finish, Family, and last but not least, the Forces of completing the goals you want to complete.” Ray also talks about championship aspirations saying “Winning a championship. I like to show, not talk.”
