CB Justin Ford reopens recruitment

Kansas University football recruiting

It doesn’t appear Justin Ford will end up joining the Kansas football program after all.

One of the 11 early signees in Les Miles’ first recruiting class this past December, Ford tweeted out a note this week to make known his future plans.

“I will like to announce that I will be reopening my recruitment, looking to transfer out in May,” Ford wrote in a note accompanying his post on Twitter.

That message came on Thursday, a day after KU announced its 2019 signing class and didn’t include Ford, who had previously been publicized as a member of the December signees.

A 3-star junior college cornerback when KU recruited him, Ford, listed at 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, last played at Golden West College (Calif.).
