The Alabama Crimson Tide have landed a top running back in the class of 2018, as Florida’s Jerome Ford tweeted Sunday that he was committing to the Tide.
I want to thank all my family, friends and coaches who’ve supported me and helped me get this far. After 4 years playing for Armwood High School I would like to announce that I’m taking my talents to Tuscaloosa. #RTR #813 pic.twitter.com/vydeqjgWYx— THE ONE (@_Romie1) December 17, 2017
