    Travion Ford ready to reconnect with Ohio State
    After missing four games in his junior season because of Missouri’s over-the-top transfer rules, it’s easy to understand why some have seemingly forgotten St. Louis 4-star defensive end Travion Ford.

    Ford says his absence from the spotlight was one-half transfer related and one-half related to the focus of him and his teammates.

    “My junior year was awesome, even though I missed four games,” Ford told Lettermen Row. “I still was able to lead the team with 10 sacks and I was voted as All-State, All-Conference first team. Our Lutheran North squad won the State Championship for the first time since 1999. We’ve got big things happening at Lutheran North.

    “My teammates at Lutheran North were very focused on a State Championship so I didn’t do much with recruiting. A lot of our games were held on Saturdays which made it impossible for me to really attend games. As long as the coaches haven’t forgotten me it’s all good. The film speaks for itself.”

    Now, the 6-foot-4, 222-pound Ford is in the middle of basketball season and will turn his focus to recruiting again with the return of spring. On the agenda is a return to Ohio State where he last visited in March of 2019. He’ll be coming to Columbus with his parents on March 6.

    “Coach Larry Johnson and Coach Kenny Anunike are great coaches,” Ford said. “We talk on the phone and text and always have good conversation. It’s going to be great to be at the spring practice to get a close up glimpse of how it goes down. The value in making this visit is high. I will have a lot more one-on-one time on this visit. We’re building a great relationship.”

    FORD TO VISIT
    Lutheran North (Mo.) High School defensive end Travion Ford visited Ohio State last March, and approximately a year later, the 2021 standout will be coming back to Columbus.

    Ford is one of 19 defensive ends holding Buckeye offers for the class of 2021. Ranked as the No. 6 weakside defensive end in the nation, No. 123 overall prospect and No. 3 recruit in the state of Missouri, Ford is one of the Buckeyes' top priorities in the junior cycle.

    Getting Ford on campus is a big step for Ohio State as it looks to fill one of its biggest needs in the 2021 class.
