by Andy Hilton, recruit804
We have the #1 athlete in our recruitNoVA Fab 30 hitting the field tonight.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in Northern Virginia. Continuing our countdown as the second best senior prospect region-wide is North Stafford running back Devyn Ford.
#1 Devyn Ford (2019 RB 5-11 180) – North Stafford High School
Devyn Ford made it known earlier this month that his goal is to break the 7,000 rushing yard mark in his high school career.
Ford is already over 5,000 rushing yards. In his junior season, he carried the ball 246 times for 2,056 yards and 32 touchdowns. His goals are within reach if he can repeat the performance from his junior season.
He has a shot at propelling his North Stafford team to a deep playoff run this fall.
Earlier in the summer, he pledged his verbal commitment to Penn State.
Earlier this month, he explained how his commitment frees him up to focus on his senior season.
“(Getting my recruitment done) is a lot of weight off my shoulders. I don’t have to go to different colleges and go on different visits. I can just focus on my season,” Ford said. “Penn State is good academics-wise, and Coach Franklin and the coaching staff there have a real family atmosphere.”
