It looks like three-star defensive end Marques Ford (6-foot-4, 235 pounds, Gibsonston, FL) has made a decision, and it doesn’t involved the multiple SEC offers he has.

247Sports did have Ole Miss as the favorite, but now Ford is East Carolina’s highest rated recruit of the 2017 class. The Pirates aren’t high on recruiting boards, but the addition puts them as the fifth ranked team in the AAC.
