East Bay’s Ford picks Tennessee


East Bay High senior defensive lineman Marques Ford has verbally committed to Tennessee.

The 6-foot-4, 230 pound defensive end announced his decision on Twitter on Saturday.

As a junior, Ford had 67 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks for the Indians, who won third first playoff game in school history and captured the program’s first district title in 40 years.

Ford’s top three choices were Duke, Rutgers and Tennessee, East Bay coach Frank LaRosa said.
