BREAKING: Bulls247 has learned that USF SLOT/RB Johnny Ford will NOT play against Wisconsin on Friday night.https://t.co/ywC7gZQ2Fh— Bulls247.com (@Bulls247) August 30, 2019
The sophomore came into the season looking to become a utility player getting snaps at both wide receiver and running back during fall camp. Last season, in the #HBDive offense, Ford was able to find a groove getting 6.8 yards per carry, 787 yards, and eight touchdowns. He got a few snaps at receiver, recording a touchdown reception against UCF.
USF will look to use walk-on Bryce Miller, Michigan transfer Eddie McDoom in the slot, as well as running backs Jordan Cronkrite and Trevon Sands to replace him.
