HORRY COUNTY, SC - Carolina Forest senior Chris Ford signed with Western Oklahoma State College Tuesday. The Pioneers offered him a full-athletic scholarship for his basketball skill.
Though classified as a post the 6-foot-4-inch senior averaged just shy of a double-double with 15 points and nine rebounds per game with the Panthers. After helping to lead his team to the post season Ford earned All-State honors.
Head coach Brian Brunson said Ford was strong offensively and defensively but was most critical in turning the basketball program at Carolina Forest around.
