According to Devyn Ford's head coach, Joe Mangano, the 2019 blue-chip North Stafford HS running back will commit prior to his senior season.
"Before we put on pads in August, he will be committed somewhere," Mangano said.
Clemson, North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia Tech are considered frontrunners for Ford's services. But Mangano said Oklahoma and Notre Dame have come on strong recently.
Sooners first-year head coach Lincoln Riley held a face-time session with Ford last month while his team was preparing for the College Football Playoff semifinals, a contest they dropped to Georgia 54-48 on Monday.
Notre Dame running backs coach Autry Denson visited Ford at school last month.
"He literally flew out here and was at our school, then took a flight back to Indiana," Mangano said. "He said he was here to see Devyn and nobody else in the state."
