In his two seasons with the Crimson Tide, Ford rushed for 151 yards and three touchdowns. He also caught two passes for 11 yards. He appeared in four games in 2019 including a start in the Chick-fil-A kickoff against Duke where he had 10 carries for 60 yards and a touchdown.
Ford becomes the first player to transfer from Alabama in 2020 after the team lost eight scholarship players to the transfer portal last season.
Those players include quarterbacks Jalen Hurts (Oklahoma) and Layne Hatcher (Arkansas State), defensive lineman Antonio Alfano (Colorado), linebacker Eyabi Anoma (Houston), tight end Kedrick James (SMU), offensive lineman Richie Petitbon (Illinois), defensive back Kyriq McDonald and long snapper Scott Meyer (Vanderbilt).
