Chattahoochee sophomore shooting guard Erika Ford knows what she wants in two years, and apparently doesn’t have a procrastinating bone in her 5-foot-9 body. She has committed to play for Georgia, according to her coach, Eric Herrick.
“She always wanted to be a Bulldog, she wanted to stay close to home and so she figured why not get it out of the way now,” Herrick said.
Ford averaged 24 points, eight rebounds and three assists for Chattahoochee. Her commitment, of course, isn’t binding, but Herrick doesn’t expect anything to change her mind i
n the next two years.
“They saw her play, although I don’t think they were there to see her,” the coach said. “They started contacting me and she made several unofficial visits and saw several games and they built a relationship.”
