Bulls land big forward

Bulls head coach Reggie Witherspoon continues to build the basketball program after receiving a verbal commitment from high school senior Xavier Ford.

Ford will play out his final year at Harrison High School and is a candidate for the Mr. Basketball award in his home state of Colorado. At 6-foot-8-inches, Ford is a small forward who can provide scoring and defensive depth for the Bulls when he joins the team for the '11-'12 season.

According to Scout.com, Ford is one of the most athletic players in the region and has extremely good length. The scouting report also indicates that he needs to work on his jump shot, but that he can attack the basket and finish well.
