It’s been a pretty up and down last week for Travis Ford.
First he, as one reader put it, played Matlock in the Darrell Williams case.
Then he was left open-palmed and slack jawed at the resulting verdict in the Darrell Williams case.
And somewhere in between those two events, he picked up a massive recruit from North Texas that could be, I guess, a replacement someday for the void Darrell Williams used to fill.
His name is Leyton Hammonds and he had offers from Clemson, Creighton, Houston (screw you, Dickey!1), and most importantly OU.
TexasHoops.com says the following about him:
[He's] wiry and skilled wing, can handle and create, nice mid-range stroke, has size to finish in traffic, good passer, versatile player.
Hammonds isn’t a huge get like Smart and Nash were for Ford, but he’s the kind of guy Ford needs to complement his stars 2.
He’s also the kind of guy that I feel like would go average 15 a game in Ames and will probably end up transferring from OSU within 24 months. I hope not, but what evidence do I have of the contrary right now?
Also this dunk…it iz gooooood.
