Ford named Parade All-American

---UB signee Xavier Ford has been named to the prestigious Parade Magazine All-American Team which will officially be released on Sunday.

Ford, who averaged 27.4 points and 9.7 rebounds for Harrison High in Colorado Springs, Colo., was named to the third team. This is the 55th edition of the team which lists 10 players on four teams and includes recruits who signed with schools such as Kentucky, Duke and Florida among others.

The 6-foot-8, 190-pound Ford is the first Parade honoree ever to sign with UB. Turner Battle, currently an assistant at the school, was a Top 100 prospect nationally when he signed with the Bulls in 2000.
