Shrine Bowl DL Poona Ford of Hilton Head again pulled the plug on a USC visit this week, the second time he has canceled a trip to Columbia after saying he would visit.
After the first time earlier this month, his coach BJ Payne said Ford just didn't want to go to USC and realized that he was trying to please others rather than make a decision for himself.
This time, Payne says its basically the same story.
"Poona took a couple of days to think and he decided it wasn't the school for him," Payne said. "He truly wasn't interested in continuing his career there."
Ford has taken an official visit to Texas and Longhorn coach Charlie Strong is expected to visit him next week. As for now, Ford's plans for this weekend are up in the air. He could move his Missouri visit up from next weekend or he could trip to Purdue. Ford camped at Purdue last summer and four of their coaches have known him for a while from recruiting him for different schools.
Missouri visited with Ford and Purdue is scheduled to be in Thursday. Texas plans to have its recruiter in on Friday.
