DITR: Jamari Ford

Jamari Ford is a class of 2023 RB for Miami Northwestern High School in Miami, FL. He is 5’8, weighs 169lbs, and runs a 4.4 40. Jamari has excellent field vision and pairs that with a dangerous and effective dead leg. Do not let his size fool you; although he’s a shifty player, he also knows how to drop his shoulders and run through someone. Jamari can do it all; he has great hands, can catch out of the backfield, line up in the slot, and return kicks.
