Ford Enters NBA Draft

May 14, 2001

Looking to test the market for his services, University of Houston freshman center Alton Ford applied to be included as an early entry in the 2001 NBA Draft.

Ford, who averaged 10.8 points and 5.9 rebounds during his freshman season at Houston, is one of 58 early entries in this year's draft.

"Alton is like the rest of the early entries who have made themselves available for the NBA Draft," Houston head coach Ray McCallum. "He wants to test the market and see where they might project him as a player.

"He does not intend to hire an agent, so he could return to school if he withdraws his name from Draft before June 20 and pays for any of his expenses if he is invited to the NBA pre-Draft camp.

I wish him and his family well."

Ford was named to the freshman All-American fourth team by Bob Gibbons' All-Star Sports and to the Conference USA all-freshman team by a panel of C-USA coaches and media representatives.

He was a McDonald's high school All-American at Houston's Milby High School after averaging 23.5 points, 15.4 rebounds and 2.8 blocked shots per game as a senior.

The NBA pre-draft camp will be June 4-8 in Chicago.
