Justin Ford and Montana had been circling each other for years.

The Griz staff first reached out to and offered the cornerback in 2018, when he was coming off a sophomore season at Golden West College that had him ranked among the top 100 junior-college prospects in the nation.

He didn’t make it to Missoula until 2020. That was after an initial commitment to and de-commitment from Kansas, and an injury-plagued redshirt year at Louisville.

It’s the kind of stuff sitcom relationships are made of — plenty of false starts and bad decisions before, hopefully, the right fit. Sam and Diane. Ross and Rachel.
