Junior Nathan Tilford, expected to be one of the Inland Valley’s most sought after recruits next season, has transferred from Upland to Colony, Titans coach Steve Randall confirmed.
Randall wouldn’t elaborate further except to say Tilford has enrolled. The school is going through the paperwork process that comes with a transfer.
Tilford, a 6-foot-3, 195-pounder, ran for 887 yards and 12 touchdowns on just 106 carries last year for the Highlanders. Coach Tim Salter used Tiflord and senior Darreyon Jones in the backfield.
Tilford has also played some linebacker.
Tilford has been an impact player since his freshman year, even drawing a scholarship offer from USC as an eighth-grader.
