Terrance Ferguson, 5-star forward recruit, has committed to the Arizona Wildcats. This comes after Ferguson was committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Terrance Ferguson, a 5-star recruit and the No. 5 small forward in the 2016 class, has announced his commitment to Arizona, according to Scout.com.
Ferguson is the fourth commit to join the Wildcats’ 2016 class, along with fellow five-star prospects Kobi Simmons, Rawle Alkins, and Lauri Markkanen. Arizona now has one of the top incoming classes in all of college basketball – ranked No. 3 in the nation.
Standing at 6-foot-7-inches and 185 pounds, it’s Ferguson’s elite shooting ability and athleticism that puts him at the top of his class. His dynamic scoring prowess was put on display at the McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago, where he drained seven three pointers, setting a new record for the event.
Ferguson originally committed to Alabama, but reopened his recruitment in early March. He played with Sean Miller in the FIBA U19 World Championships last summer and is very familiar with the Arizona head coach’s system.
Among the other schools showing interest in Ferguson were Baylor, Kansas, Maryland, North Carolina, and N.C. State. According to Scout, Ferguson says he knew Arizona was the school for him after just a few conversations with Miller.
