Ferrell's Stock Continues To Rise

A popular stop among college coaches this fall has been Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor. Kevin Ferrell is the main attraction and interest in his basketball talents continue to pick up.

With the lack of true point guards in the class of 2012 college coaches are swarming each and every highly regarded lead guard prospect.

Among that group is Kevin Ferrell. Known by most as "Yogi," the 5-foot-11 guard built his reputation on the circuit playing with Indiana Elite. As the spring and summer progressed he kept getting better.

"I started off slow, but as things went on I played better," Ferrell said. " My best tournament was in Las Vegas. I was just being a point guard and a distributor."

This past week in Indianapolis with Tom Crean and an assistant coach from Miami looking on, Ferrell showed the full package.

A tough, hard-nosed guard, Ferrell attacked the basket, showed off a terrific mid-range pull-up and ran his team during an intrasquad scrimmage. His long-range shot is much improved and incredibly consistent.

"I've been in the gym just shooting on the gun," Ferrell told Scout.com. "Every day I've been shooting on the gun. That's the number one thing I've been trying to work on before the season starts."

To go with interest from Indiana and Miami, Ferrell has garnered looks from Butler, Notre Dame, Purdue, Washington, Virginia, Michigan, Florida and Florida.

Ferrell, a four-star prospect, has taken a handful of visits to Indiana recently, including a trip to Bloomington (Ind.) this past weekend. He's also taken an unofficial visit to Butler.

"Me and my dad sat down and decided that maybe after next summer [I'm going to decide]," Ferrell said.

Ferrell is ranked No. 36 overall and the No. 4 point guard in the class of 2012.
