Ferguson transfers, has high major suitors

Will Ferguson, a member of Scout.com's 2013 top 100, is on the move. He's headed to a new high school and will start playing at his new school on Friday.

Will Ferguson is making a midseason move.

After starting the season at Arlington (Va.) Bishop O'Connell, Ferguson opted to transfer to Herndon (Va.) High to close out his junior season.

"It was a process that I just decided to transfer over the weekend," the junior point guard told Scout.com.

Due to rules in Virginia, Ferguson is eligible to transfer to a public school and play after three practices. His three practices will be up on Thursday and he'll be eligible to play on Friday.

Ferguson is ranked as top 20 point guard in the 2013 class and is ranked No. 71 overall. A fast and athletic lead guard, Ferguson describes himself as a floor general that creates and defends.

"I just get my teammates involved and get in the paint and score when I need to and I stop the man in front of me," Ferguson said.

Thus far in his junior season, Ferguson has had Clemson, North Carolina, South Carolina, Villanova, St. Joseph, Marquette, St. John's and George Mason in to watch him this year.

However Ferguson is waiting on two schools to five him a look.

"My two favorites schools are Syracuse and Connecticut, but they haven't given me any looks yet."

"They are just guard oriented schools," he added. "Their guards always seem to go to the next level."

Ferguson hasn't taken any recent visits, but did take trips to Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh in the fall.
