Freshman Ferguson opening eyes

As one of the best shooters in the 2016 class, Terrance Ferguson is opening up eyes with his play so far.

Dallas (Tex.) Prime Prep is absolutely loaded with talent all throughout the program, and their next big star looks to be class of 2016 guard Terrance Ferguson. The 6-foot-4 Ferguson has had an excellent start to his high school career and is already getting major recruiting attention.

"Freshman year has been great," said Ferguson. "I am playing with great players and I am doing good over here. This school is the best fit for me."

Not many have seen Ferguson yet, and though he feels he can do a lot of different things on the court there is one aspect of his game which definitely stands out.

"I'm an athletic person, but my jump shot is my game," said Ferguson. "I can shoot from anywhere."

Recruiting wise things are obviously very early in the process, but already some heavy hitters have shown him attention.

"North Carolina sent me a letter a few days ago, Kansas, Texas Tech, SMU, all of those colleges and a few others have talked to me," noted Ferguson.

The interest from North Carolina is still preliminary, but Ferguson says it is great to hear from the school.

"I was happy, joyful," said Ferguson of the UNC letter. "That one set me off. It is great to get something from North Carolina."

The school that first contacted Ferguson was Kansas, and the Jayhawks are already putting in some serious effort.

"Kansas is a really good school," said Ferguson. "They were my first call, and when they called I was excited and I knew there would be more to come."

SMU made the trip to West Virginia to watch Prime Prep take on Huntington Prep, and the Mustangs are working hard to keep one of Dallas' best home.

"SMU is great," Ferguson noted. "Coach Ulric (Maligi) comes out to support us, and he is great with all the players. SMU is a great school also."

For now recruiting is on the backburner and instead Ferguson is working hard to improve his game.

"I am working on getting stronger so I can go to the hoop more often," he noted.
