Ferguson Emerges As One Of The Best In 2010

Dominique Ferguson was great this past weekend at the Circle City Classic and following his game he spoke with Scout.com about his play and the recruiting process.

DeShaun Thomas is being touted as the next big thing out of the state of Indiana, and while it's clear that Thomas is quite a talent, there's another prospect in Indiana that deserves some attention too.

Dominique Ferguson, a standout at Indianapolis (In.) Lawrence North, is a 6-foot-9, 200-pound forward that has as much, if not more, potential than any prospect in the 2010 class.

He's equipped with a 7-foot-5 wing span, is capable of hitting jumpers and is impressive on the block. This past weekend at the Circle City Classic, Ferguson showed his inside-outside game.

"Before I came [to Lawrence North] my position was on the wing, but I got a little more comfortable inside because it's a lot easier to score in the low post in high school because everybody is shorter," Ferguson said.

"If I do have someone big and slow on me I can take them to the high post and shoot over them or drive by them," he continued. "I pretty much have an inside-out game, it's pretty easy."

College coaches are certainly taking notice of Ferguson's game. Ohio State assistant John Groce was in Indianapolis this past weekend checking him out. He's also heard from Wake Forest, Indiana, Purdue, Illinois and Kentucky

"Everybody is pretty equal right now," Ferguson said. "Nobody has offered yet."

Scout.com's 8th ranked prospect in the class of 2010, who seems to be wide open, said that he'd like to be recruited to play on the wing and in the post.

"I hope they recruit me to play the wing," Ferguson said. "I want to be able to play inside and out because I want to be a player that is a versatile player that everybody has to look out for."
