QB Riley Ferguson Profile
As a sophomore at Butler High School [Matthews, N.C.], the first-year starter threw for 2,899 yards and 24 touchdowns. The Bulldog is a long-time lean towards the Tigers.
"It's just something about it," Ferguson told CUTigers.com. "I just wanted to go down there and see how the camp was. I want to try to get to Clemson as much as I can, because I love Clemson."
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound quarterback last visited Clemson for the Orange and White spring game. He was in town with two classmates, defensive end Peter Kalambayi and wide receiver Uriah LeMay.
During the camp stop in Clemson, which Kalambayi also made, Ferguson spoke with offensive coordinator Chad Morris and recruiter of note, tight ends/special teams coordinator Danny Pearman.
"They were just talking to me about playing. They were helping me out with fundamentals, because the spread offense, coach Morris was teaching me little details on the spread," Ferguson said. "And they were talking to me about coming to games."
Morris spent plenty of time coaching up Ferguson during the two practices they had together.
"If I messed up, [Morris] would just help me out on little things, like footwork, because the footwork is different in the pro-style, it's more shotgun," Ferguson said. "You take quick steps to throw the ball faster, to get it out of your hand."
Clemson, LSU, Michigan and Virginia Tech have offered.
"Clemson has everything. I don't even know. Clemson is my favorite right now. I'm just talking to everybody right now," Ferguson said.
Is there any kind of list behind Clemson?
"I just know I like Clemson a lot. I just know I don't have an order. I don't even know. I'm going to narrow it down later," Ferguson said.
Aside from some 7-on-7 events with Butler, he has no other plans for camps or visits.
Much love for the Clemson Tigers
