The junior quarterback was in town for Clemson's 38-24 win over Auburn.

"I liked it a lot. It was really loud," he told CUTigers.com. "That's what I want to play in, in an environment like that. Death Valley is something serious,"

Ferguson was one of three Butler prospects on hand for the game. Also there was 2013 wide receiver Uriah LeMay and 2013 running back Josh Glisson.

For Ferguson, it was the Clemson offense that stood out.

"I like how they spread it out, they run the ball even, pass the ball even. They do everything. They spread it out even," he said.

Because of his late arrival, Ferguson was unable to speak with any of the Clemson coaches, but he did speak with tight ends coach/special teams coordinator Danny Pearman before the visit.

Ferguson holds offers from Clemson, LSU, Virginia Tech, Michigan and Louisville.

The junior quarterback once touted the ACC Tigers as his favorite.

"I like them a lot. I'm just going to let every school offer and just make my decision. I like Clemson a lot, I know that, but I'm not sure right now [about a favorite]," he said.

There's no timeline for a decision.

"Whenever I know what school's right for me, I'm going to make my decision," Ferguson said.

Several factors will be under consideration until then.

"How the coaches are with their players, how the education is at the school, how the environment is at the school, how it's going to be, because I'm going to be living there, so I have to be somewhere I like being around," he said.

Ferguson threw for 2,899 yards and 24 touchdowns as a sophomore.
