Ferguson talks game, growing interest

Cardinal Authority caught up with Dallas, Tex., forward Terrance Ferguson during his play at Under Armour Louisville and has the latest on the five-star prospect.

2016 five-star forward Terrance Ferguson was one of the more sought-after prospects at the Under Armour visit in Louisville last weekend and he proved why during his four games in the Derby City.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound prospect from Dallas, Tex., displayed a balanced offensive attack while averaging 15 points an outing over the weekend. With dozens of college coaches filling the stands for each of his games, Ferguson displayed his ability to connect from deep, as well as working in the paint and getting teammates more involved.

He also worked with the ball frequently, running point at times, an area where he continues to focus his improvement.

"Definitely my ball-handling," he explained. "Running the team and running point guard some times. Making plays for my teammates and me, showing that I have more to my game then just being a scorer."

Rated among the nation's top ten prospects in his class by Scout.com, Ferguson's list of college opportunities continues to grow. In addition to the scholarship offer that he received from Louisville last June, Ferguson also holds offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Wake Forest and a number of others.

"Pretty much everyone," he said, with a laugh while attempting to recall the entire list of interested programs.

"Right now I'm just living the process. I'm going to focus on it later on. I still have time."

Ferguson, who made an unofficial visit to Louisville in December, has been impressed by what the chance to become a Cardinal and has built a strong relationship with the coaching staff.

"It's a great school," he told Cardinal Authority. "I talked to Coach Pitino and all their coaches. They have great coaches and players all around. The facilities are awesome and most of them are pretty much new. I had a great time while I was down here."

He currently has no short list, or an exact time when he'd like to make his college choice, but it will likely be in the fall after taking more visits.

"I plan on taking official visits, but I'm not sure when," he said.
