Texas standout Terrance Ferguson is considered one of the best small forwards in the country and ranks No. 16 among all players in the Class of 2016.
But Ferguson has taken a break from the recruitment to participate on the U.S. team for the U-19 World Championships in Greece.
”It’s a blessing for me,” Ferguson said. “Not too many kids in my position get an opportunity like this, so I am really excited and taking advantage of it.
”It’s going to really help my game improve.”
The 6-foot-6 Ferguson has a plethora of offers and confirmed to Cardinal Authority even with the commitment of V.J. King that Louisville is “definitely still in the mix,” in his recruiting process.
U of L, Kansas and Oklahoma State were unofficial visits Ferguson took during last season, while other schools in the mix include Arizona, Arkansas, Baylor, Texas, Texas A&M, Virginia, Wake Forest, Oklahoma, SMU and others.
”I went to Louisville (on a visit) and had a great time,” Ferguson said. “I like Louisville and it’s one of the places I want to look hard at.”
Ferguson said he would likely narrow his list at the end of the summer and expects to make five official visits in the fall.
And as far as King, there’s no fretting about him at U of L by Ferguson.
”I like his game,” Ferguson said of King. “We can play together.”
