Ferguson has his eye on two

2015 WR Jazz Ferguson already has an impressive offer list. Considering he's only a rising junior, you can expect that sheet to continue growing as he hits the camp circuit this summer. But there are two programs in particular he wants to hear from in the coming months — LSU and Alabama.

ST. FRANCISVILLE — 2015 WR Jazz Ferguson already has more than a dozen offers, including two from SEC schools.

But there are two programs not on his list he hopes to add in the coming months — Alabama and LSU.

"I just want to get those offers so I can make a decision on National Signing Day my senior year," Ferguson said. "I could wait that long. I'm not in any hurry."

But Ferguson isn't just limiting himself to those two schools. He and his brother, 2014 DE/OLB Jay Ferguson, will hit the camp circuit hard this summer. Jazz plans to camp at both LSU and Alabama, as well as some eastern schools like Florida and Georgia.

"Coming into this, I didn't know schools would be showing this much interest," Ferguson said. "I'm just going to let it grow."

The direction he'd like to see his offer list head is clearly toward the SEC.

But Ferguson doesn't deny the appeal of playing for the home-state school. LSU has always been his team-of-choice, and he said an offer from them would be huge.

"They've been showing interest but they haven't offered yet," Ferguson said. "I'm going to go to camp in July and see if they offer me. I've liked LSU since I was younger…I like Coach [Frank] Wilson [his lead recruiter]. He came to our campus just to talk to us."

Ferguson also admits that an offer from Alabama would help bring his recruitment to an elite level, and the Tide are another early favorite because of his relationship with Burton Burns.

"I talk to [Alabama] a good bit, but not as much as LSU," Ferguson said. "Coach Burns came to one of our spring practices. He's cool. We talk a lot. He just wants to get us up there for a visit."

Ferguson said he could see his recruitment boiling down to those two schools, assuming they both offer. Considering that he's a 6-foot-5, 210-pound wide receiver that can run a 22-second 200-meter dash, it's likely LSU, Alabama and many other major programs will come calling.

But if it's only down to the Tigers and Tide, Ferguson said the West Feliciana community wouldn't steer him a certain way.

"It's like 50 percent Alabama, 50 percent LSU," Ferguson said. "I don't know [why there are so many Alabama fans here]. They have a good sports program. I'll give it to them. I guess that's why."
