"I committed to Northwestern." Joseph Ferguson said. "I need to make some phone calls to tell the other coaching staffs that I've made my decision.

My visit this past weekend went great. Roger Jordan was my host. Zak Kustok is graduating and it seems like a pretty good quarterback situation. I also visited Purdue and Missouri.

I had January visits set up with Notre Dame and Kansas State but I'm going to cancel them."

Joseph Ferguson is a three-year starter, four-year letter winner that was named all state in 2001.

Ferguson has blazing 4.37 speed in the 40 and he has a strong arm and is also very accurate with his passes.

Tony Stauss will probably be the starting quarterback for the Wildcats next season with Brett Basanez backing him up.

Ferguson is a terrific athlete that may be too good to take a red shirt. Joseph may be able to help immediately at wide receiver, defensive back or on special teams.

Ferguson had 700 yards passing, 650 yards rushing and a combined 32 touchdowns in 2001.
