Ferguson to announce Monday

Florida wide receiver set to make his college announcement on Monday. (Story updated 11 pm Sunday night).

The second part of Justin Ferguson's journey to become a college football player is set to play out on Monday.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound wide receiver from Pembroke Pines (FL) Flanagan High School has narrowed his list down to two programs he feels can give him the tools needed for success.

Florida caught Ferguson's eye following a Junior Day visit as he was impressed with the Gators facilities, campus and education system.

Notre Dame saw Ferguson visit during their spring game in mid April and that impression pushed up his timeline to make a decision.

Justin told Irish Eyes following his visit he had set a timeline to make his commitment sometime between November and January. However, following the visit he seemed ready to move things up.

"Because of my visit, I am thinking about committing early, like real soon. However, I want to make sure about the feelings I am having and know my decision is not being based on just the hype from being there. So I want to see how I feel next week and if I still have the same feelings. If I do, I will think about committing."

That was Justin on April 17, as Justin stressed Notre Dame had moved to the top of his list.

While many feel strongly Justin is ready to pledge to the Irish, one never knows until the announcement is made.

Justin confirmed with Irish Eyes by text message he still plans on making his decision known on Monday.


The Miami Herald reported Sunday night that Ferguson will commit to Notre Dame.
