Ferron is a consensus top 15 player in New York State this year. He is 6-foot-4; 235-pound tight end that had 30 catches for 624 yards and 8 touchdown receptions this season.
Q., Why did you decide to commit to Syracuse
University to play football?
It's close to home and my family can come to see me
play. There is also an opportunity for me to play
Q. Why do you think you can play early?
The coaches told me I have an advantage to play early
because I only live 45 minutes away and I can workout
with the team all summer. I plan on doing that.
Q. When did Syracuse first start recruiting you?
They started to become interested in me in the
beginning of my junior year.
Q. What other schools were you looking at?
I had an offer from Wisconsin and interest from Penn State, Wake Forest, and Rutgers.
Q. Did the ACC-Big East dilemma over the past couple
months factor in your decision at all?
At first, I was a little worried about going to the Big
East after Miami and Virginia Tech left, but I talked
to the coaches and they told that with those teams
gone it will only make the road easier for Syracuse to
get a BCS bid. They told me that Syracuse would be at
the top of the Big East now.
Q. When do you plan on visiting Syracuse officially?
I am going on an official visit to Syracuse for the Notre Dame game.
