(Courtesy of Texas State Athletics) SAN MARCOS, Texas – The Texas State men’s basketball team announced the signing of two players to NLI’s for the 2015-16 season on Thursday. The Bobcats will welcome in Will Ferguson and Maljhum McCrea, two junior college players that will each have two years of eligibility remaining. “I am very happy to announce the signing of Will Ferguson, a combo guard from Howard College and Maljhum McCrea, a power forward/center out of St. Petersburg Junior College in Florida,” said head coach Danny Kaspar. Ferguson is a 6-2 guard that was recruited by BYU and UALR along with Texas State. He was named Conference Player of the Year and Regional Player of the Year out of Herndon High School in Virginia. He was also First Team All-State and was a member of the 1,000 point club, despite playing just two years for Herndon. According to CBS Sports, Ferguson is “very shifty with the ball and keeps defenders off-balance with his change of direction and ability to create.” “Will is a pretty good shooter who can also handle the basketball,” Kaspar said. “We felt like we needed to recruit someone who has point guard skills but can also play the off-guard. He also has a reputation as a pretty good defender and we felt we needed someone like that with the departure of Wes Davis.” McCrea is a 6-7 power forward who chose Texas State despite being recruited by schools such as Arkansas State and UL Lafayette. He is originally from Miami, where he led his team to back to back state championships. While at St. Petersburg College he received back-to-back Conference Player of the Year awards and was named Honorable Mention JUCO All-American his freshman year. “Maljhum McCrea has been described by his coach as a warrior,” Kaspar said. “He is a good rebounder and was conference player of the year for two years. He has led his high school team to two state championships and his junior college team to two conference championships.”
