Ferguson enjoyed his visit to Vanderbilt for the Kentucky game.

"It was great, I loved it up there. It was real fun. I enjoyed the campus and the coaches and everything."

Ferguson has been playing at the varsity level for 5-A Cinco Ranch since his sophomore year and has served as team captain the past two seasons.

"Our team came in fourth in the district. Unfortunately we weren't able to go to the playoffs. The top 3 teams got to go to the playoffs. We lost a game because of one of the hurricanes that was here. I was pretty bummed out about that but we had a good season," said Ferguson.

A versatile player, Ferguson was moved around to several line positions this season.

"This year I played center, right guard and left guard. They just kept moving me around. I'm willing to play anywhere. I love football. I just want to play the game. Wherever somebody needs me I'll go in there and play. I come from a really competitive high school so I love competition; academically or athletically," commented Ferguson.

Ferguson, who has shown a great work ethic at Cinco Ranch, feels his coachability is his biggest strength.

"I'm really coachable, I'll do anything the coach tells me to do and go out there and give 100 percent, all I got."

Ferguson hopes to find a good school in the southeast or southwest regions.

"I'm looking for a good school. I'd prefer to stay close to home in Texas, like being part of the Big 12 or SEC would be good, I just want to play. I'm used to having a big school and a lot of people, so that would be good," said the big Texan.

In addition to Vanderbilt, Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech, Georgetown (Ky.), and Trinity have shown an interest in Ferguson.

Ferguson, who also plays the cello in an orchestra, is fully qualified academically scoring 1170 and 1780 with the writing on the SAT.
