Recruiting picks up for Ferguson

After a solid freshman season last fall, Fullerton CB Corey Ferguson (5-10, 191) has been a prospect that has caught the eye of several four-year schools. He's got two early offers and more schools could be close to throwing their hats in the ring...

"I have offers right now from Cincinnati and South Alabama and I'm planning on visiting Cincinnati on July 18th," Ferguson told recently. "I've also been talking a lot with Boise State and USC and South Florida have been in contact with me during the spring.

"I want to take my visits before I decide, so I'll take four more after the Cincinnati visit and then see where things stand."

Ferguson locked down his side for the Hornets as as a freshman this past fall, totaling 27 tackles, one interception and four passes defensed and he said he's been working hard to get ready for an even better sophomore campaign.

"I played quarterback in high school, so I'm probably at my best in press, reading routes and making plays on the ball," Ferguson said. "One thing I've been working on a lot is my footspeed and getting in and out of my breaks quicker. I also want to get even better in bump-and-run and just lock things down even more than I was already able to."

As a prep, Ferguson enjoyed a solid career at Orlando (Fl.) Evans High School, but he was unable to qualify, so he decided to head west to make sure he focused on the right things and also to get himself ready for the next level.

"The staff here is great and I felt like they would get me ready to play at a four-year school," Ferguson said. "They always have a lot of guys sign with four-year schools after the season and I felt like if I could succeed here, it would help me get looks and get moved on to the next level."

In addition to his hard work on the field, Ferguson has also taken care of things in the classroom as well and he is set to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
