Three-star linebacker Andre Ferguson (6-3, 205, 4.59) from Redlands (Calif.) East Valley is a player with a lot of upside.
Ferguson is athletic, long and lean. His best days on the gridiron are ahead of him and with a good senior season his stock could soar. He is expected to blow up this season. He is far from the finished product and what he shows already is very enticing for D-I schools.
In his first year as a starter, Ferguson earned all-league honors after he racked up 98 tackles, eight sacks, five deflected passes, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
Ferguson has offers on the table from Kansas, UTEP, San Diego State, Wyoming, Utah and recently one from Arizona State.
"I just received an offer from Arizona State approximately three weeks ago," Ferguson said. "I was trying to set an unofficial visit to ASU but something came up so I am trying to work out another date with coach Tom Osborne before school starts."
If Ferguson and ASU can't make an unofficial visit happen then the next step will be to set an official visit once the season starts.
"I really like the coaches at ASU," Ferguson said. "One of my teammates Lance Evbuomwan signed by ASU and he talking about how disciplined they are and how the coaches are always something to do to make you better."
"I took an unofficial visit to San Diego State on July 14th and spent a good amount of time there," Ferguson said. "I spent most of the day talking to the coaches and getting to know them. I really think the Aztecs have a really good program and I'm really interested in them."
"I have also been talking to coach Jeff Banks from UTEP," Ferguson said. "We are trying to work out an official visit."
Ferguson is a member of the Rivals.com preseason California top 100 team for the class of 2007 landing as the Golden State's No. 83 prospect at any position.
