247Sports reported that 5-star recruit and recent Arizona Wildcat commit Terrance Ferguson is contemplating playing overseas. As opposed to playing his freshman year of college under coach Sean Miller, it’s being rumored that Ferguson might end up in Australia, per ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla. Along with him getting his professional career started, he’d be signing a deal with Under Armour, the sponsor for his travel team.
Ranked number 11 in ESPN’s 100, Terrance “2K” Ferguson is a 6-7 wing who possess a good outside shot and video game-like athleticism that spawned him that nickname.
If he chooses to go the overseason route, he’ll join Emmanuel Mudiay and Brandon Jennings as Under Armour athletes who bypassed their freshman years at college. Mudiay went to China before being drafted seventh overall in last year’s draft, and Jennings had a stint in Italy being selected as the 10th overall pick in his respective draft.
Ferguson was a participant in the McDonald’s All-American game and the Nike Hoop Summit while a senior at Advanced Preparatory International in Dallas, Texas. Before he announced his commitment to Arizona, Ferguson was a verbal to Alabama.
Per NBA Draft rules, a player must be one year removed from his high school graduation or 19 at the time of the draft.
