Meantime, Terrance Ferguson, a 6-7 2016 shooting guard from Dallas (TX) Prime Prep who also visited Louisville Tuesday, listed his top three as Baylor, Louisville and Arizona when talking with the Louisville Courier-Journal.
“Baylor, I’ve been watching them for the past three years, and I like the coaching system,” Ferguson told the paper. “They have great coaches. Louisville, obviously they have great coaches as well and a long history behind the school name. … And Arizona, their fan base is crazy, and I’d love to play down there also.”
