Report: 5-star Arizona commit Terrance Ferguson skipping college, will play overseas


The Arizona Wildcats are one of the best basketball programs in the country and have been for the last few years. However, they will be taking a big hit this season as five-star shooting guard commit Terrance Ferguson will likely be skipping college.

247Sports’ Jerry Meyer reported that Ferguson is expected not to enroll at Arizona and will instead go overseas to play professionally for a year. He would then be eligible to declare for the 2017 NBA Draft, which is likely what he would have done regardless of enrolling with the Wildcats.

Terrance Ferguson is the second-ranked shooting guard in the country and committed to Arizona after flipping from Alabama just a few months ago. He would be following the path of Emmanuel Mudiay, who played overseas in China before getting drafted seventh overall by the Denver Nuggets last year.

The Wildcats aren’t strangers to this situation. In 2008, Brandon Jennings spent a year in Italy instead of joining Arizona before getting drafted tenth overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2009 NBA Draft.
