Adelaide sign US teen star Terrance Ferguson
The Adelaide 36ers today announced the signing of exciting American high school star Terrance Ferguson for the 2016-17 NBL season.Eighteen year old Ferguson, who stands at 201cm, graduated from Advance Preparatory International this year and would be eligible for the 2017 NBA draft per current rules as a 19-year-old, one year removed from high school. For the past few months there has been speculation he would bypass attending the University of Arizona, whom he had verbally committed to, choosing instead a year in the NBL before declaring for the draft. CEO of the Adelaide 36ers Guy Hedderwick said, “This is a great acquisition for the 36ers and I am looking forward to his performance in the NBL.” Ferguson recently attended the renowned invitational Steph Curry Select Camp with reports from Scout.com stating Ferguson was easily one of the best prospects and players at camp. "The 6-foot-6 wingman has a reputation as a shooter and his rep held true. He showed very good range and consistency with his stroke. Ferguson is also a high-level athlete that excels in transition. One area of his game that caught my eye at the camp was his defense. He was dialed in on that end, moved his feet well and did the best job of any camper of defending Curry during one on one drills," Evan Daniels of Scout.com said. The McDonald’s All-American scored a record seven three-pointers at the Nike Hoops Summit in April and has won three gold medals on USA Basketball’s U16, U17 and U19 teams.
