Dominique Ferguson to Kentucky

Dominique FergusonI just spoke with Lawrence North 2010 forward Dominique Ferguson and he confirmed that he committed to Kentucky about an hour ago. Ferguson is one of the top 10 players in the 2010 class and visited Indiana last fall several times when Kelvin Sampson was still running the show. This is a huge get for UK as Ferguson is one of the most versatile players in the 2010 class and should be a five-star prospect when Rivals and Scout release their rankings after the spring evaluation period.

    The 2010 player that would put IU back on the map is DeShaun Thomas. This isn't really news to anyone, the kid is a stud. My understanding is that he loves OSU and Thad Matta which is why he originally committed there but his dad wants him to look at IU (correct me if I'm wrong). so hopefully Crean can convince him, although 2010 is indeed a long ways away

    Agree with you Kelin. He's a good kid and congratulations are in order for DF. I thought we had a decent shot at him back in the fall before all of the Sampson stuff went down. He made quite a few visits to Assembly Hall this past season.

    ouch. I don't know whats worse a kick in the groin or this. This was the only guy I thought we could get in the 2010 class. Hey guys when we do win a championship I think we should all commute to bloomington and go nuts. I'm travel from anywhere. Who's with me?

    ric I have heard the same thing that his mom is the one who said he isn't fully committed to OSU and she wants him to consider other schools too……may still have a shot at him……..

    I suspect that in another year or two Coach Crean is going to be getting just about anybody he wants to get in this state.

    Who wants to go play for Billy Bob at UK. This kid should have his head examine. Anyways, we don't want these so-call Indiana kids who do not want to play for IU or any other schools in the state. I can understand choosing to play somewhere you feel comfortable, but against arch rivals and big time enemies- Come on, give me a break. We don't need these traitors here at Indiana and that goes for you too T. Zeller.

    Not sure id say hes the only player we could have gotten in 2010. Theres still a lot of recruiting left and anyway that class wouldnt come in for 3 seasons. If crean can sign three players in two weeks im not worrying about us getting no one for 2010. That was one of the dumber comments ive ever seen on this site.

    My apologies I meant to type that I thought he was on of the the better players in the 2010 class we had a shot with. Wrote it at work, and honestly if you reallly have to make a statement by calling me dumb, it really only makes you look like an ass. You can easily make your point without bashing someone. Thats really sad, and you must be bored.

    go watch ferguson play at LN this year and tell me that you “don't want that so-called Indiana kid” wearing Cream and Crimson. as for zeller, IU really couldn't use a 7-footer. we'd all much rather have deandre down low…right?

    Do you think kids in Indiana still think of IU and Kentucky as big rivals? It just seems like over the last 10 years it has been rare to find a year when both teams were competitive on the national level at the same time. I'm not very dialed in to this any more – do kids in Indiana still see Kentucky as archrivals?

    No. I don't care if it's Michael Jordan reincarnated. I don't want them playing for IU, if they want to play for IU's rivals instead. I'll take someone who is a true Hoosier or bleeds crimson, and they don't have to be from Indiana to be a real Hoosier- ala Reggie Miller, Isiah Thomas, etc…

    That's the problem with most of the players today. Back in the day, if you were from Indiana and a High School All-star, it was very important to beat Kentucky and sweep the series then come to IU and beat them once a year. That was one of highlights of most of the player's careers. Know it's just another game to these young kids.

    It's because now these kids play something like 75 AAU games in the summer and are probably teammates with some of the Kentucky kids. Look at the kid from Ohio we just signed for next year, he plays on an Indiana AAU team and plays with those guys way more than he even plays with his own high school team.

    High school basketball is a changing world and it's a national landscape, not local anymore. Gone are the days (for the most part) where kids grow up dreaming of playing at IU because that's all they've ever known and seen.

    i'd love to have those players too mike, but i'm not so sure that they exist anymore. let's face it, all of the kids in high school today weren't even born the last time IU won a National Championship, and they were fthree years old or younger the last time IU was #1 in the polls.

    kids now commit based on playing opportunities and on coaches. let's hope for kids that will play hard for Crean instead of the outdated “keeds that bleed IU.” only the walk-ons do that anymore…
