Dominique Ferguson leaving Indianapolis for Hargrave

  • 07/15/2009 1:33 pm in

2010 Indianapolis forward Dominique Ferguson won’t finish his high school career in the Hoosier state.

According to a report by Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star, the 6-9 Ferguson will finish his high school career at Hargrave Military Academy.

Hargrave, located in Chatham (VA), is a military-style prep school that produced former IU players Armon Bassett and Jordan Crawford. Incoming freshman Maurice Creek attended the school last season.

The buzz that Ferguson would not return to Lawrence North started at the JR/SR all-star game at New Albany, when he didn’t show up because of a reported injury.

As recently as June 22, Ferguson told Jody Demling of the Louisville Courier-Journal that he would return to Jack Keefer’s program for his senior season.

Ferguson is considering a list of schools that includes Arizona, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Depaul, Duke, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia. The Hoosiers have not offered a scholarship.

    Good luck Dom, and I hope to see you at IU soon. Keefer knows that he cant replace a player with your skill set. If Keefer was a coach you guys would a least have had two state titles already from this year and last year. Keefer has 6 D-1 players and can't get out of the regionals. I was at the game vs. Franklin Central and it was coaching not the players.

    I won't be crying for Keefer anytime soon over any troubles he may have in competing with AAU reps. Sounds like karma to me, considering the players he has recruited away from other schools to build his legacy.

    Why would a high school coach make such comments as” Dom did not fit into being a Wildcat” he was the leading scorer and tops in rebounds. “Discipline was not what he was looking for” why would he go to a military school. If you notice Keefer makes neagivtive statements about all players that leave his program. Keefer is the one that nees to grow up.
