Indiana’s unprecedented recruiting run continued Wednesday night when 2012 Park Tudor point guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell became the ninth Hoosier commitment since August 9.
Ferrell, the No. 17 player in the 2012 class according to Rivals.com, announced his decision to attend Indiana over Butler, Florida, Virginia and Wake Forest prior to Park Tudor’s season-opener against University.
“Right now in front of my family the Park Tudor family who have all been my biggest supporters, I want to verbally commit to play my college basketball for coach Tom Crean at Indiana,” Ferrell said to a capacity crowd.
The 5-10 point guard becomes the fourth recruit in IU’s 2012 class that also includes Broad Ripple’s Ron Patterson, United Faith Christian Academy’s Peter Jurkin and La Porte La Lumiere’s Hanner Perea.
He’s the third five-star recruit to commit to Crean since October 31, joining the aforementioned Perea and 2011 Washington big man Cody Zeller, who committed and signed a Letter of Intent on November 11.
Inside the Hall will have more coverage of this developing story in the coming hours.
