Inside the Hall caught up with class of 2012 commitment Yogi Ferrell for a brief video interview at the Nike Spring Showdown in Merrillville on Saturday. Check out our scouting report on Ferrell’s play so far this spring as well as our Q & A and some highlights, below:
There is little doubt that Yogi Ferrell is the engine that makes his Indiana Elite team go. Ferrell has done a great job of mixing up his offensive role during the AAU season thus far. Ferrell is a more than capable scorer, having the skill and quickness to get to the rim and score, but also possessing great touch as an outside shooter. The 5-11 point guard has great body control and does a great job of absorbing contact and finishing. Ferrell’s willingness to attack the basket also earns him frequent trips to the foul line where he is a more than reliable shooter.
He’s also excelled as a floor general, using the weapons around him to the best of his distributing abilities. Ferrell has the option of finding capable shooters such as Ron Patterson and Jeremy Hollowell (prior to his injury), but also the luxury of athletic big men down low in Hanner Perea and Obij Aget. Yogi has done a nice job of not being too passive, but also not dominating the offense in a manner detrimental to his team. Defensively, Ferrell has excelled as an on-ball defender, an area that is sometimes viewed as optional in AAU basketball.
