HD Video: Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell at Spiece Run ‘N Slam

  • 05/11/2011 7:52 am in

Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell is considered one of the top point guards nationally in the 2012 class and the IU commit is striking the perfect balance between facilitator and scorer so far this spring for Indiana Elite.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Ferrell helped lead Indiana Elite to the semifinals of the Bill Hensley Memorial Spiece Run ‘N Slam All-Star Classic this past weekend in Ft. Wayne. Watch high-definition quality clips of Indiana’s point guard of the future (wearing jersey No. 11) at the Run ‘N Slam in the embedded video player below (Note: You can expand the video to full screen by using the arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the player):

    I love the way he hops around the court. Unlike our current wings he gets his 3pt shot off quickly , in balance and at the top of his jump. Guys who try to close out quickly are going to get blown by .

    I can see all kinds of offensive options including a ball screen by the 2 guard Patterson who could be dangerous on the roll and then a potential dump to Zeller or Perea.

    Yogi combined with just one player who can set the high ball screen and be an effective roller, when he needs it , will be a game changer for IU basketball.

    Again, he is really good. His shot is great but it will continue to improve. He strikes me as the type of guy who, when he gets hot, could rattle off 10 points before the other team even blinks.

    What excites me even more is the fact he appears to be getting much better. I thought he looked good a year ago but if you go back and look at his videos or remember seeing him live he has improved, without a doubt.

    Bonus – he plays great D for a guard his size. Telep even mentions that. Another player I am excited to see in candy stripes.

    ITH i love all the videos you guys are filming and putting up. great work that i know all IU fans appreciate

  • The kid at the 0:23 mark is giving Yogi, what, like five feet? At that length, it should be nearly impossible to let someone drive around the defender, but Yogi does it anyway.

    He is the type of PG that makes everyone around him better, while still keeping himself a threat.

    Creates offense with penetration, with ball pressure and values the ball. Imagine him kicking out to Hulls or a healthy Creek..Yogi is the point guard that can take you to the promised land.

    What is not to love about Yogi’s game? He is the quickest player on the floor, and seems to exude confidence not just in his game, but in his teammates’ abilities as well. I was impressed by his drive and kickout for the 3 at the end of that one game. Instead of hogging the ball ala LeBron, he found a way to get his teammate involved in a key situation.

    * If you try to guard him too close, he blows by you for a layup, pops a mid range J, or hits a cutting HP for a high percentage shot.

    * If you lay off of him, he buries a 3 on you

    * Due to his quickness, he can limit the other PG’s ability to drive and distribute thus disrupting the entire flow of the offense.

    I have developed a pretty huge man-crush on Yogi!

    There is a rumor that Yogi chose IU solely because there is a restaurant named after him already. In 10 years, that is probably what people will think.

    I think you know what I mean. Would it make you feel better if I said Kobe? I hate the NBA, but I know that James used to pass up shots in the clutch. However, if you look at his career shots per game, he takes more shots in the playoffs than the regular season, so he “hogs” the ball more in key games as opposed to ones that mean nothing (aka, the regular season, because the regular season doesn’t mean anything in the NBA).
