As a sophomore at Indianapolis (Ind.) Park Tudor, 5-foot-11 point guard Kevin Ferrell put up huge numbers and led his squad to a big season. Now running the grassroots circuit with Indiana Elite, Ferrell is proving to be one of the premier floor generals in the class of 2012.
"I like to get up and down, push the ball up the floor," said Ferrell. "If anybody runs with me, I an get them the ball and they can score. I also like to play defense, I can get in under my man, move my feet and cause problems."
Although he is still a sub six-footer, Ferrell looks to be growing and is a fine athlete with speed, quickness and above average leaping ability. He's got a tight handle, loves to drain pull-up jumpers and sees the floor.
"I think my game kind of resembles Chris Paul," Ferrell told Rivals.com. "He comes off of screens and just dimes and dishes guys. He's not really much bigger than me either."
As a result of his play, Ferrell has already been hit hard by high major programs looking to secure a commitment.
"I've been offered by Indiana, Illinois, Ohio State, Butler, Virginia, Washington, Notre Dame and that's about it," said Ferrell. "Michigan, they said they would offer when they hit the date in June and then Xavier, that's about it. I'd always love to hear from schools like Kentucky or North Carolina and places like that."
According to Ferrell, the attention just adds to his desire to work.
"The 2012 class has a lot of really good talent so I can't take any plays off," said Ferrell. "I have to work, I can't afford to slack."
Just getting his feet wet with the recruiting process, Ferrell says that he has no favorites and is in no hurry to make a decision.
"I'm definitely going to take my time with all of this. I'm not in any rush."
