Evaluation: Ferrell is the top point guard in the class of 2012 behind Kyle Anderson (#5 — UCLA). He has great quickness and does a great job of getting into the lane. Between his unbelievably quick first step and explosiveness, it’s tough for defenders to stay in front of him. Once he gets into the lane, he either utilizes his excellent mid-range game or makes nice passes to pick up the assist. Ferrell also has good ball-handling skills and is able to knock down the perimeter jumper. However, he can improve on his decision-making skills as well as his strength.
