Jamal Ferguson commits to MU

Buzz Williams secured his first commitment from the class of 2012 today when 6'5" wing Jamal Ferguson (Norfolk, VA, Maury HS) verbally committed to the Warriors.

Ferguson is currently ranked as the #62 recruit in the 2012 class by ESPN and builds on a strength of the MU program under Williams -- he's a 'switchable' with the ability to play a number of positions on the floor. Juan Anderson, a 6'6" 2011 signee for MU, cited Buzz' philosophy with 'switchables' in his interview with Rosiak from last fall.

As a sophomore last season Ferguson averaged 16 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds per game. He was named to the second-team All-Tidewater Team after the season (current MU big man Davante Gardner made the first team).

Todd Rosiak broke the news first on Twitter today and followed up by indicating that MU beat out Georgetown for Ferguson's services. Impressive.
