After averaging 15.4 points and 7.2 boards as a sophomore at Georgia Southern, Eric Ferguson was looked at by many as one of the best mid-major players in the country.
But those numbers dipped during his junior campaign, particularly late in the season, as Ferguson battled through a knee injury that he said left him playing at 50% during the Southern Conference Tournament last March.
The injury was bad enough that Ferguson underwent surgery in April, and since he’s not yet healthy, the rising senior has opted to redshirt during the 2013-2014 season, according to reports.
Ferguson will turn 24 this October, meaning that he’ll be 25 years old by the time that he’s playing his final year. One thing to keep an eye: if Ferguson graduates after this academic year, he’d be a candidate for the graduate transfer rule.
There are plenty of high-major programs out there that could use Ferguson as a role player for one season.
