Don Ferguson III has been having a monster senior season for St Cloud Tech HS this winter. Arguably the top unsigned guard in Minnesota’s 2022 class, Ferguson is averaging 26 points 4 rebounds 4 assists  4 steals and was recently name as a finalist for Minnesota player of the year. 

At 6’2 Ferguson is a smooth combo guard capable of playing on or off the ball, and is lights out from deep, shooting 53% from three this season. He has the instincts and skillset to be a score first guard but also the handle and feel for the game to run his team as a Point Guard. Ferguson has the athleticism to play above the rim and uses his length and quickness defensively to get steals and start the break. 

Ferguson was a standout on NY2LA platforms since his middle school days starring for Team GetShook in the GNBA, and saw his success translate to the HS level. He was impressive last year playing on the NY2LA Association, including leading his team to a big win over Florida Pro at Best of the South during the July live period. 

NY2LA Sports caught up with Don Ferguson II – Head Coach at St Cloud Tech and Program Director for Team GetShook – to gain insights into his son’s game and update his recruitment. 

“Don is one of our team captains and he is the type of leader that leads with his actions and his play. He is a vocal leader when he needs to be. He has a high IQ and knows how to run a team.”

Ferguson II has seen the development up close, and credits Ferguson III’s work ethic for getting him to this point – and college coaches have taken notice of his scoring ability. 

“He has worked extremely hard to put himself in a great position. He is being recruited as a combo guard because of his ability to score so naturally.” 

On the recruitment front, the younger Ferguson is talking to Eastern Illinois and Fordham the most.

Don Ferguson III is the type of talent that could be a breakout star in March Madness in a couple of years. He has the confidence, size and shooting that should translate to the mid major level in college and is definitely a prospect that schools in need of an impact scoring guard should be monitoring closely.
