We glanced at a few different lead guards in the country earlier this week and today we take a peek into the state of Minnesota where emerging floor general Donald Ferguson III of Osseo High School is beginning to open some eyes.

A talented and quick 6’1 perimeter talent, Ferguson is a multi-dimensional guard who can score, create, and defend on any given night.  He has nice length and instincts which allows him to disrupt things on the defensive end of the floor both on the ball and off the ball.  Offensively he handles it well and he uses that to his advantage in creating opportunities for his teammates in both half court sets and transition.  Scoring wise he can finish at the rim off the bounce and he’s shown an ability to hit the mid-range jumper and spot up from beyond the arc with a smooth stroke.  He brings a little bit of everything to the table and he’s just starting to stretch his legs as a prospect and schools are beginning to take notice.  

He recently picked up an offer from Hampton and is getting interest from the likes of San Diego, IUPUI, Wyoming, etc. amongst others.  The talented guard is primed for a big jump once things get back to moving forward on the hardwood and he’s one to watch closely over the next 8-12 months.

Ferguson competes with the Team GetShook program during the grassroots travel season.
