Five-star shooting guard Terrance Ferguson will head overseas to play with the Adelaide 36ers in Australia rather than enroll at Arizona, the school announced Thursday.
Ferguson released a statement through the Players’ Tribune about the decision titled “Why I’m Going Pro in Australia.” Ferguson committed to Arizona in April, but decided to head down a different path after being approached by the 36ers at the Nike Hoops Summit.
Ferguson is the No. 16 overall player and the No. 2 shooting guard in the 2016 recruiting class, according to Scout.com. He gradated from Advance Preparatory International, the same high school Denver Nuggets point guard Emmanuel Mudiay attended.
Mudiay also decided to play overseas after high school, heading to China instead of enrolling at SMU.
