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.
