Ferguson, 6-2 and 190 pounds, is only a junior but he already has verbal scholarship offers from teams such as Clemson, Michigan, Virginia Tech and LSU. The Southeast signal caller calls the Tigers his leader. Ferguson has participated in two Nike Football Training Camps (Georgia and Duke) and has even camped with Morris(Michigan QB commit) at a few team camps in the past.
"This is a great opportunity for me," Ferguson said. "It's mostly seniors here so I have a lot to prove. Shane Morris and I have talked a lot. We know we are the young talent and I think we both look at it like a great learning experience. I am enjoying this while I can.
"Hopefully I will be at Elite 11 next year. That's something that Shane and I have talked about."
Ferguson has good size, arm strength and a nice release. And Luginbill sees more.
"What I like about Riley is his swagger," Luginbill said.
"2013 QB Riley Ferguson has shown good zip on his ball this morning. He'll be 10 plus offer guy by mid fall."
Attended the 2011 Orange and White Game in Death Valley. Won QB MVP honors at Nike Camp. He led Butler to a state title in 2010, passing for 2,899 yards and 24 TDs.
