Scouting Report on J.R. Ferguson

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Camp settingby Barry Every - 08/13/2009
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: He is very well-proportioned with thick legs and powerbase. Could tone up just a tad, but he is not overweight by any means. He looks like a young, giant defensive tackle.
Needs Improvement: He needs to hit the weight room, get stronger and improve his pad level at the point of attack.
Most Impressive: He has the footwork of much smaller linebacker. He is athletic enough to change directions and chase down ball carriers from behind.
Conclusion: Playing at the high level of competition that he will see at Hargrave Military will surely improve his chances of making an impact as a true freshman.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
