Terrence Ferguson Commits to Tide
Alabama's big week on the recruiting trail keeps on going. The Crimson Tide have secured the commitment of four-star, offensive guard, Terrence Ferguson. Ferguson is a 6-foot-4, 300 pound guard out of Peach County High School in Fort Valley, Georgia. He is rated by the 247Sports Composite as the second best guard in the nation, the fifth best recruit in the state of Georgia and the 47th overall recruit in the country.
Ferguson becomes the fourth offensive lineman in the 2021 class for the Tide, joining five-stars JC Latham and Tommy Brockermeyer and fellow four-star, James Brockermeyer.
He was courted to the Crimson Tide by associate defensive coordinator and safeties coach Charles Kelly and offensive line coach Kyle Flood. Ferguson becomes the 15th member of the 2021 recruiting class.
Ferguson chose Alabama over offers from Georgia, Florida State and Auburn.
Prior to the pandemic, Alabama had only one commitment and was rated as the 53rd overall class. During the current pandemic, while recruiting in person is prohibited by the NCAA, Alabama has secured 14 commitments and boasts a top-five class in the cycle.
The Crimson Tide initially offered him a scholarship in April of 2019, he was able to take an unofficial visit to the Capstone in September of last year to watch the Ole Miss game. He was also able to visit Alabama, prior to the pandemic, in February of 2020 for one of Alabama's Junior Day events.
The addition of Ferguson to the 2021 class gives Nick Saban the highest rated offensive line class he has ever recruited during his time in Tuscaloosa. Amarius Mims, five-star tackle out of Georgia, will be committing in August. At this point, Mims would be considered the cherry-on-top of this historic class.
