MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College men’s basketball program and head coach Terry Sellers announced the signing of Scott Ferguson Friday.
The 6-foot-6 Ferguson spent the previous two seasons at Atlanta Metropolitan College under head coach Robert Pritchett. Ferguson played his high school basketball at Roswell High in Roswell, Ga.
“Scott is an extremely versatile player who can play multiple positions for our team,” said Sellers. “He is an athletic wing who can shoot, dribble and post up. I believe he has the potential to be a very good player in the Peach Belt Conference. Scott fits in well with our guys and he is another good piece of our 2011 recruiting class.”
Ferguson finished sixth in the Georgia Junior College Athletic Association (GJCAA) in scoring (16 per game), 12th in rebounding (7.2 per game), and fourth in free-throw percentage at 80 percent (95-119). Ferguson was an All-Region Second Team selection.
Metro went 24-6 this past season, winning the GJCAA regular-season championship. The Red-Eyed Panthers went 14-4 in conference play.
The Bobcats are fresh off a 16-10 season in 2010-11, finishing third in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC). The Bobcats lose two seniors, including starting center Reece Wiedeman, who was named Second Team All-PBC and starting forward Josh Hurst, who earned a spot on the PBC All-Academic Team three years in a row.
The Georgia College Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
