    Terrance Ferguson decommits from the Alabama Crimson Tide after having a change of heart.

    March 1, 2016

    Avery Johnson’s first recruiting class at Alabama took a sizeable hit on Tuesday when 5-star small forward Terrance Ferguson decommitted from the Crimson Tide.

    Ray Forsett, Ferguson’s high school coach, broke the news to Scout that the young man has had a change of heart.

    “He’s opening back up his recruitment just based off of him losing his grandmother a month ago,” Forsett said. “He wants to make the right decision. He’s very much still interested in going to Alabama, but he wants to pray about it and make sure he’s making the right decision.”

    Ferguson, ranked as the nation’s No. 13 prospect and No. 5 small forward, was the highest-rated recruit in Alabama’s 2016 recruiting class.

    His decommitment leaves Alabama with only two commitments for the 2016 class – power forward Braxton Key, the nation’s No. 86 overall player, and Ar’mond Davis.
