The 6-5, 220-pound Ferguson is considered the 12th-best tight end and No. 296 prospect overall in the class of 2021, as he’s hauled in 123 receptions for 1,901 yards to lead the Eagles to the state playoffs in each of the last two seasons.
Ferguson landed an offer from the Buckeyes last May, and though he’s never been to campus, has a strong relationship with offensive coordinator/tight ends coach Kevin Wilson and running backs coach/area recruiter Tony Alford.
Ohio State already holds one commitment at the tight end position in Aurora (Colo.) Cherokee Trail three-star Sam Hart, and plans to add one more to the fold this cycle. In addition to Ferguson, other top targets include Savannah (Tenn.) Hardin County four-star Hudson Wolfe; Needham (Mass.) St. Sebastian’s four-star Louis Hansen; Bowling Green, Ky., three-star Jordan Dingle; and Hilliard (Ohio) Bradley three-star Jack Pugh.
The Buckeyes have not signed more than one tight end in a cycle since 2016, when they landed four-stars Jake Hausmann, Luke Farrell and Kierre Hawkins.
