Chatt State guard open to all options

l.jpegBack in March, 2020 combo guard Lorenzo Ferrell committed to play at North Florida and was on his way to Division I with three years of eligibility remaining.

He has since then decommitted from the program and is evaluating all of his options.

“North Florida is still in my consideration,” Ferrell said. “Florida will always be home to me in my recruitment process but my options are still open to any schools.”

Southern, Florida A&M, Alcorn State, North Florida and Radford are currently recruiting the 6-4 guard that averaged 11.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.2 assist per game last season.

Southern, who was the most recent program to offer, shocked him when they called to extend the scholarship.

“When Southern offered me I was shocked but very thankful for the offer,” he said. “They have been recruiting me since my freshman year at Chatt State.”

Right now, he doesn’t have any visits planned and is just working to get better. He plans to build on his successful freshman year at the JUCO ranks, that featured a 30-point game that ended with him hitting seven three pointers.

He’ll be patient with the process but he won’t drag it out too long.

“I’m looking at all my options but not rushing a decision,” he explained. “This year I’m more focused on my team and our performance each day and every night chasing a national title.”

If things go as planned, that decision could come, “somewhere towards the second half of the season,” he confessed.
