With an Indiana hat on the table with the Cam Cameron era oval IU logo — which had no other symbolism other than the fact that his father stumbled across it — Yogi Ferrell made his commitment to the Hoosiers official by signing a letter of intent in the Wood Room at Park Tudor School on Wednesday morning.
The 5-foot-11, 165-pounder made his verbal commitment to IU just over a year ago at Park Tudor’s opening game of the 2010-11 season and said he was excited to finish the process.
“It’s a pretty big day,” Ferrell said. “Signing this letter of intent basically gives my full commitment to IU. It feels great to get this off my shoulders. Now I can just focus on getting better every day, preparing for college and definitely getting ready for this upcoming seasons.”
Ferrell admitted, though, that when he does get to IU the pressure will be high when he and the rest of the Class of 2012 come to IU. They have dubbed themselves “The Movement” (that was Ron Patterson’s word and IU fans adopted it) and Ferrell said they recognize the expectations will be high.
“Our class going to IU is one that should be remembered,” Ferrell said. “… I just can’t wait to get there. I know if we go in and we don’t produce as people expect us to, they won’t be too happy. …. There’s going to be a lot of pressure, I know, but I feel like when we go in, all of us coming together and playing together, I feel like we can all do it as a team. We can’t all do it individually, you know one guy, but I feel like if we come together and play well, we can get it done.”
What does “get it done” mean?
“What can be is definitely getting that sixth banner,” Ferrell said. “That’s definitely the main goal I actually want to accomplish coming in to college is winning a national championship.”
Ferrell knows his part in that will be being more of a leader as the point guard and floor leader of the group. Park Tudor coach Ed Schilling said Ferrell has mostly been more of a quiet lead-by-example type, but he’s working to become more vocal.
“I know I definitely have to work on that now, because I know Coach Crean, when I get there, I’m going to have to take over the team,” Ferrell said. “That’s basically what he told me, so I’m working on basically just my leadership skills. That’s the only thing I’m working on for this season and the future.”
