Panthers Lose Swing Player
by Chris Dokish

Pittsburgh’s Class of 2005 has shrunk by one player as Trevor Ferguson, a 6’5” shooting guard/small forward from Oldsmar Christian Academy in Oldsmar, Florida, has decided not to enroll at the university. Ferguson was considered to be a borderline high major prospect. The other four members of the class: Sam Young, Levance Fields, Doyle Hudson, and Tyrell Biggs, are enrolled and began class on Monday. East Carolina transfer Mike Cook, a 6’4” guard/forward, is also taking classes. Cook will sit out the upcoming season and be eligible in the fall of 2006.

The Panthers now have two more scholarships to give for the Class of 2006 after already receiving a verbal commitment from fast-rising senior Gilbert Brown, a 6’6” swingman from South Kent Prep in South Kent, Connecticut.

One of the remaining spots available will be reserved for a big man, with the two main targets being 6’9” New Yorker Mike Davis, a former Panther verbal commitment who will attend Notre Dame Prep in Massachusetts this season, and fellow New York native Taj Gibson, a 6’9” shot blocker attending Stone Ridge Prep in California. The last remaining scholarship is expected to go the best available player, regardless of position.
