2016 Big Board breakdown: No. 8, Chanler Ferguson

  • 6:00 am Wednesday, April 15th, 2015 by Anthony Chiang

Each weekday leading up to the start of spring practice, we’ll release a new player from the top 10 of our Class of 2016 Big Board and break down his game with an interactive graphic. Today, it’s No. 8, Chanler Ferguson, a linebacker at Atlantic.

At 5-foot-11, 225 pounds, Ferguson is a force at middle linebacker. He’s not only a tackling machine, but also can read quarterbacks better than most. Ferguson returned four interceptions for touchdowns last season. If he can duplicate last year’s stats, Ferguson will have plenty of offers by the end of his senior season.

Atlantic High’s signing ceremony began late, but it was for a good reason.

Shelton Johnson was still trying to decide between Michigan and Florida State, so Eagles coach Tavarius Jackson pulled the four-star recruit into a room.

“It was something we sat down and talked about,” Jackson said. “That’s why it took us so long to come in. He was a nervous wreck.”

After their discussion, Jackson and Johnson walked into Atlantic High’s media center 20 minutes late Wednesday. But the 6-foot-5 Eagles defensive end had made up his mind, choosing Michigan in front a crowd full of teammates, coaches, family and media. [More]
