Josh Houchin captured the Adidas Nations final (USA 2011 vs 2012) and put together a video clip of Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell. The USA 2012 team lost the older USA team despite upsetting them earlier in the tournament.

It’s worth noting that this isn’t necessarily a highlight film because it includes just about every play that Yogi was involved in — the good and bad. It’s always been our philosophy that this provides a better understanding of a player’s game than a traditional highlight film, especially when working with just one game of footage.

    Some very good passing, quick down the court, a pretty fluid stroke (his feet are pretty wide and he didn’t look like he was having the best day shooting), some good man-on-man D, and one snippet of some pretty sick handles. I’d say about 100 handles on NBA Street.

    That’s the guy that I would love for Michigan to land. Very quick and fast. Good handles and has a decent jump shot. He needs to slow down at times and let the game come to him, but he is so athletic that he can blow by players with ease. He needs to narrow his base when it comes to jumper because it’s taking away height needed to launch himself straight up for a jumpshot. It’s part of the reason why it’s inconsistent.

    He’s a must get IMO because of PG skills and athleticism. He would be
    a freshman backing up a SR PG D-Mo.

    He reminds me a little bit of Kalin Lucas. Great speed, quickness, ball handling, and passing skills. This would be a good get for U-M.

  • KC

    Would love to have him. Reminds me of Chris Paul.
    It will be tough. Must be on him hard to get it done!

  • Bill

    This guy has great vision and court awareness. Seeme to see the whole court and at the speed he plays all he would need is time for the other guys to adjust to him. He was effortlessly setting guys up for easy shots. Great instincts.

  • @KC Chris Paul? Are you for real?

    I like his athleticism and his D, but looks like he has some work to do on his shot.

    @Evan

    He’s actually a very good shooter, believe it or not, or at least he seems to be from what I’ve seen of him in person. The first one that he bricked was right after he came into the game the first time. I’m not sure what was up with the second one. Granted, this is against much better competition than he was playing in Semi-State/State when I saw him play.

    He gets great lift from his legs and his shot looks pretty much effortless. That’s only from seeing him a couple of times though, so his shot might need some work.
