Jamal Ferguson, a 6-foot-4 junior swingman from Maury High School in Virginia, made a verbal commitment to Marquette and head coach Buzz Williams on Thursday, choosing the Golden Eagles over Georgetown after visiting both campuses unofficially earlier this year.

"When he went up for Marquette Madness I think that kind of sold him, the only problem was that Marquette was a little far away," said Maury assistant Jermaine Woods.

"He had to get over the fact that it was so far, but when you put all the pros and cons together that was the only thing to get over. His heart was with Marquette."
