TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona basketball program took a huge hit earlier this week when shooting guard Terrance Ferguson announced he's going overseas to play professionally.

Ferguson, ranked No. 13 in the ESPN100, committed to the Wildcats in April after turning down North Carolina, Kansas and Maryland.

The addition of Ferguson, considered by some to be the best shooter available, would have given Wildcats head coach Sean Miller a top-5 recruiting class. Ferguson, 6-foot-5, 190 pounds, broke the Nike Hoops Summit game record for 3-pointers with seven.

"Terrance Ferguson informed me earlier this week that he has decided to pursue professional opportunities instead of attending the University of Arizona this fall," Miller said in a news release. "I hope this next chapter of his basketball career goes well, and his goal of one day becoming an NBA player is realized."
