With the spring signing period having come and gone, it was unclear whether or not Terrance Ferguson would actually be a member of the 2016-17 Arizona Wildcats.

Sean Miller put any speculation to rest on Wednesday by officially commenting on Ferguson.

"Evidenced by me talking about him, he signed something," Miller explained. "We anticipate him being here and I really look forward to coaching him."

Coach would not go into detail what the actual document Ferguson signed was, but by commenting on him, it is clear that the talented shooter and defender will be in Tucson next year.

"Terrance is as good as defensive player as I've seen," Miller continued. "In terms of his ability to shoot the basketball coupled with his ability to defend, he's almost like an upperclassman in those two areas of his game."

"It's just a matter of him picking up size and strength. If he does that, he'll be a very good player."

Ferguson will officially join Lauri Markkanen, Kobi Simmons and Rawle Alkins as incoming freshmen. Transfers Keanu Pinder, Talbott Denny and Dylan Smith were also announced on Wednesday.
