Opponent Alert: Riley Ferguson named Memphis starting QB

He’s not Paxton Lynch, nowhere near the mobility, but he’s got a good arm.

Riley Ferguson named University of Memphis starting quarterback

A native of Matthews, North Carolina, Ferguson was a highly-touted recruit out of high school, signing with Tennessee despite offers from Alabama and Notre Dame, among others. He left Tennessee in the summer of 2014 and later landed at Coffeyville Community College, where he completed 225 of 332 passes for 2,942 yards and 35 touchdowns last season.

When Norvell was hired in early December, Ferguson became one of his first junior-college recruits. According to 247 Sports, he was the No. 2 ranked junior-college quarterback prospect in the class.
