Ferguson has two schools on top

With five scholarship offers and plenty of early interest, Baltimore defensive tackle Anthony Ferguson is planning to get out and see many of the schools on his list this spring. Two weeks ago, the 6-foot-2, 255-pound Ferguson made the first of those visits with a trip to Iowa City.

Ferguson made the trip with his friend and teammate Jim Poggi, whose father, Biff, is their head coach at the Gilman School in Baltimore.
