Clarksville, Ark.-West Fork High School basketball standout Josh Ferrell will continue his basketball career at the University of the Ozarks, it was announced by Ozarks’ Head Men’s Basketball Coach Doug Boxell.
Ferrell, a 6-foot-1 guard, averaged 22.0 points, 6.9 assists and 5.3 steals per game as a senior while earning All-State, All-Region and All-Conference honors. Ferrell hit 90 three-point shots during the season and owns the Arkansas Activity Association record in most career steals (383), most steals in a season (181) and three-pointers in a quarter (6). He finishes his career as a three-time All-Conference performer and a two-time All-Region player. He was also selected to play in the 2013 Arkansas High School Coaches Association All-Star Basketball Game scheduled for June.
“We are very happy to have Josh join our basketball family at the University of the Ozarks,” said Boxell. “Josh has shown he is a proven winner on the court as well as in the classroom. He comes from a basketball family and will provide us with a player that has a high basketball IQ and a great outside shot.”

Ferrell helped West Fork to 87 wins during his three-year career. As a senior, Ferrell led the team to the state tournament and a second-place finish in the conference and district tournament. West Fork qualified for the state tournament all three years, and his sophomore season, the team won the conference, district and regional championship and advanced to the state championship game.

He is the son of David and Kelly Ferrell and will pursue a degree in education.
