The Scoop : college profile page
“Cade Fergus was an intriguing player for scouts to watch this summer as he is a toolsy player with high upside. Fergus is a twitchy athlete with a strong, wirey athletic frame. He has good balance and coordination. He’s an athletic defender in center field with some rawness to his skills but is athletic enough to fill above average projection and above average arm strength. He’s an above average runner with a good swing and quick, whippy hands through the zone.” - Mack’s Mets
