Auburn, Ala.--Auburn football verbal commitment DeRon Furr is now officially an Auburn University student.

Furr led Carver to its first ever state football title as a senior playing for Coach Dell McGee, the former Auburn defensive back.

Furr proved to be a clutch performer in Carver's run to the AAA state title.

Furr will join the competition for playing time this spring with junior college transfer Chris Todd along with returnees Kodi Burns and Neil Caudle. Blake Field, who would have been a redshirt senior, has transferred to Valdosta State in hopes of earning playing time there.
