Multiple Offers For Furstinger

Joe Furstinger, one of the better big men in the west for 2014, has some West Coast offers...

Joe Furstinger, 6-9 JR C/PF Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita, is a promising big man with a good frame, very good feet, willingness to bang and a nice upside.

I spoke with Furstinger recently and asked about the schools that are recruiting him.

"Colorado, Washington State, San Francisco, San Diego, Oregon, Portland, Santa Clara, Pepperdine, UC Santa Barbara, Fresno State, Northern Arizona, Northern Colorado, Pacific and Grand Canyon," said Furstinger.

Furstinger said several schools have extended scholarship offers.

"Fresno State, NAU, Northern Colorado, UOP and Grand Canyon have offered," said Furstinger.

Furstinger said one issue stands out for him as he considers schools.

"Playing time is the big issue," said Furstinger. "The location doesn't really matter."

I asked Furstinger if there are any schools that he's pretty sure he will visit.

"I probably want to visit Colorado, Washington State and Oregon," said Furstinger. "I will take all five visits."

Furstinger said he took an unofficial to USF last year.

"It was really nice," said Furstinger. "And I know Coach Rebibo, who just got hired there. He coached me last year in AAU ball."

Furstinger said he has no time frame for making a decision. He said he has a 2.8 GPA.
