The offer list is growing quickly for Columbus, Ga. standout Deron Furr.

"Right now I have offers from Wake Forest, Duke, Kentucky, Tulane, Michigan and Georgia Tech," he said in a recent interview with CUTigers.com. "I am also getting interest from Ole Mississippi and Clemson."

When asked if he has a favorite, Furr responded, "I don't really have a favorite, but I really like Clemson. Right now I am just really trying to enjoy the recruiting process."

The junior standout says he has been a Clemson fan for many years.

"I have just followed them since I was little. I have known a lot of people like Brenston Buckner that went to Clemson," he said.

Furr excels all over the field at the high school level. What position are colleges recruiting the prize recruit to play?

"Most schools are recruiting me as an athlete," Furr said. "Some want me for defensive back, some for receiver and some for running back.

"I don't really care which one I play. Whichever one gets me on the field the quickest is the one I want."

Clemson has one of its top recruiters after the prize recruit.

"Coach Napier is recruiting me for Clemson," said Furr. "He is just telling me to come up and visit so he can show me the facilities. He wants me to see everything so I can understand what Clemson has to offer."

Will the Tigers get a visit soon from the talented athlete?

"I might be coming up on the 10th of March. I think that is the first day of practice," replied Furr.

The Georgia standout would like to visit several schools before making a decision.

"I am just trying to go places. I just really want to enjoy the recruiting process. I want to go to all of them and see what everyone has to offer. I want to see what fits me the best," he said.

Finally, look for the Carver High standout to be all over the field again next fall.

"I play both ways. I play free safety and corner on defense. On offense I play quarterback and some running back," Furr added.
