Two of the top players in Georgia will be back in Clemson for the second time in about a month when the attends the spring game in Death Vally on April 14. DeRon Furr and his teammate Jarmon Fortson, who attended Junior Day at Clemson in March, will be back in Death Valley to see the Tigers once again later this month.

"Yeah I am going up for the spring game," Furr told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "Jarmon will also be coming. We will drive up together."

Another visit is on tap for the prize recruit this week.

"I am going to visit Georgia Tech this week. We have spring break this week," said Furr. "I am also going to visit Alabama sometime in the next few weeks."

When asked about his current leader, Furr responded, "Clemson is still my leader. I love Clemson."

Furr says his teammate Jarmon Fortson is also very high on the Tigers.

"He loves Clemson too. His is just waiting for them to offer," said Furr.

Clemson assistant coach Billy Napier is keeping Furr up to date with the Tiger's progress this spring.

"They are telling me that they are looking good in practice so far. They are going to be a team to beat next year," said Furr.

The Tigers are waiting to check some transcripts before offering Furr and his teammate.

"They are going to check on my GPA and stuff. They will be coming by the school once they can start visits again. I am pretty sure they are going to offer."

Several of the top programs in the South are showing early interest in Furr. The biggest question for many teams is where to play the talented athlete.

"I am also hearing from Indiana, Louisville, Georgia, Florida State, Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia Tech," he said. "Most of them are trying to figure out where to play me. Most are recruiting me as an athlete. A few are looking at me for quarterback."
