Furr enjoying recruiting process

Deron Furr wants to accomplish one thing during the recruiting process (well at least right now): to enjoy himself. That is exactly what he is doing.

"I love it," the Carver-Columbus quarterback said.

Furr said he has heard from just about ever school around including Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, South Carolina, Auburn, Alabama, Florida and Florida State, but isn't ready to rank them.

He holds offers from South Carolina, Clemson, Kentucky, Indiana, Duke and Tulane.

"I'm still waiting," he said of an other to play in Athens. "Hopefully it will come."

If one does come, Furr said playing close to home matters.

"I really would prefer to stay close to home with my family nearby," he said. "I'm trying to just find a school that best fits me."

The instate player has already visited and met with tight ends coach David Johnson, his recruiting coach.

"Coach Johnson, he made me feel like I was welcome and could play there and fit in," Furr said.

Furr enjoyed his trip to Athens and liked the campus.

"I've already been hearing it's one of best college campuses," he said.

Furr will return to the Georgia campus this summer for a camp and will also attend camps at Georgia Tech, Alabama, Clemson, South Carolina, Indiana and maybe Ohio State.

Before that, and even afterwards, Furr will be looking to enjoy himself. He said he likes meeting other top recruits, working out in front of lots of coaches and meeting them.

"I like meeting new people in general," he said.
