"I went up to Mississippi State and Saturday for the camp," said Furlow. "I had a good time up there and I got to learn a lot.

"I got to work out with Coach (John) Hevesy and he's a real good coach."

Hevesy had some positive feedback for the robust and rotund big man, but also some constructive comments to help round out Furlow's game.

"Coach Hevesy told me that he really wants me to work on my footwork and work hard to stay low," said Furlow. "He told me that he liked me and that he was glad to see me up there.

"He told me he wants me to work on everything and then come back up there next month when they have the Big Dawg camp and work out with him again."

The visit to Starkville appears to have made a strong impression on the rising senior.

"I really like it up there at Mississippi State," said Furlow. "It feels like home to me.

"I am not sure if I am going to go there or not, but right now they are up there at the top.

"They are the team to beat for sure."

Several other programs around the southeast have expressed some serious interest in the Plantersville, Alabama product.

"I was supposed to go to Kentucky this weekend, but I am taking the ACT," said Furlow. "They wanted me to come to Southern Miss today, but I couldn't make it.

"I am going to be going to Alabama, Auburn and Georgia too.

"Southern Miss, Auburn and Georgia have all talked about offering me after I come and see them."

Furlow reports that he has not set a time frame for a his college decision.

"I am not sure when I am going to decide," explained Furlow. "I want to go to all of these camps and then I am going to talk with my family."
