Furr Hoping to Visit NC State

Pack Pride has the latest on Columbus (GA) Carver linebacker Leron Furr and his interest in NC State.

The state of Georgia has become a primary recruiting area for the NC State coaching staff and Columbus (Ga.) Carver linebacker Leron Furr has emerged as a priority for the Wolfpack as the recruiting process rolls on. The Pack is in hot pursuit of the athletic prospect and he wants to learn more about what they have to offer.

At 6-3 and 213 pounds Furr has the speed to wreak havoc in opponents' backfields and has been disrupting opposing offenses throughout his senior year at Carver.

"We're doing good. We're 6-2 right now and we have two games left before the playoffs. We're already in," he said.

"I've been playing real good lately. I'm just playing linebacker and I feel like I've improved a lot. I'm just finding the ball and getting to it a lot faster this year."

Furr told PackPride that he has been in touch with coaches from Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Duke and NC State recently and each of those schools are still high on his list. He is now up to 12 scholarship offers and was scheduled to make an official visit to Arkansas this weekend.

With roughly a dozen scholarship offers on the table, Furr has a lengthy list with which to work. The Pack has worked hard over the last few weeks to solidify their place among his favorites but the senior ‘backer admits he still needs to learn more about what the Wolfpack has to offer.

"Actually I don't really know too much about NC State yet," he admitted. "They've been recruiting me pretty hard and I like what they've said but I just don't know enough about them yet to say much. I do want to visit sometime but I don't know when I'll do that."

Furr took a trip to Oklahoma State earlier in the month and came away impressed with the Cowboys. In addition to the four schools that he have been in contact with recently, he holds offers from Texas A&M, Mississippi State and Middle Tennessee, among others.

Furr is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 42 strong-side linebacker in the nation by Scout.com.
