"I have an off week and Oklahoma State matched up," LeRon Furr said of the reason he is visiting the Cowboys over the other two schools he says he is certain he will visit, Arkansas and Duke. .
"It just matched up on the schedule and I'm really excited to come out there for the visit, the game, everything," said Furr.
Furr said he didn't know any of his stats so far, but he and his teammates, defending state champs in Georgia, have moved their record to 3-2 after going unbeaten at 15-0 last season.
"I'm playing well," said Furr. "We are getting it together."
The 6-3, 213-pound linebacker is a big-time athlete and he will be one of two prospects taking rare official visits to Oklahoma State on a game weekend. The other prospect is defensive end Darius Hart, who along with his teammates at Pearl River C.C. in Mississippi are playing a top-10 showdown junior college game tonight (Thursday) with Jones Community College.
"I'm expecting to see some really nice things," said Furr when asked about his expectations of the visit. "I know they have spent a lot of money on their facilities and I'm looking forward to seeing them and the game. I want to meet the players and the coaches."
Furr said he will look at majors including business and elementary education. He also said he is uncertain of which other schools he plans to visit besides Oklahoma State, Duke and Arkansas. He has a lot of schools showing interest.
He also said he would talk with us again when he gets back from his trip to Oklahoma State.
