LeRon Furr is a 6-2, 215-pound linebacker from Columbus (Carver), Ga., who picked Oklahoma State after receiving up to 12 scholarship offers. He made an official visit to Oklahoma State for the Cowboys' game against Texas A&M in early October, and had narrowed it to OSU and Arkansas before calling Cowboy assistant coach Glenn Spencer with the news.
"I just felt real comfortable with Coach (Glenn) Spencer and knowing that he's going to be my position coach next year," said Furr, who may have revealed some information on the direction head coach Mike Gundy is going with his defensive staff following last week's departure of defensive coordinator Tim Beckman.
"When I went out there I got along really well with the coaches and players, and I really like the facilities and the environment around the school," Furr continued.
"I talked to a lot of people about it and a lot of them said good things about Oklahoma State. I kept hearing a lot of good things about Oklahoma State. I already knew what it was like because I'd come out for a visit (in early October). I knew it was the right place for me," he said.
We asked Furr to describe what type of player he is for the Cowboy fans who have yet to see him play? "I'm a player who will fire off the ball and get after you, and hit you in the mouth," said Furr, who states he was recruited as an inside linebacker.
Does he envision being redshirted his first year on campus? "Coach Spencer said that if I come in and work hard that I can play early," he said.
Furr was also recruited and reportedly received offers from Duke, North Carolina State, Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Middle Tennessee.
