USFNation.com recently told you the Bulls were close to offering Columbus, Georgia QB DeRon Furr, we can now report that he has been officially offered.

"Coach Gregory and I had been communicating for a while. They had a lot of interest in me and they verbally offered me two weeks ago, then I got a letter in the mail a few days later."

The 6-foot-3, 217 pound QB also has about 8 total offers including Indiana, South Carolina, Tulane, Duke and Kentucky.

"I know a little bit about USF." Said Furr, "I know they have a dual threat quarterback like myself. South Florida runs an offense that is very similar to what I run now. I also like the Tampa area."

The Bulls are not the only Florida team showing DeRon interest, he says Miami has made a strong push lately and could offer sometime in the future. Although Furr has several offers he says he's not ready to name favorites.

"I'm not ready to name any top teams. I'm going to wait until Fall to figure it out, then I will try and take official visits to those schools."

In the meantime Furr says he would like to take unofficial visits this summer to all the teams that have offered, but he knows that's unlikely.

"I would like to checkout all of them, but I don't think there is enough time. I'm going to sit down with my dad this weekend and come up with a plan."

Furr also said that it's very likely that South Florida will get a visit this summer. He says the people around him have told him not to rush into a decision and make sure that he sees several schools.

"I'm taking it slow." Adding, "When I choose a school it will be based on two major things. One is how well I get along with the coaching staff and the second is the way that I fit into the program, the type of offense that fits me best."

This offseason Furr says he has been working a lot with his younger receivers on route running and pass catching. He recently rushed for 190 yards in his spring game.

"We drafted teams and my team didn't have many receivers so I mostly just kept it on the ground in the spring game."

USFNation will catch up with DeRon Furr in two weeks and find out which schools he plans to visit.
