State football champion quarterback DeRon Furr updates the recruiting process.
Georgia QB, State Champion will visit USF
"It was an incredible game." Furr added, "I scored the game-winner with 1:30 left to put us up 16-13."
With his season over, Furr says the recruiting has picked up.
"It's been crazy the last few days."
Recently Auburn replaced their offensive coordinator with Troy's OC, Tony Franklin.
"I've talked with him (Tony Franklin), they say they are still high on me and want me as a part of this class."
"But I see they are bringing in 6 QB's, to me that's a lot."
Of course that's not final until signing day.
"I'm still committed to Auburn, but I'm going to take my visits and see what's best for me."
Before committing to Auburn DeRon Furr was being heavily recruited by USF, are they back in the picture?
"I'm going to visit USF. I have a relationship with their coaches from back in the summer and I was actually at the game they played against Auburn."
"That was a great game. I liked the way they use their quarterback. Between passing and rushing the quarterback was making all the plays, that's my style. I'm not a pocket passer, I can do much more than that."
Furr says he knows the 5 visits he will take.
"It's gonna be USF, Florida State, Clemson, Georgia and of course Auburn."
Some schools are not recruiting Furr as a QB, one of those schools is FSU.
"FSU is recruiting me strictly as a safety. I like that they came out and said it because a lot of teams say I can play quarterback, but then I hear from different people that they really aren't giving me a shot there. I like that FSU was honest about where they will put me."
Playing time is important to Furr and if it means making the switch to defense he's not apposed to it.
In the next couple days DeRon will sit down with his dad and focus on setting dates for his official visits.
"I'm strong with my commitment to Auburn, but I want to take a look at my options and enjoy the recruiting process."
It's too early to tell if DeRon will stick with his commitment or not, but the fact he is looking elsewhere is a sign that he may be worried about the direction of Auburn's offense.
