2009 RB takes unofficials

2009 running back Hunter Furr out of Lewisville (N.C.) Mount Tabor holds one offer from the ACC. The 6-foot-0, 197-pounder is getting interest from a variety of other schools and has even visited a few over the season.
"I've taken unofficials this year to Wake Forest, North Carolina, Clemson and Virginia," he said. "They've all gone well. I went to Clemson for a night game and running down the hill, it's hard to beat that.
"North Carolina has a revamped program which is awesome. Wake Forest is my home school. I live in Winston-Salem and Virginia has a great atmosphere too."
At this time, Furr holds one offer from Wake Forest, but believes other schools could be coming.
"North Carolina, Clemson and Virginia are really close. They just want to see junior tape."
Numerous other schools including Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, NC State and Alabama have also shown interest.
The junior tailback confirmed a top five.
"My top five are Wake Forest, North Carolina, Clemson, Virginia and Tennessee," he said. "Wake sticks out a lot since they have offered and I've known the staff since my freshman year.
"I am looking around at a lot of schools. The first thing I want is a huge atmosphere where fans are passionate about football. Another thing I'm looking for is a place I can play early and obviously a great academic school and a team that wins."
Furr has helped Mount Tabor to an 8-2 record and a No. 2 seed in the playoffs.
"We've played well and hit an obstacle and lost two straight," he said. "We've come back strong and won two big games recently.
"I think we can make a good run to the semifinals for sure and then after that anything can happen. If it goes right we can make it to the championship."
Furr has only played in eight games due to a dislocated shoulder, but so far has posted 120 carries for 900-yards and 13 touchdowns.
"I've been happy," he said. "I stepped up my game from last year. My blocking is much better. I'm getting a lot of pancakes."
