Millersville (Md.) Old Mill athlete Josh Furman was shocked by the latest offer to come his way on Monday afternoon. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder pulled his first offer from the Big 12, a major scholarship.
"I got an offer yesterday from Oklahoma," he said. "I actually wasn't expecting it. I thought it was a different college from the ACC or Big East. Then I heard it was Oklahoma and I was like wow.
"I talked to one of their coaches and he said how much he really liked me and thought of my athletic abilities. He thought I could come in as a freshman and make an impact. It was a very unexpected offer and made my month. That's a really big offer."
Furman maintains no leaders at this time.
"This is a big offer and a really good school, they have been good for the longest time, but I like all my offers."
Furman went on to discuss his thoughts on Oklahoma in general.
"They are a prestigious school with the winning seasons they've had," he said. "It goes back ages and ages of winning team. I can't remember the last losing team they had.
"I do hope to visit them sometime in the summer."
Meanwhile, Furman plans to visit the only other school that has offered and he hasn't tripped to, Michigan in April.
The Maryland prospect is coming off a trip to Duke and North Carolina over the weekend.
"Both were good," he said. "Duke was nice. They are really big on academics and they are getting to be a better football team. I've got a feeling they are going to be good in the years to come.
"I got to see North Carolina's spring practice. I like the coaches there. They seem like great men and people. It seems like I can vibe with them."
