Daejuan Funderburk made news recently by announcing his decommitment from Temple. Now the Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy stand out is starting to see recruitment intensify once more.
"It's been a little slow but things are starting to pick up," said the 6-foot-1, 188-pound Funderburk. "I might go to a game at West Virginia but I need to talk to my uncle about that. I'm definitely making my first official to Arizona on December 13."
Outside of the Wildcats and Mountaineers, there are a few other schools showing strong interest in Funderburk. Although he isn't talking to many coaches right now, a few programs far from home are making a big impression on Funderburk.
"Wisconsin is very interested," he said. "Miami is sending me a lot of letters. They're on the rise again. They are turning it around. They just beat Florida and another team by a lot. There are a lot of good players on both sides of the ball. Distance really isn't a factor."
Friendship Collegiate Academy plays a strong national schedule, recently travelling to Bradenton (Fla.) Manatee, and Funderburk says there are still some things the team needs to work on to be successful.
"We just need to clean up some mistakes and we'll be fine," Funderburk said. "I'm battling some back spasms right now."
