Three-star wide receiver Quinta Funderburk took his first official visit this past weekend. The Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith wideout made the trip to Arkansas for the big game against Alabama.
"I enjoyed myself, I had a great time up there," he said. "I arrived on Saturday morning and they showed me around the locker room. On Sunday, they really showed me the campus. I liked it a lot; I especially liked the weight room. That is one of the biggest weight rooms in the country."
Of course, the game was the highlight of the trip.
"It was a good game," he said. "I was really into it and I really thought Arkansas was going to pull it out.
"I really liked how they spread the ball around, everybody gets to touch the ball and it was a real big-game atmosphere."
Funderburk was hosted on the trip by wideout Joe Adams.
"It was great, we had a good time and he told me a lot about Arkansas. He was real with me."
Before heading out on Sunday, Funderburk spent more of his time with the coaching staff including head coach Bobby Petrino.
"They just kept it real with me," he said. "They told me that they wanted me and treated me like they wanted me the most out of all the recruits up there.
"Coach Petrino is a good man. He knows his stuff and I believe he's the best offensive coach there is at getting the ball around. I really enjoyed myself."
Funderburk added that he is down to four schools now in Arkansas, Michigan, Florida and West Virginia.
"I have more officials," he said. "I'm going to Florida for the LSU game (October 8th), Michigan for the Iowa game (October 15th) and West Virginia for the Cincinnati game (November 12th).
"I just want to have a good time like I did at Arkansas and find a good fit."
On the field, Funderburk has helped Oscar Smith to a 3-1 start.
"The season is going well," he said. "We took a loss in Ohio, but we're trying to make a state championship.
"I'm doing well this year. I have over 100-yards in every game and four touchdowns total."
