LeRon Furr was always considered a prime linebacker prospect from the Peach State. He plays at Columbus (Ga.) Carver High School alongside Jarvis Jones and some good underclassmen. Now that Jones is out for the year with a broken wrist someone had to pick up the slack for the Carver defense. That person has been Furr, as he has played super during the Carver playoff run. This weekend they face Cairo in the state semi-finals.
"I think I have been playing pretty well," Furr said. "I knew someone had to step up with Jarvis being out. Someone has to make more plays. I had to do it and feel like I am a man on a mission right now."
On the recruiting front Furr now says he is down to two schools Oklahoma State and Arkansas. He has already taken his two official visits to see the Cowboys and Razorbacks. Now he just needs to figure out what school.
"I felt good at Arkansas and really got along well with the players and coaches.
"I like the campus and environment at Oklahoma State. The coaches are great there and I felt comfortable at Oklahoma State.
"It's down to those two schools. I will decide sometime by the end of this month or in early January."
