Offers piling up for Funderburk

The offers are starting to roll in for Daejuan Funderburk. The defensive back from Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy has seven offers and more schools are poised to send Funderburk another offer.
"Most recent offers I have were from Maryland, Marshall, Florida State, Rutgers and Old Dominion," said the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Funderburk. "I also have offers from Georgia Tech and Tennessee.
"I know Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher told me about the facilities and what they are going through," he said. "Old Dominion doesn't really talk to me too much but they just want me to come down and visit. Tennessee, Georgia Tech and Rutgers also want me to come for a visit. They told me that their defensive backfield is where they need some help on defense. I've been getting the most attention from Rutgers, Florida State and Georgia Tech."
Which school does Funderburk think will offer him next?
"I think South Carolina or Clemson will be the next to offer me," Funderburk said. "They are recruiting my teammate Jalen Tabor really hard so now I'm starting to get some of that attention as well."
What kind of plans does Funderburk have for the offseason?
"I have a lot of visits to do this spring and summer," he said. "I really want to visit Florida State, Florida, Rutgers and possibly South Carolina. I want to get to a few camps at Florida State and some at other schools like Maryland and Virginia for their junior days."
How will Funderburk decide which school to attend?
"I'm going to be looking at area, climate, academics, coaching staff and defensive scheme," Funderburk said. "I want to major in athletic training so that is a big deal also."
Last season, Funderburk helped Friendship Collegiate Academy to an 8-3 record.
