Josh Furman ‘s recruiting card

Old Mill (Millersville, MD) athlete Josh Furman traveled to the University of Michigan last weekend, making what was his first official visit. The 6-2, 195-pound senior was impressed by the experience, but for now he doesn’t appear close to making a verbal commitment. He discusses his first official visit as well as a possible visit to Virginia Tech.

Of Michigan, Furman said, “It was the first college game I’ve gone to. The first one ever. The atmosphere was ridiculous. I loved it. The fans were going crazy. The coaches are very, very down to earth. I got to hang out with the players. They were friendly, actually. I asked them a few questions about Coach Rod and they gave me honest answers. They’re pretty happy with him. They’ll be a really good team with him. As long as he is there, they should be a good team.”

Furman was impressed by more than just Michigan’s players and coaches.

“Going into this visit, I was looking forward to being surprised and I was,” Furman said. “The academic support there is one of the best in the country. They have great academic support people. That and the Strength and Conditioning program was great. I’ve been to colleges, but I’ve never been to a college that did so much strength and conditioning stuff I didn’t even know about. The facilities, the techniques…you can tell they put a lot of money into it. They get out good results.”

Michigan is high on Furman’s list, but another favorite appears primed to get its chance to impress soon. Virginia Tech, a school the talented athlete visited unofficial earlier this year, is likely to be Furman’s next official visit destination.

“I’ve been thinking about it and I could see myself at Michigan,” Furman said. “Right now, I’m just relaxing. I’m relaxing, looking at these teams on TV. My next official hopefully will be to Virginia Tech on October 10th. I was talking to Coach Sherman about it and he said that would be a good date for taking my official. They are gathering transcripts and all that. I’m sure it will be an official I’m taking and I think that will be the date.”
