Former four star high school prospect and University of Arkansas receiver Quinta Funderburk is in Syracuse and is ready to join the football team, Funderburk’s high school coach Richard Morgan told the Post-Standard:
Funderburk was a four-star prospect who was highly recruited out of Oscar Smith in 2010. He had more than a dozen scholarship offers from schools, including SU. He would presumably have to sit out a year before being able to play.
This is great news for Syracuse. This is a player they wanted out of high school, so the coaching staff is familiar with him and knows he can play. He will have to sit out a season for transferring, but he will be ready to play for the Orange’s first season in the ACC next year. Along with Syracuse, Funderburk was also recruited out of high school by Penn State, Michigan, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida, Alabama, and Clemson before deciding to commit to Arkansas.
It should be very competitive on the hill when practice starts on Saturday.
