RB Furr to transfer from UNC

With the start of practice just two days away, junior running back Hunter Furr has decided to transfer from the University of North Carolina, the school announced today.

Furr asked interim head coach Everett Withers this week to release him from his scholarship. Withers said Furr is looking for more playing time.

In two seasons, Furr carried eight times for 35 yards.

“I've enjoyed being a part of this program and I’ve developed several great relationships with my teammates and coaches," Furr said in a statement released by the school. "I feel it’s in the best interest of my football career to transfer and compete for playingtime at another institution."

If he wasn't getting PT in that running game than he must not have been very good

@Anon 4:52. That's not a valid point. Willie Parker under John Bunting (who needed all the help he could get)rarely saw PT at UNC. Then Parker with no resume went to the NFL and became an All-Pro for Pittsburgh. Sometimes all that is needed is opportunity.

He may've been a Pro Bowler, but was he ever All-Pro?

No, John, he wasn't. The only time he was even a top-5 back was 2006.
