of Oscar Smith High (Cheasapeake, Va.) is one of the most sought-after receivers in the country, but he is not about to rush through his recruitment.
Scout.com's No. 8-rated receiver is taking in the process, but before narrowing his list or choosing a school, there is a fundamental issue that needs to be resolved.
"I don't have any favorites," Funderburk said. "I like Virginia Tech, but I'm not sure whether I want to be in state. I'm just thinking about getting out of state and experiencing something different."
Funderburk hasn't made any visits this summer, but added "I want to visit some, but I don't have any plans."
He has been the Virginia Tech campus twice, and likes what he saw.
"The only time I've been to Virginia Tech was for a state championship game, and I went there for a Nike camp," Funderburk said. "I know they've got nice facilities. I like their indoor practice field, and they've been winning bowl games. They're a good team."
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Funderburk is a strong in the air and manipulates his body well to adjust to throws. He also is a good route runner and can run past and over defenders, which is why so many of the top programs in the nation are after him.
However, getting in contact with him is not easy. He spends very little time on the computer, so email and Facebook do not work very well.
And his schedule makes it hard for him to talk with coaches during the day.
"Every day I've been going to conditioning for football, so I don't really have time to call them," he said. "By the time I get home it's late."
Four-star receiver Quinta Funderburk of Oscar Smith High (Cheasepeak, Va.) has plenty of options, but before he decides on a school he needs to decide whether he wants to remain in-state or leave the commonwealth. He spoke to VTInsider.com about his recruitment, whether he pared his list and what he thinks about location.
