Based on a person who would or should know, he is already at where he was rumored to be heading.
The receiver’s high school coach confirmed to multiple media outlets that, yes, his former player will be an Orange (pictured) in 2011, buttressing that by telling a Rivals.com website that Funderburk “was at the school [Wednesday] working out and… heading up there Saturday for summer school.”
The school has yet to officially announce the addition of Funderburk.
As a three-star member of UA’s 2011 recruiting class, Funderburk was rated as the No. 48 receiver in the country and the No. 9 player at any position in the state of Virginia by Rivals.com. For what it’s worth, Scout.com rated him as a four-star prospect.
He took a redshirt for his first season with the Razorbacks, due in large part to some off-field commitment issues that reportedly boiled down to homesickness for the Virginia native. It was announced earlier this month that Funderburk had sought and was granted his release from his UA scholarship so he could be closer to his hometown of Chesapeake, Va.
It was originally thought that Funderburk would reunite with his former high school teammate and Alabama transfer quarterback Phillip Sims at Virginia.
