Michigan safety Josh Furman has one year of eligibility remaining, but he will not be spending it in Ann Arbor. Furman will transfer to Oklahoma State. Furman confirmed the news via Twitter.
Furman does not appear on Michigan’s spring roster listed online. Because Furman is scheduled to graduate this spring, he will be eligible to play right away in the fall for Oklahoma State. The move to Oklahoma State should be a good situation for Furman as well, because the Cowboys lose two starting safeties from the 2013 roster. Daytawion Lowe and Shamiel Gary both graduated to leave a couple of vacancies in the defensive backfield vacant heading in to 2014.
Oklahoma State has seven safeties on the roster this spring, including three seniors with DeShawn Franklin, Elliott Jeffcoat and Larry Stephens. Furman has some starting experience behind him at Michigan and should be able to start competing for a starting job right away once he arrives in Stillwater this summer.
