Michigan safety transferring to Oklahoma State

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.

    Michigan has turned into the laughingstock of college football. Recruiting classes sink lower and lower and now the players are jumping from that rotted, stinking ship. This is what happens with Harbaugh, Miles and countless others don’t even return your call when your trying to hire a quality coach. Then your stuck with that “Norm from Cheers” look alike. L O L

    I read the Ohio State fan’s comment and thought it was classless. Then I read the Michigan fan’s comment with hate speech and realized Michigan is worse.

    From a neutral party that could care less about Ohio State or Michigan, Michigan fans should be embarrassed.

    spreadthecheese, you wonder why OSU fans hate Michigan so much??

    There you go…

    @ spreadthecheese: what makes you think it’s a good idea to paint two entire fanbases with a broad brush based on two comments?

    @ michiganstillsucks: get a life.

    I am a Michigan fan and the thing that cracks me up the most about all of the absurd comments are that most of them (more than likely) come from people that weren’t even born yet when Bo and Woody patrolled the sidelines and started this whole rivalry. To validate my comment: I have a life long friend that lives near Columbus and he recently told me that a lot of the fans down there seem to hate Michigan more than they like OSU and when asked why, they cannot give him a reason.

    A Michigan fan threw out hate speech in the comment section here. I don’t have to generalize the entire Michigan fan base for Michigan fans to be embarassed that one fan would say such a thing.

    You are correct. A lot of kids growing up probably cannot even remember the last time michigan beat ohio state. What are they 2-10 against them last 12 yrs?

    Hate to break it to ya Cheese but even your favorite team, who ever may be lucky enough to hold that title, has it’s share of terrible people as fans. EVERY single team had no class white trash fans, ghetto gangbanger fans, fans that are felons, homophobic morons and heck even child molesters.

    If you think for one second they don’t you’re just lying to yourself. Now step down off the high horse.

    Of course every fan base has poor segments. That shouldn’t stop a fan base from condeming that segment when it uses a slur.

    I’m with you just let it go. You’ll never win with these michigan losers.

    Dude couldn’t crack the starting lineup so he is transferring to a team that will give him playing time. Happens all the time.
