Furr Leaves Auburn

By Jay Coulter

Auburn is reporting tonight that Auburn quarterback turned safety DeRon Furr is leaving the university and will seek to play elsewhere. Speaking to Auburn Sports, Furr's father said that he would be completing the withdrawal papers on Wednesday morning.

"We just want to thank Auburn University for giving DeRon the opportunity to go there and learn to be a student and an athlete," said his father. "We just want to tell Auburn that we thank them very much for that chance."

Furr enrolled at Auburn early and participated in spring drills. The talented freshman played quarterback early on, but was later moved to defense where he practiced at the safety position. There's no word on where Furr might transfer.
