Josh Furman - UM’s Newest Commitment
Here is a short summary overview of Michigan recruit Josh Furman of Millersville, Maryland.
Overview: Josh is a super, all-purpose athlete with excellent to superior physical measurables. He possesses a good combination of size and speed. Josh is capable of playing either linebacker or running back, but he will probably end up on the defense side of the ball (hopefully).
Strengths: Josh clearly has above average quickness and gets off the ball quick. He also has excellent straight-line speed and acceleration. Josh is an aggressive defender who will hit hard and plays with some edge to his game. Josh hustles, is very good in pursuit, and is an excellent blitzer!
Needs Work: He is a bit stiff at times and must learn to bend his knees and play with better leverage against top-notch college athletes. Josh’s coverage skills need to improve and his lateral movement is not on par with his straight-line speed. He plays better at the line of scrimmage than in space and his backpedal needs some work.
Reminds us of: With his linebacker size combined with safety speed, Josh reminds us of former Michigan Wolverine great Larry Foote.
