WR Quinta Funderburk to give FCS a shot

Wide receiver Quinta Funderburk has played for both Syracuse and Arkansas, but now appears to be headed to an FCS program after only managing three catches for 50 yards in 2013, his only significant stats across both programs.

Funderburk has announced that he will play his final season of eligibility for the Norfolk State Spartans of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC). As a graduate transfer, plus the fact that Norfolk State is an FCS program, he will be eligible to immediately suit up and play for the team.

Orange head coach Scott Shafer announced back in March that Funderburk would be leaving the program after not reeling in a single pass last season. When he originally was granted his release from Arkansas a few years back, he stated that he wanted to be closer to his home state of Virginia, as Funderburk played his high school ball in Chesapeake.

Hopefully, after coming out of high school as a three-star recruit, Funderburk can finally live up to the hype on the FCS level.

Norfolk State opens the season on the road against Rutgers on September 5.
