I was at all the Pioneer home games this year, and Furrha was the best player on the offense. He runs much better than Nick Sheridan or Steven Threet, but isn't really explosive. His arm strength is okay (not great), and he is accurate, but his mechanics are a little funky. Right now he's much too skinny to suit up against Big Ten defenses, so expect a redshirt and then he'll be battling with Threet to backup Forcier, unless we get another QB in the class.
