IU lands juco LB Steven Funderburk

12/11/2012

Indiana's hot streak on the recruiting trail continued Tuesday with the addition of Iowa Western Community College (Council Bluffs, Iowa) linebacker Steven Funderburk, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Funderburk made an official visit to Bloomington, Ind., this weekend. IU co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Mike Ekeler was his primary recruiter.

During this cycle, Funderburk received scholarship offers from Alcorn State, Bethune-Cookman and Florida International.

He originally signed with Tulane in 2010 as a three-star safety prospect out of Port St. Lucie (Fla.) Treasure Coast. ESPN wrote in his high school evaluation, "Funderburk is a versatile defensive back with excellent size and athletic ability. He has good size and speed along with very solid football instincts."

The Hoosiers have 18 players on board for 2013.
