Dejon Funderburke, one of the area’s best high school football players, plans to play his senior season for the Milton Panthers.
The 6-foot, 180-pound Funderburke, who has committed to play collegiately for the University of South Alabama in Mobile, will join Florida State commitment Isaiah Jones. The duo could be one of the top receiver tandems in the state. Funderburke caught 31 passes for 720 yards and seven touchdowns and ran for 362 yards and four scores as a junior for Pensacola’s Washington High School in 2011. He has lived with his uncle in Milton for three months.
Jones is 6-4, 210, and caught 33 passes for 462 yards and five touchdowns last season.
