Fulse's Full Mailbox
Brandon Fulse, the 6-foot-5, 245-pound four-star tight end from Fort Meade, Fla., is taking his first official visit this weekend (Nov. 13) to Auburn, which could turn out to be quite a weekend considering all the controversy surrounding Tigers' quarterback Cameron Newton. Fulse is excited about his upcoming trip. "I'm hoping to have a good time," he said. "I can't wait to get to know the coaches better. Coach Gene Chizik and (offensive coordinator) Gus Malzahn are both great. Coach Chizik is real smart and likes to joke around but is serious when it's time to be serious. He's a players' coach." Fulse says he's been very impressed with how the Tigers have managed to go undefeated this season. "I love how they battle every week," he said. "They win. They're still undefeated and can win it all. I'm definitely expecting them and Oregon to play for the national championship. "I haven't really followed the Cam Newton stuff," Fulse stated. "I've heard a few things, but it's not me and it does not affect me. "I don't plan on talking to them about it. I don't see it being a factor as long as it doesn't affect me at all…right now it doesn't." But Fulse hopes this controversy ends quickly. "I hope it gets resolved so everyone can move on," he said. Ranked as Scout.com's No. 12 tight end, Fulse still denies a leader but favors Florida State, Miami, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Oregon, Texas Tech and North Carolina. All have offered. Last weekend Fulse attended the Florida State/North Carolina game, which the ‘Noles lost 35-37. "It was a tough loss," he said. "But it was a great time being there. I like the atmosphere there a lot. The fans are great and very loud." Despite the ‘Noles recent losses, Fulse says he believes the program is making a comeback. "I like what coach Jimbo Fisher is doing," he said. "They've had a few miscues this season, but it's coming up and getting better." Another Florida school that Fulse hopes is on the upswing is Miami. "I was one of those people earlier this season that thought they were back to being like old Miami," he admitted. "I thought they'd win the ACC this year and be a BCS contender…that hasn't worked out." Fulse plans on taking all five of his official visits before making a decision. "I want to see what kind of chemistry I develop with the coaches," he said. "Being comfortable is the most important thing." Making his decision even harder is that fact that all the schools are recruiting him equally hard. "My mailbox is full everyday," he said. "I'm hoping to have it down to five soon," Fulse said. "I want to take the rest of my trips as soon as our season ends." He says he plans to commit in early January. "I don't want my phone ringing off the hook the day before signing day," he said. "I don't want to have to deal with all that." Fulse has helped lead his team to a 9-0 record with 25 catches for 338 yards and six touchdowns. He also has six sacks on defense. He reports a 3.2 GPA and a 14 ACT, which he retook on Oct. 23.
