NFTC: WR Fuller Has One School On Top

Will Fuller

WESTMINSTER, Md. -- Roman Catholic High (Philadelphia) receiver Will Fuller is one of the best in the region, and he showed that again at Saturday's Nike Football Training Camp. He spoke to about the camp, a few new suitors, and which school was on top in his recruitment.

WESTMINSTER, Md. -- Roman Catholic High (Philadelphia) receiver Will Fuller didn't get the 1-on-1 reps he hoped for at Saturday's Nike Football Training Camp at McDaniel College, but it didn't mean it was a lost day.

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Fuller continued his impressive spring with a strong showing in the route-running and catching department, and also learned a new trick in getting off the line of scrimmage quicker.

"The coaches helped me," he said. "Coming off the line, they told me that when I smack a defensive back's arms off of me, I show a little bit too much of my body sometimes. I'm going to start working on."

Fuller is one of the region's top receivers, and his offer list is starting to grow. His latest offer came from Boston College, and he also has offers from Rutgers, Delaware, Massachusetts, Temple and Toledo.

In addition, Notre Dame and Purdue are showing him a lot of interest.

"Rutgers is my top school right now," he said. "Out of all my other offers, I don't think I talk to those schools as much as I talk to Rutgers."

Fuller has been a consistent visitor to Rutgers, with his latest trip coming the day before the Scarlet-White spring game.

The recent interest by Notre Dame and Purdue coincided with Fuller's strong showing a pair of 7-on-7 events.

"A lot of schools came by during the spring, but Notre Dame is showing me the most interest," Fuller said. "They seem very interested. They came by twice, and same with Purdue."

The Irish are speaking with Fuller about extending an offer.

"I talked to the coach a few times (Monday), and they were going out to 15 schools and they were watching kids run routes with their quarterbacks," Fuller said. "They told me I need to improve (academically) but they were still going to recruit me.

"They're looking at more receivers, but I should have one soon."

Fuller added a key aspect of his recruitment is getting his SAT score back and improving his academics, both of which he is working hard to do and is on the right path.

And it is the academic standing of Notre Dame that caught his eye.

"I don't know a lot, but they're very prestigious," he said. "They're top at graduation (rate) in the country. The whole team is 98 percent."

Fuller doesn't plan on attending anymore combine or 7-on-7 events, but he does plan on making a few camp stops to see a few schools.

"I'm signed up for Penn State, Notre Dame, Rutgers," he said. "And I'm going to go to whatever camp my quarterback (Michael Keri) goes to." Recommended Stories
