"I also really like coach Jim Tressel because he's an outgoing guy and I really like talking with him," Jeff Fuller said. "They also have one of the best wide receiver coaches (Darrell Hazell) in the country. They had two receivers drafted this year and that's pretty impressive. I like how Ohio State is known nationally. Everyone in the country knows them. It's just a very prestigious program."

Jeffrey Fuller, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound wide receiver from Boyd High School (Texas), is ranked as the No. 53 prospect in the Southwest according to Scout.com. Fuller says he now has approximately 20 scholarship offers.

Fuller, a three-star recruit, said he now favors Texas A&M slightly over Ohio State, LSU, Florida, Oklahoma and Michigan. All but the Wolverines have offered.

"Michigan hasn't offered yet, but I think they will," Fuller said. "They've been coming on strong. I love how they produce big wide receivers every year."

Fuller plans on attending a summer camp at Texas on June 10 and he recently took an unofficial visit to Ohio State on June 3. "It was great," he said. "The atmosphere is real nice and it's a good area. Their team is pretty much like an NFL team in Ohio.

"I also really like coach Jim Tressel because he's an outgoing guy and I really like talking with him. They also have one of the best wide receiver coaches (Darrell Hazell) in the country. They had two receivers drafted this year and that's pretty impressive. I like how Ohio State is known nationally. Everyone in the country knows them. It's just a very prestigious program."

The only other schools that Fuller has already visited are A&M and Oklahoma. "I love the tradition at A&M," Fuller said. "They aren't as well known around the country as Ohio State, but the fans around here are amazing. I love the atmosphere there.

"Oklahoma is another great, big-time program," Fuller said. "I really like coach Bob Stoops because he's a great guy and I love how they're always on TV. They produce NFL-quality players and you're basically guaranteed to go to a big bowl game if you play there."

Some of the other schools that have offered Fuller are Illinois, Alabama, Wisconsin, TCU, Colorado, Boston College, Oklahoma State, Duke and others. "I'm still very unsure," he said. "I haven't visited all these schools yet and still want to learn more about them. I plan on taking my time. I'll go through the whole thing."

Fuller says the three factors that are going to play the largest part in his decision are academics, athletics and atmosphere. "That's what I'm looking for. I also just really want to feel at home.

"I plan to watch these schools this season and see how the offense looks and how much they pass and stuff like that."

He reports a 3.6 core GPA and is still awaiting his May SAT results.
