Texas A&M are about four hours from Fuller's house, as are Oklahoma and Texas. "They are all pretty close and it's not like I've followed any of them or anything," Fuller said. "You know there's always pressure to stay in Texas and play for UT or A&M, but I won't let that affect me. Nobody else knows what's best for me. Only I know what's best for me..."

Texas' Jeffrey Fuller, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound four-star wide receiver (No. 36 nationwide) from Boyd High School, has 28 scholarship offers and denies a favorite.

"I don't really want to say I have a favorite because I'm still open," Fuller said.

Although he denies a leader, Fuller favors Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, LSU, Florida, Michigan and Ohio State. All of them have offered. "All seven have something I really like," he said. "I could see myself playing for any of them."

The only camp that Fuller attended was A&M. "It was a great," he said. "I liked getting to meet all the players and coaches and it's a great place for football. They have a lot of fan support and I like the atmosphere there."

The Aggies are about four hours from Fuller's house, as are Oklahoma and Texas. "They are all pretty close and it's not like I've followed any of them or anything," Fuller said. "You know there's always pressure to stay in Texas and play for UT or A&M, but I won't let that affect me. Nobody else knows what's best for me. Only I know what's best for me.

"Texas is a big-time school and has some great fan support too," he said. "But Oklahoma is also a winning team every year and they go to top bowl games all the time. There's not much not to like about OU."

Fuller, ranked No. 33 in the Southwest by Scout.com, says the main factors going into his decision are "academics, athletics and atmosphere," saying that he'd prefer to stay somewhat close to home. "It helps if a place is close, but I won't knock a school out just because of distance.

"I've been to Ohio State before and really liked it," Fuller said. "It's wide receiver U. They have so much great tradition and talent it's amazing.

"Michigan is very similar, although I haven't been there yet. I like their offense and how much they pass the ball."

Another school that Fuller hasn't visited yet, but says he'd like to is LSU. "It's in a great conference and the SEC plays against some of the best competition in the country," Fuller said. "They also put out great players every year. I don't really know too much about them yet and that's why I really want to visit them."

He reports a 3.6 core and a 1200 two-part SAT.
