San Bernardino (Calif.) Arroyo Valley quarterback Robert Fuller (6-2, 195) was waiting for the right school to offer him as a passer and not as an athlete.
When Utah State had him in for an official visit, and Aggies offensive coordinator Darrell Dickey told him they envisioned him running the offense, that was enough for Fuller.
“I committed to Utah State on my trip. They needed quarterbacks,” said Fuller, who signed his letter-of-intent earlier this month. “It was nice and the players are like family. I’ll be living there for the next four-five years and I think it will be great. I’m going to up to the spring game, and I want to move up there as soon as possible after I graduate.”
Fuller said the offense the Aggies will run, the spread, is what he ran at Arroyo Valley which made an impact.
“Utah State is just a great fit for me,” said Fuller. “They run the spread and if everything goes right, there’s a shot I could play early.”
What sealed the Aggies being his choice was their willingness to let him run the offense.
“A lot of schools wanted me to play safety or receiver. I played in the SoCal Bowl, and it was fun, but I played receiver. I want to play quarterback. Most of the Pac-10 looked at me as a receiver or a DB, but I am a quarterback first,” said Fuller.
As a senior, Fuller threw for 2,775 yards and 28 touchdowns while rushing for 880 yards and 10 scores. He made a name for himself as a junior when he set a CIF-SS record when he passed for 604 yards and eight touchdowns in a win over rival Cajon.
