The 5' 11", 185-pound receiver out of Wilkinson County was hoping to pick up a couple of offers this spring during the evaluation period but practice has been put on hold and so have the college recruiters. To learn more about the situation, read below.

"Our practice has been postponed for the last two weeks," added Devin Fosselman. The superintendent will not let us practice. Hopefully we are going to start next week. We are still supposed to have our spring game. They are trying to get the situation straightened out so we can practice this week."

Has this set the team back?

"We can work out on our own off the school grounds, but we can not work out as a team. I do think it has set us back because we are putting in a new offense, and we have to get that straight."

Devin reeled in 47 passes for 1,035 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior.

"I think my speed and hands are my biggest strengths. I have real good hands, and I can go up and get the ball. All you have to do is throw the ball up, and I am going to go up and get the ball."

Have any colleges come by the school despite the lack of practices?

"USM and MSU came by last week. They gave me a call that night. Southern Miss was telling me that they can not wait to see me practice so they can evaluate me more. State was supposed to come by here today to watch me practice but oh well. I am going to call them and see what they are going to do. They are evaluating me too."

Southern Mississippi is the only D1 program that has offerred. Who could be next?

"I think it will be either MSU or Ole Miss. I have been talking to Ole Miss a lot lately too. They have been wanting me to come to their camp because they came down here to watch me practice but it was cancelled."

Has Fosselman had a chance to visit all three campuses from the D1 colleges in Mississippi?

"Yes sir. Ole Miss' campus was just huge. Everything, football facilities, all of that. I really liked their campus. I liked MSU too. I also feel like I can help them out at receiver. I would probably play a little quicker if I went to MSU. USM, it was nice too."

Are there any colleges involved outside of the state of Mississippi?

"No sir, not at the moment."

Has a timeframe been set for a decision?

"I am going to wait until after my season is over so I can see who all is going to offer me. I just want to go where I can help the team progress the most."
