Hawkeyes high on Fuller

With a couple offers on plate, seems a program out of the Big Ten and another from the Mountain West could change the game for Mansfield (Tx) Timberview receiver D'Andre Fuller.

"Gaining weight, getting stronger, the small stuff," listed D'Andre Fuller as he analyzed his senior season, where he stands, and where he needs to be come spring graduation. "I played really fast this year, and it showed on film. I did well playing fast; definitely improved on my one-step cuts, my route running. I thought I stepped up as a leader, too- especially when things weren't going our way. When Josh (Smith) wasn't able to do his thing, when teams took him away, I had to step up and make plays."

"I liked my blocking this year, but obviously know that it can always be better. I'll be spending these next four to five months polishing every aspect of my game, make sure I'm ready come time to leave for college."

Things have certainly ramped up for the under-recruited prospect just in the last three weeks. Fuller looks to add to his Central Arkansas and Stephen F. Austin offers.

"It all really started the week after Thanksgiving Break. When we got back, I was getting called into the fieldhouse every day, had two coaches a day, three coaches a day coming or calling. Whether it was a small school or a big school, it was crazy, it was amazing. It's a blessing, though, all in all."

Biggest two schools that have entered the picture: Iowa and New Mexico

"I about fell over when coach told me they wanted to talk to me… They both said they like my speed. New Mexico hasn't offered yet, they're kind of skeptical about my size. I'm not 6-foot-2, but they like my speed and what I do with a football. So does Iowa. They want fast."

"Iowa's told me I'm high on their recruiting board, and they want me out for a visit. So I'm going up there Jan. 25. They're coming down for an in-home visit after dead period, too."

"I'm hoping they offer. They said they're really interested. We'll see."
