Elite national CB considering ASU visit

Top-50 national recruit Kristian Fulton is seriously considering making a visit to Arizona State and likes the opportunity afforded by the Pac-12 for defensive backs.

Four-star defensive back prospect Kristian Fulton, the No. 34 overall recruit in the 2016 class and No. 3 cornerback prospect, claims over 20 scholarship offers with Arizona State as one of them.

As the No. 1 cornerback in Louisiana from Archbishop Rummel High School in Metaire, La., Fulton has received a lot of attention from schools and ASU caught his eye.

“I like what I’ve seen,” Fulton said. “They send me mail every day. They tell me that they’re really interested…they got attention right now."

Fulton said ASU safeties coach Chris Ball has been recruiting him and their conversations have been enjoyable.

“He’s a real cool guy,” Fulton said. “We just talk about everything. He’s telling me what defense they run and I could come in and play early and stuff like that.”

Fulton admitted that early playing time is a huge factor in his recruitment. He also said playing in the Pac-12 interests him.

As a four-star prospect in Louisiana, Fulton has obviously been recruited by some of the top programs in the southeast.

Besides ASU, he reportedly has offers from Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M.

So far, Fulton said he has already visited Arkansas, LSU and Ole Miss.

When I comes to a visit to ASU, Fulton said he is interested in making a trip but does not have a set date in mind. He said he will either take an unofficial this summer or an official to Tempe during the football season.

He reportedly told Scout.com he will be making trips to Florida, Florida State, Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA and USC this summer.

At this point, Fulton said ASU and UCLA are the only schools in the Pac-12 that have offered him a scholarship.

After doing research on the conference and talking with coaches, Fulton likes the idea of playing in the Pac-12. He likes how much offenses put the ball in the air.

“It’s just good for DBs because you when get like at least 60 passes a game,” Fulton said. “So you’re getting more action, you can make plays, it puts yourself out there. That’s what interests me about the Pac-12, it’s a lot of throwing.”

Fulton competed in The Nike Opening regional in New Orleans and said he was invited to The Opening Finals in Oregon.

Fulton said he will not participating in any college camps this summer. He told Scout that he is hoping to make his commitment before the start of his senior season.

Fulton said he does not have any leaders in his recruitment at this point of the process.
