Fulse Enjoys Auburn Game Experience

Big Brandon Fulse talks about his visit to check out Auburn take on Clemson.

Fort Meade, Fla.--One of the top tight end prospects in the South took an unofficial visit to Auburn on Saturday for the game against Clemson and came away very impressed by what he saw. Big Brandon Fulse has offers from all over the country and is working with a list of around 10 schools at this point but says Auburn definitely put itself in good position this weekend.

"I loved it," Fulse said. "The atmosphere, it was my first experience on game day and I loved it. The crowd was crazy after the game. Basically overall I just loved the atmosphere around there.

"I had been up for the spring game and I liked the atmosphere then," he added. "It wasn't a real game atmosphere with a lot more people. Fans were roaring and going crazy. It wasn't like that at the spring game."

Fulse said because of his familiarity with Auburn and with several more schools he wants to check out, he doesn't plan on taking an official visit to check out the Tigers. He said though he's certain they'll be one of the schools on his final list of schools and he plans to be back in Auburn for either the LSU or Georgia game.

"There's also Florida State, Miami, USF, Texas Tech, Oregon, Tennessee and North Carolina," Fulse said.

Getting a chance to spend some time with his former teammate, Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb, Fulse said he enjoyed seeing the players celebrate the win and also was happy to have the chance to talk to the coaching staff and get an even better feel for them.

"After the game they brought us in the locker room," Fulse said. "I spent some time with my former teammate Onterio McCalebb. I like how they group up and sing like a family. That's real important.

"I talked to all of the offensive coaches, coach (Gus) Malzahn, I spent some time with him," Fulse said. "Coach Jay Boulware, the tight ends coach. I sat down and talked with coach (Gene) Chizik. That was pretty nice too."

With only Philip Lutzenkirchen as a true tight end on Auburn's roster at the moment, the Tigers are looking for help at the position in a big way. C.J. Uzomah is already committed and could be a versatile player down the road for the Tigers, something Fulse could do as well.

"They don't have any tight ends," Fulse said. "They are hurt right now. They are talking to me about how they really want me and how they would use me, all of the positions I could play. They sat me down and talked to me about that.

"I do that now at my high school," Fulse said. "I play fullback, wideout, slot receiver, tight end with my hand in the dirt. That's the same things coach Malzahn wants me to do. I would basically be ahead of the game. That's pretty nice."

Fulse originally planned to make his decision in November but said he now plans to wait until sometime in December before he pulls the trigger. He noted that he doesn't want to wait until signing day before making his choice so he can avoid the pressure associated with that part of the recruiting process.
