All-American Tight End to Announce Thursday

Under Armour All-American Brandon Fulse, who has Auburn on his list of five finalists, will make his college choice known this week.

Fort Meade, Fla.--Four star tight end Brandon Fulse has scheduled an announcement on his college choice on Thursday.

The 6-5, 245-pound prospect from Fort Meade High School says that he will choose from a list that includes Auburn, North Carolina, Tennessee and Miami. Alabama, which was in his previous listing of top teams on Sunday, did not make his final four.

This past weekend he took an official visit to check out Tennessee and said he had a "great" time in Knoxville and that he really likes head coach Derek Dooley.

Fulse took an official visit to Auburn for the Georgia game in November and rated it a 9.5 on a scale of 1-10.

Ranked as the No. 13 tight end prospect in the country by Scout.com, Fulse caught 25 passes for 338 yards and six touchdowns while playing in nine games. He also contributed six sacks on defense

Prior to his official visit to Auburn, Fulse was on campus to check out the Tigers' victory over Clemson and made several other visits prior to that. He is friends with Auburn sophomore running back, a former star at Fort Meade High.

The Under Armour All-American said he likes Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, tight ends coach Jay Boulware and head coach Gene Chizik. "I have a great bond with them--Coach Malzahn and Coach Boulware and Coach Chizik," Fulse said. "I have Onterio there who can show me around and take me under his wing. Other than that I just feel so comfortable around the coaches. I can be laid back with them. I just feel comfortable around there."

Fulse is expected to make his announcement live on TV on ESPNU at 4:30 p.m. CST on Thursday.
