Markelle Fultz talks Arizona and Washington

Five-star Markelle Fultz talks about his recent visits, what is next, and if a decision could come soon.

Five-star combo guard Markelle Fultz has been one of the busiest players in the country the past few weeks. Between all-star camps and official visits, Fultz has been all over the country and recently took a pair of West Coast official visits.

First Fultz made the trip from his home in Washington D.C. to Tucson to check in on Sean Miller and Arizona.

“Arizona was a really nice visit,” said Fultz of the trip. “They have nice weather, and even though it rained when I was there, it was a really nice campus and I got to meet the players. I didn’t know any of the players before the visit, so that was good.”

Fultz continued about the Arizona visit, “I got to talk to Coach Miller about what my role would be if I were to go there, and that was good. I think I could fit in well with what they do playing the one or the two. I think with me and the players they have returning that we would win a lot, and I could see myself there.”

After a quick pit stop back home, Fultz then made the cross country trip to Seattle to spend time with Lorenzo Romar and the Washington Huskies.

“It was my first time in Seattle and it was a good time,” said Fultz of Washington. “I got to experience that part of the country, and also got to meet the players there. It was just a good opportunity to see Coach Romar and Coach Chills again as well as meet the rest of the coaching staff, and build an even better relationship with everybody around campus.”

Romar and his staff brought in a big and highly thought of recruiting class in 2015, and Fultz feels like he could fit in well with that group.

“They are young, and most of them will be coming back when I would come in,” noted Fultz. “They would know what it takes with that year of experience, and they could push me. I feel with my playmaking ability it could help them over the hump and help them do big things. It should be fun to watch them this year because they will be young, but they also will be talented.”

The visits to Arizona and Washington came after an earlier official visit to Louisville. The plan all along has been to take those three official visits and then discuss what the next step in his recruitment would be.

About what is next, Fultz said, “It has been really busy this whole process. I have been doing a lot of traveling and just got home yesterday. Today I am going to sit down with my mom and Keith (Williams) and talk about my recruitment.”

Fultz continued, “If I feel comfortable I will make my decision, but if I don’t I will plan some more visits and keep going through the recruiting process to make sure I go to the right school.”
