Massanutten Post Grads Receive Interest

Woodstock, Va., is about to become a stopping point for recruiters. With two available players, coach Richard Moore has enough talent to lure recruiters.

Last week Massanutten Military Academy had one uncommitted senior receiving mid and high-major interest. This week they have two.

Joseph Fulce, a 6-foot-6 combo forward out of Texas, is no longer committed to Texas A&M. The one-time signee opted to rescind his pledge and take a look around at what options he may have.

"He didn't feel like it was going to be a good fit for him," Massanutten coach Richard Moore said.

And so the parties amicably moved on. Fulce, Moore indicated, will have plenty of people interested in obtaining his services. "People have been calling. Illinois called. Maryland and North Texas called, so did George Mason, East Carolina, Appalachian State. Nobody has really offered. Texas Tech is interested, so is Providence.

"I tell everyone that he's in between a 3-4; he's a tweener and he can score it," Moore said. "He can put the ball in the basket. There's no doubt. Everybody is saying they're going to come in and check him out."

They're already coming to check on wing Darrion Pellum. The 6-foot-5 Tidewater area standout visited LaSalle and Providence early.

Pellum Has Options
"Miami is back in the picture. Providence still wants him and so does LaSalle. UNC-Wilmington has got in with him and Joseph (Fulce). North Carolina State is back in on Pellum. A lot of it is waiting to see some film on him (with State and Miami).

Virginia Commonwealth is also recruiting him.

At this month's Rhode Island prep school showcase, Pellum won't be playing. Moore said his scorer will miss the event to take the standardized test. Miami could get a visit and so could Oklahoma.

"He can shoot it and he's 6-foot-6 and 215; he's athletic. I have him running point right now. He can do it all and college coaches are going to take a chance on a guy that's 6-6, can shoot it and is athletic."
