Local RB likes Clemson

One of the Upstate's brightest young stars has visited Clemson several times already this season.

It's only about 20 minutes from Easley High School to Clemson, so it's no wonder that sophomore running back C.J. Fuller has been to Tigertown several times since the summer.

"I've talked to the running backs coach, coach [Tony] Elliott. He just tells me to continue to work hard, because I have a bright future," he recently said in an interview with CUTigers.com.

The class of 2014 prospect camped at Clemson last summer.

"It was pretty good," he said. "[Elliott] taught me a lot of things. He taught me to work a little harder."

So far this fall, Fuller has only visited Clemson, but he 5-foot-10, 175-pound running back would like to make a visit down to South Carolina. He attended the Gamecocks' camp in the summer, too.

Clemson sent the most mail early on, but South Carolina and Georgia Tech have also expressed interest in Fuller.

He grew up pulling for one of the schools.

"I like Clemson, I like them a lot right now," Fuller said. "When I was little, I always wanted to play there."

So far this season, Fuller has rushed for 372 yards and two touchdowns. He also has three catches for 61 yards and a touchdown. On the defensive side of the ball, he has 10 tackles and an interception.
