Fulwood Full Of Excitement

Yes, he's only a junior. Yes, it's early. But Ahmad Fulwood is taking his college recruitment seriously.

Ahmad Fulwood took a break from his homework to marvel about Clemson's "crazy" season so far in 2011.

"I am excited for them. It's the craziest how well they are doing and it's not like I didn't expect it because I knew they were good. I talk to coach Scott pretty much every day and he tells me about the receivers.

"We talk about Sammy (Watkins) and what it's like being a freshman playing at Clemson because he sees that happening for me. That's really cool to me. I'm visiting there November 12th."

Fulwood is eagerly anticipating time in person with wide receivers coach Jeff Scott and others at Clemson.

"I just want to work on my relationships with everyone there. It should be exciting to visit and all."

Speaking of visits, Fulwood recently welcomed a visitor to his territory. Coach Charlie Weis spent some time at Bishop Kenny HS recently.

"A lot of people told me that coach Weis only comes somewhere if he really wants you," he said. "He doesn't just go around making a lot of visits. That really meant a lot to me. It was great to know he was there watching and he is interested.

"I really like Florida. I had fun at my last visit there for the Alabama game and I could see myself doing a lot in Florida's offense so that's good too. I need to get my mom on the phone with coach Weis but I also talked to coach Quinn recently and coach Muschamp this week. It's good to talk to all of them."

Alabama got the edge over Florida in that game and the Tide remains undefeated. Fulwood is impressed by the success in Tuscaloosa this year.

"Alabama is on a roll for sure. It's fun to watch. I wish I was going to the Alabama- LSU game but I can't get up there. I'm kind of glad I get to watch it at home with my friends, though, because it's such a big one," he said. "Sometimes I just like to watch those at home so I can really see what's happening. I get the most mail from Alabama. They are really staying in contact."

Other than his visit to Clemson on November 12th, Fulwood says he doesn't have any other trips set in stone.

"I might go to the UF game against FSU later on in November. It depends on what is going on with my high school team because we are making a strong push for the playoffs."
