ATH C.J. Fuller Profile
Though he profiles better as a defensive back, it's possible that Fuller
could play running back at the next level.
"I grew up as a running back, but I got introduced as a corner. I'm just
going to try to work hard on both sides of the ball. I'll play either one.
I'm good with it," he said at Easley during an interview with
Clemson is the only college campus he's been on thus far in the recruiting. But Fuller would also
like to visit South Carolina and Georgia in the near future.
What other schools would he like to see?
"Nowhere too far -- somewhere around here," he said.
This summer, Fuller said he will camp at Clemson, South Carolina and
possibly North Carolina.
Fuller feels comfortable down the road in Clemson.
"I like the atmosphere. It's a family there. They don't leave anybody
behind. If you're on the lower level, they work with you. They care about
academics a lot. They're willing to work hard," he said.
And he grew up pulling for the Tigers.
"I like Clemson. Growing up, I liked Clemson, but I'll try to keep my
options open," he said.
In his previous coaching stop, Easley head coach Chad Smith coached
former Virginia Tech cornerback Stephan Virgil and Terrell Hudgins, an
All-American wide receiver Terrell Hudgins.
"C.J. Fuller is probably the best athlete I've coached and he's a rising
junior…you're talking about a kid who ran a 10.39 in the 100 at the
Pickens track meet this year," Smith said.
"He benches right around 290.
Right now, he's around 190 pounds. He'll probably be up to 200 by the
season. He's definitely going to get tired of us handing him the ball."
Fuller had 115 carries for 805 yards as a sophomore.
