The offer list for Fulmer includes Clemson, Louisville, Marshall and Southern Mississippi. Who is the leader for the star receiver? "Right now Clemson and Louisville are neck and neck," stated the prize recruit. Fulmer has already scheduled official visits with Clemson and Louisville for January.

Why are the Tigers one of the leaders for Fulmer? "First, they have a great coach. They also have a great school as far as academics. I like the area. I'm from a small town so I like the atmosphere."

Fulmer has been very impressed with Coach Dabo Swinney. "The way Dabo approaches recruiting is one of the best I've seen," stated the star receiver.

The standout athlete plans to take his first visit to Clemson on November 8 to see the Tigers battle the Seminoles. "I will be coming to the Florida State game. I will be bringing my parents, sister and aunt. This will be my first trip to Clemson. We are going to come up early and spend the night after the game."

The 6-0, 175 pound prospect, who runs a 4.45 forty, is pleased with his team's effort this season as they are heading to the playoffs with a 7-2 record. "We're doing good as a team. That's what it's all about. We have 3 freshmen quarterbacks so we're having some trouble passing the ball."

How will the W S Neal High School prospect decide where to attend college? "Once I take the official visits I will decide. It's all about how they treat me. I will look at the academics. I want to make sure that I can transfer some of my classes. I am already taking some college level classes." The talented receiver would like to major in business management.
