Tigers active with four-star TE

With Dwayne Allen and Chad Diehl returning to the tight ends group this fall and a pair of 2010 signees due later this summer, Clemson is looking to build on its depth at tight end in the class of 2011.

Fort Meade High School tight end Brandon Fulse, Scout.com's No. 9 tight end in the country, recently spoke to CUTigers.

Clemson is recruiting the 2011 prospect to play tight end, the position he prefers, though others are considering him as a defensive end.

"Most of them want me to play tight end. A few of them want me to play to play d-end. Most of the schools are tight end," Fulse said.

Defensive ends coach Chris Rumph serves as his primary recruiter to Tigertown.

"I haven't gotten the offer yet, but coach Rumph told me that they've got one for me down there," Fulse said. "We talked last two or three weeks ago. That's when he told me."

So far, some of his other offers include: Florida, Florida State, Miami, Georgia, South Carolina, Auburn, Michigan, Rutgers and Duke.

He claims no favorites and hasn't taken any junior day visits so far this year, but has plenty of destinations to hit this spring.

"I'm going to Florida for spring practice, Miami's spring game, one of Florida State's practices, I'm going to try to make it to Auburn and I'm going to make it to South Carolina and Clemson," Fulse said.

Although he's never been to Tigertown, former Fort Meade running back Onterio McCalebb took an official visit in September of 2007. He told Fulse that Clemson is "a great place."

"I'm definitely interested in them because they really like me—I really like them. They're in the ACC and they have a great program," Fulse said.

As a junior, he had 18 receptions for 250 yards and two touchdowns and 70 tackles, 17 for loss, and 10 sacks.
