CUTigers recently caught up with Brandon Fulse for the latest on his recruitment.

Fulse spoke to Rumph, his main recruiter from Clemson, shortly after his trip with Napier to Fort Meade.

"I talked to (Rumph) about two weeks ago," Fulse said. "He was just happy that he came down and saw me. He basically just wants me coming up there in the summer, see the campus and visit with all the coaches."

Plans for a visit to Clemson have not been made, but there is a timeframe.

"It's going to be in the summer, though," Fulse said.

That remains the same for other schools on his radar.

"I'm planning on getting out there in the summer," Fulse said. "I don't have anything set up for sure."

As far as favorites go, he did name some without an order.

"I've got a few," Fulse said. "Auburn, Florida State, Miami, Texas Tech, Clemson, Alabama and Georgia—those are a few."

He's been offered by several others, including: Michigan, Oregon, Florida, West Virginia, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Once he knocks out some visits in the summer, Fulse can then start evaluating who he likes.

"After the summer when I go to visit and see what schools I like, after the summer I can cut my list," he said.

Fulse grabbed 20 receptions for 265 yards and two touchdowns as a junior. Defensively, he had 70 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 10 sacks.

"Some schools are recruiting me for defensive end, but the majority for tight end," he said.
