Newest commit didn't need a hard sell

He picked Duke over several high major offers including a few SEC powers. And he's classifying his commitment as rock solid. So what made the difference for Keyston Fuller in the decision making process? We asked him just that.

"Really, picking Duke was about finding the best fit for a couple of factors," said Keyston Fuller. I'm getting the best of both worlds - big time academics and athletics."

Fuller picked Duke over offers from Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and others. And while the Blue Devils certainly recruited him hard, it appears as though Fuller didn't really need the hard sell to make the choice.

"My recruiting coach was Coach Jones, and really, Duke didn't have a main selling point with me. I already knew what the deal was with them, and Duke has always been a stand out for me with academics. I never really knew that football would come into the equation with them."

"I do think the tradition on the field is there at Duke. Regardless of the past, they've shown the program is on the come up."

Though he's highly rated as a wide receiver, Fuller isn't willing to conceed a career on the offensive side of the ball.

"Honestly I think I should be listed as an athlete. I can play on either side of the ball and ultimately the coaches will put me wherever I cam make the biggest impact."

Fuller was timed at 4.42 seconds in the 40 yard dash at the Nike Football Training Camp in March. He is also a standout on the baseball diamond as well.
