Keyston Fuller knows what Duke expects of him

Three star WR commitment Keyston Fuller is enjoying his senior season at Griffin (Ga.) High, but he’s also looking forward to his time in Durham. We spoke with Fuller about the year and his projected impact as a freshman.

“I’d say my season is going good to great,” said Griffin (Ga.) standout Keyston Fuller. “I have two touchdown receptions and around 150-200 yards receiving.”

Fuller, who chose Duke over a number of offers including Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, Mississippi State, South Carolina back in June, says he spent the offseason work out schedule focusing on improving in certain areas…

“I am really focused on running my routes and catching more with my hands. That’s what Coach Faris told me he is going to be looking for from me when I get to campus. I’ve really put in work on finishing my routes and improving my moves around the line of scrimmage. I feel that the work has paid off as I’m getting phenomenal results with both my yards after the catch and I find myself getting open a lot quicker.”

Quickness is a hallmark of Fuller’s game after the future Blue Devil clocked a 4.42 time in the 40 yard dash at the Nike Camp in March. Add in elite athleticism and you’ve got a football player who will factor in somewhere on the roster…perhaps wide receiver, and perhaps elsewhere. And that’s just fine with him.

"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."

As he’s progressed through his senior season with his current team, Fuller has also been following the Blue Devils’ progress each week.

“I’ve been really impressed with the team this year regardless of the loss to Miami. I’m impressed, but I’m also looking forward to next season as well. I have’t had a chance to visit since the summer, and I’m looking forward to getting back to campus and getting ready. I feel that once I get there my biggest challenge will be learning the playbook, but once I’ve got it down it’ll be smooth sailing.”

Enrolling at Duke is a foregone conclusion it seems as, despite the high major interest and offer list, other programs have backed off since his summer decision.

“Everyone has pretty much backed off recruiting me since then. I still get the occasional piece of mail now and then, but I don’t communicate with other schools.”

Fuller is considered a three star prospect by Scout.com. He measures out at 6-feet, 175 pounds with a personal best 40 time of 4.42. Fuller reports a bench press max of 230 pounds, 345 pounds on the squat, and 240 pounds on the power clean.
