Fulwood hopes to be another weapon

Ahmad Fulwood gave his verbal pledge to Florida back in April at the Gators' spring game and he hasn't looked back. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound wide receiver of Bishop Kenny (Jacksonville, FL) won't be enrolling early, but he still can't wait to get on campus and contribute.

The need for playmaking wide receivers on the Florida roster is evident and 4-star wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood is eager to help in any way he can.

"I'm just trying to add another weapon to the offense," he said.

"I believe I can stretch the field. With the receivers they have right now, the quick, speedy guys on the top, I feel like I could stretch it out, make it more of a wide-open offense and open up the run-game more."

Since committing to the Gators, Fulwood has completely shut his recruitment down. He isn't talking to any other schools but Florida, and he talks often to Florida Head Coach Will Muschamp, Offensive Coordinator Brent Pease, and Wide Receivers Coach Bush Hamdan.

"They're the greatest coaches alive, besides my high school coaches. Coach Hamdan's awesome, he's a cool guy, especially stepping in this season, he's doing a great job with the receivers he has," Fulwood said.

"Coach Pease is always like, ‘I wish I could have you this week,' but he's excited, more than anyone. When I go up there, he treats me like his own son, and there's not much more you can ask for."

Fulwood and his close friend and future teammate, Florida safety commit Nick Washington, have been to almost every Gators home game this season and the Florida / Georgia game.

"(Florida has) been coming out tremendously, even in the Georgia game. It sucks that they had a bad game, but we're still on top, we're still going to ball, just trying to win the SEC East right now," Fulwood said.

Even though it will be awhile before Fulwood steps on the Florida campus to stay, he's already looking forward to getting to work.

"I know (Florida Strength and Conditioning) Coach Dillman's got a weight plan ready for me right now, there's a lot a lot of weight that needs to go on this body, hopefully they can build me into the tall, physical receiver everyone wants me to be," he said.

Fulwood looks to finish his senior season strong and will also be competing in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January.
