The Right Breed

Keyston Fuller is a rising name in the southeast. The Griffin High (GA) star has seen his stock skyrocket during the spring evaluation period. In the past 24 hours or so, Fuller has picked up a pair of new options, one from the SEC Western division of Bulldogs of Mississippi State.

"Georgia State offered me today and I believe that brings me to ten or eleven," said Fuller. "Mississippi State offered me yesterday.

"As a matter of fact, I was talking with Coach Hev (John Hevesy) from Mississippi State about five minutes ago and we were setting up a time for me to get out there for a one day camp between June 4th and 14th."

Mississippi State's spike in interest reached an apex yesterday.

"I was messaging back and forth with coach yesterday and he told me that they want me to be the right kind of Bulldog," said Fuller with a laugh. "I have an offer from Georgia, so I knew they were telling me I needed be a Mississippi State Bulldog.

"I asked him if I had an offer from them and he told me that I did.

"They told me that they really want me to come there and that they love what I can do on the field."

Fuller believes that he has what college coaches are looking for in a wide receiver.

"I feel like I am really good on the underneath routes and I will do what I have to do to get open," said Fuller. "I am good on the deep balls too.

"I like to be able to make plays down the field and I like to use my speed."

Several schools have shown varying levels of interest, but three schools appear to be making Fuller a priority lately.

"The schools that I have been talking to the most are Mississippi State, Georgia, and Duke," said Fuller. "I am still open, but those three have been in touch with me a lot."

Schools looking to improve their place in the pecking order still have time to make a move.

"My mother and my step father are going to be a big part of my decision," said Fuller. "I know they really want me to wait until after the seasons, so there is not all of this hype about who I am committed to during the season.

"I just want to keep things low key, while I am thinking about everything."

The school that lands Fuller will have to win him and his family over with more than football tradition.

"My major is going to be a big part of things," said Fuller. "I want to major in business, so I want to go to a school that has a very good business degree.

"Even if I was fortunate enough to go to the NFL, that is not going to to last forever.

"I am going to need a good education to fall back on.

"I want go get a great degree, so that when I go in for an interview that if things are even they will hire me, because of the quality of my education."
