Tajarvis Fuller, from Dunbar High School in Fort Myers, Florida, was an early commitment to Illinois. The safety/linebacker had been to campus before, but this time the circumstances were different. Not only was he seeing the Illini more in-depth, he also got to meet new Illinois Head Coach Tim Beckman.
"My visit was real good. I got everything I needed academics-wise, and I got a chance to meet the new coach. I got to spend a lot of time with Coach Beckman."
Fuller's time spent with Coach Beckman enabled him to get to know his future coach and get a feel for his personality.
"It was really nice. He's a cool guy. He definitely believes in sticking to his way of coaching, and I like that. He's a funny guy too. But he's about business. He got to know my mom pretty well too, and I like his personality. He made a good first impression. I look forward to playing for him."
Fuller got a chance to see a lot more this time around at Illinois.
"I got to see the facilities and everything. I got a full campus tour and saw everything."
We'll go more in-depth with Fuller soon.
