Fuller Feeling Iowa

Dre Fuller traveled to Iowa this weekend hoping to secure a scholarship offer from the Hawkeyes. Find out how things went for the Class of 2013 wide receiver from Texas in this update.

D'Andre Fuller wasn't sure what he would learn on his official visit to Iowa this weekend. The Class of 2013 wide receiver from Texas found out that he was pretty comfortable in the Midwest.

"Everybody there is a great person," Fuller said. "It's just different than the people back at home. It's all a great deal.

"It was nice. It was a great town, a great city. I really enjoyed it."

Fuller traveled to Iowa City in hopes of securing a scholarship offer. He left town without one from the Hawkeyes.

"My chances are pretty good for a scholarship offer they said," Fuller said. "They're waiting on a couple of kids to make up their minds; offers they have out to other receivers. They're waiting to see what they're doing. That's pretty much all it is."

Fuller, who plays for Mansfield Timberview High in Arlington, still is undecided about his college plan if Iowa does not extend to him an opportunity.

"I'm not too sure yet," he said. "I'm going to Nebraska next week, I believe. I also have an offer from Utah State and Illinois. I'm not too sure what I'm doing just yet."

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound Fuller reports running the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. He said the Iowa coaches like his speed.

"We talked about football for the majority of the time," he said. "We also talked about a lot of things other than football. We talked about being a leader as a man and a person."

Fuller traveled alone to Iowa.

"My parents didn't get a chance to come," he said. "I didn't know I was coming until this month and tickets were kind of high."

Fuller, who wants to study Kinesiology in college, is doing his best to deal with being in limbo waiting for an Iowa offer.

"It's unsettling but I just have to be patient," he said
