Kristian Fulton ready to hit the road

LSU cornerback target Kristian Fulton has a busy summer planned, and he still hopes to have his commitment made before the start of his senior season.

METAIRIE — Kristian Fulton has looked forward to this summer for a long time.

The four-star cornerback hasn’t had many opportunities to venture out and explore colleges. That’ll change over the next few months though, as he plans to hit the road and see several. The programs on his tentative itinerary — Texas, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Florida, Florida State, USC, UCLA.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Fulton said. “It’ll be a big trip this summer, because I’m looking to narrow it down and commit before the season.”

The next visit he’ll take will be much closer to home. He plans to attend LSU’s Bayou Picnic on May 30, which will be another addition to the long list of visits he’s made to the in-state school.

He was last there for the Spring Game in April and always enjoys himself in Baton Rouge.

“I’m comfortable there,” Fulton said. “I talk to the coaches all the time. It’s just a real fun time up there, every time…I just want to hang around the coaches and some of the other recruits. I just want to have fun up there.”

LSU assistant coaches Frank Wilson and Corey Raymond, his two lead recruiters, went by his school last week. Those two play a large part in what makes the Tigers a serious contender in Fulton’s recruitment.

“[Coach Wilson and I have] known each other for a long time,” Fulton said. “We have a good relationship. We just talk about everything. That’s how tight our relationship is….[Coach Raymond and I have] have a good relationship too. We watch film together and have a good time, talk about a lot of things.”

These upcoming visits will help Fulton narrow down his long list of suitors. He also has some factors in mind that should help his decision.

“Early playing time,” Fulton said, “how good I have a relationship with the coaches and I want to get a good education.”
