DE Fullwood Lands Rutgers Offer

Olney (Md.) Our Lady of Good Counsel defensive end Darius Fullwood performed well at Rutgers' Big Man Academy, and then spoke about getting offered by the Scarlet Knights.

Olney (Md.) Our Lady of Good Counsel defensive lineman Darius Fullwood is looking to major in business in college, and that was the impetus for him camping at Rutgers' Big Man Academy on Saturday.

And, of course, he got down to business as his recruitment comes to a close.

The 6-foot-4, 245-pound Fullwood was offered after his performance, and will decide June 28. He added he will camp at Maryland on Sunday, visit Kentucky on Wednesday, then stop at Duke (Friday) and Virginia Tech (June 14).

However, Saturday was about Rutgers for Fullwood, and after the camp he and his parents toured parts of the campus, and met with the coaching staff.

"I think there is room to improve in my game," Fullwood said. "But I think there were a lot of good plays throughout the drills, and I was being attentive and paying attention and listening to the good coaching. They taught me a lot of good moves, a way to improve me stance, so I think I got a lot of things out of it."

It was Fullwood's second time to campus. He attended a game at Rutgers in the fall, but this afforded him more time.

"I definitely got a chance to see a lot more, and they explained a lot more and go more in-depth on the school," Fullwood said. "I got the whole experience. I want to major in business, and they showed us their business school. I guess it's a year old, so everything is state of the art. That is something that's good that they are putting so much money into the business school."

Fullwood also got a chance to meet with coach Kyle Flood, defensive line coach Jim Panagos and defensive coordinator Joe Rossi.

"I got a chance to talk to coach Flood for about 20 minutes," he said. "My parents asked some questions, and they got their questions answered. It was a really good talk.

"(Panagos) said I could be an impact player here. For me, my family and the staff, it was good for me to get out here and participate, and just so they can see me in person, and so I can see them in person, and their coaching style. I think it was the best of both worlds for everyone. He loves my pass rushing."
