Fullwood Talks Michigan, Possible Visit

Onley (Md.) Our Lady Good Counsel High 2015 three-star DE Darius Fullwood discusses the Wolverines, his interest in Michigan, what a U-M offer would mean to him, a possible visit to Ann Arbor and more.

Despite breaking his foot midway through his junior season at Onley (Md.) Our Lady Good Counsel High, 2015 three-star defensive end Darius Fullwood is still generating interest from schools from across the country.

In fact, the 6-foot-5, 240-pounder has offers from Iowa, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, NC State, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Florida State, Miami (Fla.), Michigan State, Ohio State, Stanford, Tennessee and Virginia among others.

But now that his junior season is over, Fullwood says he is "100-percent" healthy is focused on getting his recruitment into full swing. Michigan is among schools showing increased interest, and three-star DE says he is thinking about taking a visit to the Ann Arbor in the near future.

"I would love to take a visit there," Fullwood said. "I have never been to the state of Michigan before and the MSU coaches asked me to come take a visit too. So I have been talking to my dad to getting up there and seeing each school.

While Wolverines have yet to offer Fullwood, he wasn't shy on his feelings if they were to send one his way.

"Of yeah, I would love to be offered by them," he said.

With spring-summer coming up, Fullwood says he plans on taking as many campus visits as possible.

"I want to get out to a lot of junior days," Fullwood said. "I know I can't make them all, so I am trying to figure it all out. Most coaches have told me to come to their spring games and practices, so I will probably do that. I know I want to get out to Ohio State and Penn State though."

Currently, Fullwood says he doesn't have a top-five and should have a better idea once he starts taking more visits.

"I used to have a top-five set up," Fullwood said. "but with everything picking up and all these coaches coming to see me. I decided to put it off. I will probably have one in about four weeks."

As far as a decision timeline, Fullwood says he would like to make his final decision in the spring.

"I am really trying to commit in May," Fullood said. "That's not set either now though because I have no idea how the offseason will go. Deciding in May is what my parents and I think is the first and best option though."

In the meantime, Fullwood says he will be working this off-season to have strong senior campaign.

"I really want to work on my agility and speed, things like that. I also want to add strength, which will come from me in the weight room."
