“I got up there I think Friday with my dad,” Fuller said. “We flew in and we got there in the morning so we got a tour of all the facilities and stuff like that. Everything was spread out over the course of the three days.”
Saturday the focus shifted to spring football practice, the Wolverines of course in the middle of 15 sessions leading up to the April 4 spring game at Michigan Stadium.
This was the first time Fuller had a chance to see the Michigan coaching staff in action under new Coach Jim Harbaugh.
“It was good,” Fuller said. “They practiced hard with a lot of intensity and the coaches were fired up and so were the players.”
“Jabrill Peppers is from my area so I’m always really watching him a lot,” added Fuller. “He stood out to me.”
As far as player moral coming of a tumultuous and trying 2014 season, Fuller says Michigan doesn’t seem like a group of guys coming off a 5-7 campaign.
“They’re very excited,” Fuller said. “They said they’ve already learned so much and they’re really glad they’re there. It’s definitely a new culture they’re building.”
Leading up to Saturday’s venture over to spring practice, Friday night served as Fuller’s first opportunity to see Michigan’s stadium, under the lights.
“That was wild,” Fuller said. “We were just in awe of how big it was and imagining how many people would be in there screaming.”
Saturday night provided the opportunity to learn a little bit more about Michigan’s program off the field and the areas of focus academically in Ann Arbor.
“The academics stand out,” Fuller said. “We had a meeting with Sheri Acho and she just went over the plan that they have for four years and it’s a really good plan.
“They’ll help you find a major no matter how long it takes them. And Michigan is, Michigan.”
The unofficial visit also gave Fuller and his father the chance to really get to interact with the Michigan coaching staff on a personal level.
Although it was the first time meeting defensive backs coach Greg Jackson, there was a familiar face roaming the sideline for the Wolverines too.
“I spent the most time with Coach Jackson and Coach (Chris) Partridge,” Fuller said. “I’ve known Coach Partridge over the years so it was cool to talk to him. Coach Jackson, that was the first meeting we’ve had and it was really good.
He’s a good guy, we went over film, I sat in meetings with the defensive backs and he’s a really good teacher, I can tell.”
Fuller says he doesn’t have any visits planned but would like to see more schools in the month of April.
As far as a decision timeline is concerned, that is also up in the air with the four-star talent stating he’s just, “going with the flow.”
Either way, Michigan made quite an impression.
“They’re up there,” Fuller said. “I’d definitely say toward the top.”
