Numerous colleges have come in for in-school visits with one coming to his home tonight (Sunday, December 12th).

"I've had a bunch of in-school visits the past few weeks," said Fuller, who has scholarship offers from Mississippi State, Troy, Clemson and Middle Tennessee State. "Georgia Southern has come in. Mississippi State has come in. Clemson came in. Troy State came in. There were some others, but I can't remember all of them. Mississippi State is supposed to come to my home this Sunday (December 12th). Coach Drayton had already stopped by the school. He and Coach Croom are supposed to come in."

As for official visits, he has two lined up.

"I've set up official visits to Troy State on January 7th and Mississippi State is supposed to be on the 14th (of January)," said Fuller, who is being recruited to play safety in college. "I don't know about Clemson now. Their coach just came in and told me that they just got two commitments at my position. So, right now, I don't know about them."

His favorite list is narrowed to two.

"Right now, my favorites are Mississippi State and Troy," said Fuller.

What does he like about each?

"I like that (Mississippi State) is an up-and-coming team," Fuller explained. "They are just a few years away (from being good). And they have a good coaching staff. Coach Drayton and Coach Croom are real serious about me and want to come down and see me as soon as possible.

"(Troy's) recruiting coach went to a high school near here. They are a real good team in their conference. They had a couple of close games against a couple of really good teams, LSU and South Carolina."
