Trey Fullwood has a favorite and it’s not NC State but there is still time for a shakeup at the top. The Wolfpack will be trying to best one of their newer league foes.
Louisville is the school that has made the best impression on Fullwood so far. Earlier in the year it was reported that Florida State had offered Fullwood (6-1, 189). The Tampa (FL) receiver did not make mention of the Seminoles in an interview last week. It is possible that things have not developed between FSU and Fullwood the way it appeared they might.
It is also possible that Louisville has made Fullwood a pitch that he warmed to. Louisville recruits Florida well and they are able to catch almost anyone’s attention when they talk about their 10 players drafted only weeks ago.
“I like the city and I really like the coaches and just the environment.”
Even though recruiting is still young for Fullwood he has already had different schools he has liked depending on when you ask him. That means there is room for hope if you are NC State or another school. Another reason for hope could be Louisville’s commitments from receivers Rodjay Burns and at the beginning of this month Seth Dawkins and Chris Taylor-Yamahona. Louisville has nine commitments and with one third of those receivers it could be that their focus will be more directed to other positions.
Fullwood would hope that is not the case but he is not closing any doors. NC State is an offer he learned about in the last few days and while he is not as sure of what that school is all about he wants to hear what the coaches have to say.
“It’s been about a week since I got that one. I got a card from the coach that came. I was talking to him on Twitter. We talked a little bit on Twitter after they offered. They had told me that they liked my film and really think I can play. They think I’ve got good film. I can’t say I know too much about them yet.”
That is not the end of the story. Behind the scenes Fullwood and the people most involved in recruiting on his behalf quickly made plans for him to visit NC State. He might be withholding an opinion now but he should be able to speak out soon.
“I’m supposed to be coming up there in June for a visit. I know I’m going to be going to Louisville too.”
Louisville’s in state rival Kentucky is a school that Fullwood is thinking could be one of the next to offer and former Louisville conference rivals in the Big East such as Cincinnati and USF have been doing all of the usual work that schools do before they take the step of offering.
Fullwood is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 149 wide receiver in the nation by Scout.com.
