Fulse Recaps UNC Visit

Brandon Fulse visited North Carolina this past weekend for his third official trip.

"Everything went good," Fulse said. "The campus was nice, the coaches were great, [and it's] a great community."

In addition to UNC, Fulse has now taken official visits to Auburn and Texas Tech. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound tight end from Fort Meade (Fla.) will finish his official visit schedule with trips to Alabama this coming weekend and Tennessee the weekend of Jan. 21.

Shortly after returning from his visit to Knoxville, Fulse plans on making a decision.

"It's going to basically come down to where I feel comfortable at," Fulse said.

Fulse said he felt "kind of" comfortable at UNC this past weekend.

Heading into this weekend, Fulse didn't have a favorite school. He says that's still the case.

Accompanied by his mother, Fulse arrived at UNC on Friday evening.

Red-shirt freshman Bryn Renner, who will challenge for the quarterback vacancy this fall, was Fulse's player host for the weekend.

"He was just saying some of the reasons why he chose North Carolina," Fulse said. "If I come there, he said he would enjoy throwing the ball to me."

On Saturday, Fulse sat down with John Shoop, UNC's offensive coordinator.

"[Shoop] showed me how he would use me and all the route combinations," Fulse said. "We basically talked about football."

UNC's offensive system uses two types of tight ends – an H-back and a ‘Y' tight end. Fulse was informed that he could play either one.

"It doesn't matter which [tight end position] – as long as I play," Fulse said. "I just want to play tight end."

Later Saturday night, Fulse met with Butch Davis.

"[We discussed] his career, all the first round tight ends that he had, and basically he told me why North Carolina would be a great fit for me," Fulse said.

Fulse' official visit also included a tour of the campus and football facilities.
