UNC Making Up Ground with Fuller

Jody Fuller made his second visit to North Carolina on Saturday. This time, the 6-foot, 196-pound wide receiver from Monroe (N.C.) Sun Valley was able to speak extensively with the UNC coaching staff.

"This [visit] was a lot better," Fuller said. "It was real cool. I got to talk to Coach [Charlie] Williams, Coach [Butch] Davis, and Coach [Troy] Douglas. I also actually got to see the place."

Fuller previously visited UNC last fall for the football game against NC State.

Throughout Saturday's stay, Fuller was with Williams, UNC's wide receivers coach.

"Coach Williams is real cool," Fuller said. "We were talking about Carolina in general and what they had to offer."

Before leaving campus, Fuller, his father, and brother met with Davis in his office.

"[Davis] was just really trying to get me to come there and asked me about school and everything," Fuller said.

Unlike most of the recruits who visited on Saturday, Fuller left campus before UNC's basketball game against Boston College.

"We just didn't have time [to stay for the basketball game]," Fuller said. "We're going to try to make it to that [UNC-Duke basketball game on March 5]."

Fuller said South Carolina, the first school to offer him, remains his favorite school, but Saturday's visit to UNC has "definitely" closed the gap, according to Fuller.

"I still like South Carolina, but North Carolina, it's a cool place – I like it too," Fuller said.

Fuller's recruitment is far from over. He plans on taking all five of his official visits before making a decision.

Besides a possible return to UNC on March 5, Fuller said he is working on scheduling a trip to Tennessee.

A dozen schools have offered Fuller a scholarship, including Clemson, Duke, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, NC State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
