2013 Intro: Justin Fieulleteau

RALEIGH, N.C. --- Justin Fieulleateau would like to follow his brother to North Carolina. The 6-foot, 170-pounder at Wakefield High School may have to make a position switch to do so.

Scouting Report

"He's obviously not as big of a receiver as his brother, but he's a little more athletic," Wakefield head coach Rod Sink said. "He played receiver last year, but most schools are more interested in him as a defensive player than an offensive player."

Prep Career

As a junior, Fieulleteau was mostly a third or fourth option in Wakefield's spread offense, but still managed 13 receptions for 219 yards and two touchdowns.

Wakefield returns two of its top three receivers for the 2012 season. Thus, moving Fieulleteau to cornerback is under consideration.

"When it comes down to it, we're going to put people where they need to be to help our team out," Sink said. "If he could play defense and help our team out there, that's where he's going to play. If we could help him out [recruiting-wise], we'd like to."


Earlier this week, Fieulleateau's brother Jordan verbally committed to North Carolina.

"We want to go to the same school," Fieulleteau said. "We want to be a package deal, but if it doesn't happen then we won't be mad if we went to different schools."

The only thing preventing Fieulleateau from following his brother to Chapel Hill is a scholarship offer. UNC is his favorite school.

"I like the school, I like the campus a lot, and I really like their coaches – they really make you feel at home," Fieulleteau said. "I like the way the new coaches just jumped in and filled in for the old coaches. They just treat you really well there."

UNC is among the schools that project Fieulleteau, who is mostly receiving interest from in-state schools, as a cornerback on the collegiate level.

"[UNC] said they're looking into offering me, but they haven't yet," Fieulleteau said. "I assume they're close. I think they want to see me in camp to see if I'm able to do it."

Fieulleateau isn't opposed to moving to cornerback.

"I had thought about [moving to cornerback] this upcoming season, but once they told me that it just confirmed that that was what I should do," Fieulleteau said.

Although Fieulleateau lacks experience at cornerback, Sink believes his reps on offense will provide an added mental advantage.

"It gives you an idea of how to read the offensive player because you already know what he's thinking," Sink said. "You're thinking, ‘if they're running this, this is how the footwork should look.'"

Like his brother, Fieulleateau has made countless visits to UNC. The most recent occurred last week for the Tar Heels' Junior Day.

"Most of the time, we hung out in the lounge talking to the coaches and the recruits that were there," Fieulleteau said. "We ate and then we took a tour around the football facilities. Then we went to the Dean Dome and walked across the court when [the basketball teams] were warming up and then went to our seats."

Besides UNC, Fieulleateau has visited Duke and NC State. He plans to visit Rutgers in March.

Extra Notes

In addition to football, Fieulleteau participates in the long jump and triple-jump on Wakefield's track team… Fieulleteau is from Queens, N.Y. After his father passed away while he was in elementary school, his family spent a year in Georgia before settling in Raleigh.
