Ga. WR Looking to Visit

Keyston Fuller, a 2015 prospect, is working on the details to visit North Carolina this Saturday when the Tar Heels host Virginia.

"We're figuring out how to work out the transportation," Fuller said. "The game is at 12 [pm] and we have a playoff game this Friday. We'd have to either leave right after the game or early Saturday morning. Or I may look into an early [Saturday] morning flight. I'm talking that over with my parents."

UNC is one of two schools to have offered Fuller, a 6-foot, 178-pound wide receiver from Griffin (Ga.); the other school being Georgia Tech. He's also hearing from Georgia and Clemson.

The two offering schools are also the two schools that Fuller says are sticking out.

"It's not because they're the first two to offer, but because of the location and they both have majors that I would like to pursue," Fuller said. "I'm looking into real estate and chemical engineering and maybe little something with accounting."

If travel arrangements work out, this Saturday's trip will be Fuller's first to Chapel Hill – and the state of North Carolina, period.

"I really want to see as far as tradition goes what they do prior to the game," Fuller said. "I want to see their routine. I want to see what the coaches do and what they expect out of their players. Just so if I were to go to the school, I'd have some knowledge of what to expect."

Late last spring, UNC became the first school to offer Fuller.

"Honestly, that meant a lot to me," Fuller said. "I honestly didn't think I would get an offer as early as I did. It was very surprising to me as I learned more about North Carolina I realized it was a great deal."

Since the UNC offer was extended, Fuller says that he and Chris Kapilovic, his primary recruiter, try to talk once a week.

"He's just asking me how [Griffin] is doing, how we're looking over the weeks, how I'm doing," Fuller said. "He's asking me if I've been watching them play. It's casual conversation and he'll put me on the phone with other coaches."

Kapilovic has also touched on how Fuller fits into UNC's offense.

"He says they see me being a playmaker for them as a speed receiver," Fuller said. "He said they need a speed guy that can go out and be explosive and make plays for them."

Fuller is a part of a very talented receiving corps that also includes two other '15 prospects with offers – Darquavious Mangham and Georgia pledge Christian Owens. The trio has helped Griffin to a 9-0 record. On limited opportunities, Fuller has accumulated 500 all-purpose yards and five total touchdowns.

"Every time I get the ball, I try to make things happen because I know I can't be the main read in the progression all the time," Fuller said. "I know other people have to touch the ball, too."

Thus far this season, Fuller has attended games at Georgia (vs. South Carolina) and Georgia Tech (vs. UNC and Syracuse). He also camped at Alabama over the summer.

"I want to go out to the west just to see how it is out there," Fuller said. "Maybe a UCLA visit, Oregon, Texas – schools like that."
