Recruiting: McKinney receiver favors two

McKinney, Texas receiver Jeff Fuller talks about his summer plans and interest in Oklahoma.

Jeffrey Fuller, WR, 6-4, 200, McKINNEY (BOYD HS), TEXAS:

JH: How is everything going lately?


JF: "Great, I have no complaints."

JH: How many Junior Days have you been to so far?

JF: "I have been to just to Texas A&M and OU. I went to A&M's and then to OU's. I haven't been to any other ones."

JH: What did you think of Junior Day at Texas A&M?

JF: "Oh, it was great. They have great facilities there. They have real good facilities. I have been there before at least three or four times. I had already met their coaches and the only thing that I saw that was new was the two new domes. That was pretty much all I found out that was new. I still like all the coaches and everything."

JH: Will you attend any more Junior Days at any other schools?

JF: "I just went to the Scout Camp this past Sunday, and I am going to go to a Nike Camp in April."

JH: How many schools have offered you at this point?

JF: "I think nine? I have been offered by Texas A&M, OU, Boston College, Wisconsin, Duke, TCU and Baylor. Those are the schools I can remember right now."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma at this point?

JF: "As far as recruiting goes, they are definitely in my top two schools. I don't have a leader, but it is pretty much Texas A&M and OU that are on top."

JH: Are there similarities in your mind between the two teams?

JF: "A&M and OU both have a lot of traditions in college football that are great. That is pretty much it. I see the two programs are pretty much the same. Offensively and defensively, they are different teams. But OU goes to a lot more bowl games than A&M does, and better bowls. I think A&M is more on the rise and their team is growing, while OU is more established. OU's program continues to get better because they have commitments from R.J. Washington, Justin Johnson and Jermie Calhoun."

JH: Which program do you think does the best job with receivers?

JF: "Every school says they are going to throw you the ball, but traditionally OU is more of a passing team than A&M."

JH: What sport are you into right now?

JF: "I am out for track. I plan on going to the regional in the triple jump (45'6). Every once in a while, I run the open 200 (22.3) and I usually am in all of our relays."

JH: Will you be back in Norman to check out the Sooners any time soon?

JF: "Yeah, hopefully I can get up there for another spring practice."
