"I'm a very determined person," Fuller said in May after notifying BF.com that he qualified. "I'm looking for good things to happen -- for them to see a lot out of me. I'm getting prepared and I can't wait to get up there to see everybody."
Fuller was one of the gems in the OSU class of 2004, fielding more than a dozen offers before making his pledge to the Beavers. USC, Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Washington State, Washington, Colorado, Nebraska and Texas A&M all offered Fuller by September of his senior year.
His senior season, Fuller rushed for more than 2,037 yards and 24 TDs. He's been timed in the 40 at 4.45 and has a vertical leap of 36-plus inches. In over 35 years at the Charter Oak helm, coach Lou Farrar said he's never coached a running back better than Fuller. He added that he's just as good a person as he is a football player, something that comes through loud and clear when talking with the multi-talented back.
Fuller has the power to take it up the gut and also the speed to bounce it outside and take the corner. On Signing Day, coach Mike Riley described him as "...a great-looking kid, a nice-sized kid, and again, his production has been outstanding. I've seen him practice basketball and he looks athletic and powerful and quick and fast, so I'm excited about him."
