Fulse Plans To Schedule Oregon Unofficial

Four-star Fort Meade (FL) athlete Brandon Fulse is a player who could conceivably excel at either tight end or defensive end in college. While he prefers to play tight end at the next level, Fulse is open to suggestions and is looking for the school that will fit him best; distance is no factor. eDuck sat down with Fulse recently to get the latest on the recruiting front.

Do you currently have an offer from Oregon?


What kind of contact have you had with Oregon since the recruiting process started for you?

"I've been talking to them on a regular basis. He (the coach) came down here twice and we talked a week ago. We've been talking a good while."

Who was the coach from Oregon who you talked to?

"Coach Tom Osborne."

Was he the one who extended you the offer?


How often would you say you guys talk?

"Once every week, two weeks."

How long ago did Oregon offer you?

"About a month ago."

What is your overall interest in Oregon?

"I like them a lot. They use their tight ends, so I'm looking to Oregon."

Is there anything in particular that really stands out to you about Oregon?

"Their uniforms."

Are most schools looking at you at tight end or defensive end?

"Majority of them are tight end, but I have a few that are defensive end."

Do you have a preference?

"Tight end, but I still like defensive end."

Is distance a factor for you?

"Distance is no factor to me. I'll go play anywhere. If Oregon is the best fit for me, then I'll go to Oregon."

In your conversations with Coach Osborne, have you guys discussed you coming out to Eugene for a visit?

"Yeah I was going to come during a bye week for us -- I was going to make it to one of their games -- but it's an away game for them (Oregon) and they can't get me tickets to away games, but I'm gonna try to make it out this summer for an unofficial visit."

How would you describe yourself as a player?

"I'm a hard working player, I'll do anything for my team, I'm a team player, I'll make any sacrifice for the team and just be a leader and a hard worker."

Would you compare yourself to anyone at the collegiate or professional level?


What are you looking for in a program?

"A good relationship with the coaches, academics, playing time, and the campus -- whether or not I feel comfortable at the campus and if it feels like home to me."

Have you given any thought as to what you might want to study when you get to college?

"My first thought was business but I don't know right now. I'm undecided about that."

What are some of the offers that you have right now from other schools?

"Florida, Florida State, Miami, South Florida, Auburn, Alabama, Texas Tech, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Marshall, West Virginia, Louisville, Tennessee, so many I forgot..."

Do you have a top list of schools at this point?

"Right now I have 24 (offers) and I have a top 15 right now...my top 15, not in order because I don't have any leaders is: Tennessee, Louisville, North Carolina, West Virginia, Oregon, Michigan, Georgia, Clemson, Texas Tech, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, South Florida, and Auburn."

Who is recruiting you the hardest right now?

"The one I just named are recruiting me pretty hard...some of them just offered me so they're keeping me in the rotation, but schools like Florida State, Miami, Texas Tech, Auburn, Alabama, Clemson, Georgia are recruiting me hard."

Have you taken any unofficial visits anywhere this spring? Do you have plans to take any this summer?

"I went to Florida State's Spring Game, I went to Miami's Spring Game, I went to Auburn's Spring Game, I went to Florida for one of their spring practices. In the summer, I'm gonna try to get to Alabama, Texas Tech, Clemson, Tennessee, Georgia, etc. I'm gonna try to get to those. I'm gonna try to get to my 15 and after that, probably before my first game, I'm gonna try to cut that down to 10 or five."
