Syracuse (N.Y.) Henninger safety/linebacker Doug Fulmer (6-4, 220, 4.5) took an official visit to Pittsburgh over the weekend (12/17). Fulmer recently received offers from New Hampshire, Villanova, and Maine. Pittsburgh has been his leader for a while; did the official visit prompt a commitment?
"I haven't committed yet, I still really like Pittsburgh though," Fulmer
said. "I'm going to think about things this week."
How did Fulmer's visit go?
"It went real well, everything was cool," Fulmer said.
Fellow New Yorker Derek Kinder hosted Fulmer on his visit; Coach Jeff Ambrosie a
Graduate Assistant who is an alumnus of Christian Brothers Academy the team that
defeated Henninger in the playoffs is recruiting him.
"When I talk to coach Jeff that always seems to come up," laughed Fulmer.
What would you consider the highlight of your trip to Pittsburgh?
"Being around the players, they all have a great attitude," Fulmer said.
One thing is for sure, no matter what happens with the coaching situation at
Pittsburgh, Fulmer is still interested.
"That stuff doesn't matter to me, Pitt will still be Pitt," Fulmer said.
"Pittsburgh has been #1 with me for a long time. I had a great visit and they
are still the team to beat.
Pittsburgh earning a BCS Bowl is something Fulmer sees as a major positive for
"That makes them standout, there are only so many teams that go to a BCS Bowl
and they are one of them," Fulmer said.
A couple of other Big East teams have begun to show some interest in Fulmer.
Rutgers and Connecticut have come to the school to get tape. Fulmer had an
in-home with Rutgers on Tuesday.
