Rutgers to Make Fuller's Top Five

PARAMUS, N.J. — A last-minute touchdown for Paramus prevented Old Tappan Northern Valley Regional High (Old Tappan, N.J.) from winnings its first game of the season. Four-star recruit Devin Fuller spoke after his team's 20-14 loss about cutting down to five schools and said Rutgers will make the cut.

PARAMUS, N.J. — Rutgers will make four-star recruit Devin Fuller's top five when he cuts down his list.

Fuller's offer sheet skyrocketed in the offseason, but Rutgers was the first to offer and remained around the top of his list through the entire process thus far.

"Rutgers is definitely safe," Fuller said. "I know all the coaches and I love all the players they have there."

Rutgers initially offered Fuller as an athlete, but began looking at him much more seriously as a quarterback after he played in the Schiano 7-on-7 Shootout this summer.

Fuller, who decided last month that he wants to be solely a quarterback in college, said the Rutgers coaches told him he would get that shot if he came to Piscataway.

"I'm friends with some of their commits and I feel comfortable there," Fuller said. "They're building a strong class. I know I can fit in great there."

Fuller's complete top five list is coming soon, he said.

"I'm pretty close," Fuller said. "I don't know exactly when.

Old Tappan Northern Valley Regional High (Old Tappan, N.J.) is off to an 0-2 start with Fuller as the quarterback. In last night's 20-14 loss on the road to Paramus, Fuller had his hand in every positive and negative play for Old Tappan.

Fuller lost two fumbles and threw an interception in the red-zone, but responded well in the second half and led Old Tappan to re-take a 16-14 lead in the final minute before Paramus responded with a score of its own.

Fuller finished 17-for-29 passing for 248 yards and ran for 53 yards on nine attempts.

Defensively, Fuller lined up at free safety in the first half and registered seven tackles. Two of Fuller's tackles came in one-on-one situations on the goal-line and saved touchdowns.
