Fuller Sees Stock Rise

2013 Nick Fuller has seen his recruitment pick up in recent months. With the offers piling up, he talks with BillikenReport.com about who has been most recently involved.

As the only returning starter on his Sun Prairie High School team, junior Nick Fuller knew he had to serve as a leader and make an impact.

The season was incredibly impressive as he racked up a conference Player of the Year award and the offers have come piling in.

At 6-foot-7 and 195 pounds, Fuller sees himself as a multi-dimensional player.

"As an offensive player, I like to shoot the ball and I also like to penetrate," Fuller said. "Defensively, I like to help the team out. I try to get on the rebounds. I'm the kind of guy that likes to do whatever to help our team win."

Fuller, who runs with the Wisconsin Swing on the AAU circuit, believes that the select ball has helped him develop his game tremendously.

"I love playing against good competition," he said. "It always makes you get better. The last two years I've played up with a great group of Swing guys and we play a lot of good competition. That's the good part, we get to play against great competition."

From mid-to-high majors, Fuller has seen a lot of different schools come calling.

"I have offers from Creighton, Marquette, UW-Milwaukee, Butler, Drake, Northern Iowa, Toledo, Saint Louis, and Illinois State."

Although he doesn't have any favorites quite yet, he does have a decision timetable set for this summer.

This April, Fuller plans on stopping by SLU on his way to a tournament in Kansas City. He has also visited almost every other school that has offered, as well as Wisconsin.

"I talked to an assistant coach a couple times on the phone and we've kind of gotten to know each other," Fuller said of the Billikens. "Then [Rick] Majerus came up on Saturday morning and watched me work out and then he offered after the workout."

Strength and quickness are among the biggest areas of improvement in his game, according to Fuller.

"I've been trying to get a lot stronger and quicker," Fuller noted. "Also, basketball-wise, I've been trying to do a lot of ballhandling to handle the bigger and little guys."

The criteria for his decision may be a bit unorthodox, but it's understandable.

"I want to go somewhere that I wake up every day and I want to be there," Fuller said. "It's like a big family. . .somewhere you love being and is just a good fit for me to be at."
