TBT's Fullwood talks visit, set for decision

Tajee Fullwood, Tampa Bay Tech's standout athlete is set to announce his college choice. The 3-star prospect with over 20 offers, has narrowed his choices down to seven schools, and is set to make his announcement on Wednesday. Read on to see how his recent visit to USF went and where the Bulls stand.

Tampa Bay Tech's Tajee Fullwood, a 3-star athlete with over 20 offers, is ready to name his college choice.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound defensive back/wide receiver has over 20 offers but recently trimmed his list to a top seven  and is ready to announce.

"I just am ready to get it over with, and start focusing on other things," said Fullwood. "Once the season begins I want to be able to focus on football and school and not what school I'm going to be going to. I already know what school I like.

 "Yes sir it's down to FSU, Rutgers, Louisville, USF, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt," said Fullwood. "They're all even and I have a good connection with the coaches from all seven and like those programs."

The standout athlete competed in the Battle of the Bay 7on7 this weekend and was named all tourney team at defensive back.

"It was real good and a lot of fun," said Fullwood. "I played both ways and did well. On defense nobody caught the ball on me and I had four interceptions. I also caught two or three TDs on offense."

Afterwards Fullwood made a trip over to Raymond James Stadium for the USF Saturday Night Live elite Camp. He was dinged up from the tourney, but still wanted to meet with the staff.

"They're in my top seen so I wanted to go over," said Fullwood. "I got to talk with coach Taggart and some of the staff. They were just telling me what kind of opportunity I'd have with them and how I'd fit in with the program, all that kind of stuff."

The best part of the visit for the local athlete was getting to talk with the Bulls Coach Willie Taggart

"Coach Taggart is one of the coolest coaches that I know," said Fullwood. "He's real down to earth, easy to talk with and just a cool guy. I like him a lot."

Fullwood wouldn't tip his hat as to what school he was leaning to but said what he liked about USF.

"It's close to home. They got a nice campus with great facilities," said Fullwood. "I really like the coaching staff, and all the people associated with the program, the players, fans and all that."

The Tampa Bay Tech prospect see's how Coach Taggart is trying to make an impact on the local prospects.

"He's got a few of them already and he's trying to get as many people to stay in Tampa as he possibly can," said Fullwood. "If he can do it, then that would be crazy, because I truly believe that Tampa has the best talent in the state of Florida.  Considering what the all-star teams can do when together it shows."

Fullwood knows what he's looking for in his college choice.

"Academics first, because education is big to me," said Fullwood. "I also look at whether I have chemistry with the head coach and staff, and also if I feel comfortable at the school." 

"I'm doing Wednesday at 2pm at my house," said Fullwood. "There's going to be a few T.V. stations there as well as other reporters. Everybody will know my decision then."
