Class of 2013 Introduction: Ahmad Fulwood

Florida is well-known for producing stud athletes and there's a young receiver in Jacksonville with stunning size and speed. Read further to find out more about this 6-foot-4, 190-pounder who will be a sophomore this fall at Bishop Kenny High School.

A 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver with 4.53 speed?

Those measurables fit the description of a number one WR for a college program, but in this case we're talking about a young high school player, Class of 2013 standout Ahmad Fulwood from Bishop Kenny HS in Jacksonville, Florida.

"My dad is 6-foot-6 and my mom is 5-foot-9, so height runs in my family," said Fulwood, who will be a sophomore this year. "I began last season on the junior varsity team and did really good. I had 10-to-12 touchdowns. After the first seven games, the coaches moved me up to the varsity and I played safety and special teams.

"Last year, I was around 6-foot-2, so I've grown a couple of inches since then. As a wide receiver, I consider myself a big deep threat and I can go across the middle and take a hit when I need to. I pride myself on running crisp routes and rarely dropping passes. I'm very clutch late in the game too."

This summer, Fulwood put on a show at Wake Forest's football camp.

"I ran a 4.53 and I worked out with the older players at receiver," he said. "I was with the younger guys at first - and this isn't a knock on them - but I needed more of a challenge."

Fulwood would like to hear from Miami, Florida State, SMU, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Alabama, and USC.

I love the spread offense that SMU runs," he said. "I want to play in an offense that passes the ball all of the time. That way, I can make more plays, gain more yards, get my stats up, and most importantly, help my team win."
