Top QB Prospect Talks SU

Devin Fuller is one of the top quarterbacks in the entire country, holds a Syracuse offer and definitely has interest in the Orange, but apparently there is a bit of disconnect when it comes to communication with the Old Tappan, N.J., product.

Devin Fuller, an ultra-athletic 6-foot, 185-pound signal caller from Old Tappan Regional High School spoke to us on Thursday about his interest in Syracuse and hopes that communication between he and the staff pick up soon.

"Syracuse offered me about a month ago and initially I met the defensive line coach (Jimmy Brumbaugh) who was the person who came into my school to offer me," Fuller said. "I bumped into him for a second, but we didn't have a whole lot of time to talk. After that I did call Coach (Nathaniel) Hackett and he told me that they did want me as a quarterback."

"He said they thought I could impact the team very early, most likely in my sophomore year," Fuller stated. "They like that I make quick decisions and thought my play making ability would really help them out there on offense. Coach Hackett was very straight forward and wasn't just telling me what I wanted to hear which I did appreciate."

We asked Fuller what his communication has been like with the staff since then.

"To be honest, it's been kind of non-existent. I don't think we've talked since then. I've just been getting generic letters … no phone calls, no emails, no handwritten letters, nothing like that. I thought they were interested when I was talking to them, but I'm not sure how important I am to them now which is just weird as I do like the school."

Fuller talked about what he likes about Syracuse.

"They have a great offense and a young, strong-armed quarterback. It's somewhat of a pro-style offense and going to the next level would be great if I had a good coaching staff which Syracuse definitely seems to have. I mean, they weren't a great football team before, but under Coach Marrone they've turned things around and have been winning bowl games. I haven't studied them academically, but I do have a lot of friends who consider Syracuse their dream school, so their reputation in that department definitely stands out to me too."

As a junior, Devin Fuller completed 95 of 143 passes for 1,886 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also carried the ball 191 times for 2,306 yards and 32 touchdowns, giving him a total of 4,150 yards and 52 scores on the year. On defense, he added 65 tackles and three interceptions. He says he can bench 250-pounds, squat 450 and has a 31-inch vertical jump.

Fuller was the only junior to be named first team All-State, was named the North Jersey Player of the Year and was named the New Jersey Old Spice Player of the Year while leading his team to an 11-1 record.
