Central NY DB still looking for first offer

Henninger High School (Syracuse, NY) Football coach David Kline has an idea but still can't believe that D1 School has offered his star player Doug Fulmer yet.

"I am really mind boggled that he hasn't gotten an offer yet but I think it's because a lot of recruiters don't think he is qualified, but he is. Doug is fully qualified and can play football for any Division 1 program next year."

Coach Kline went on to say that Doug did have academic problems but has gotten them straightened out.

"Doug is carrying a 85 average in school right now and scored over 900 on his SAT. He really buckled down in school after last season. That is why I really confused he doesn't have an offer."

When I talked to the former Henninger coach Bob Campese in April he said Syracuse was showing the most interest but that has changed.

"Syracuse was the no. 1 school recruiting Doug but for whatever reason they haven't shown that much interest since the summer."

The schools showing the most interest in Doug right now are Pittsburgh and Rutgers.

"Pittsburgh said they will be coming to see one of his games this year so I think there is a good chance they will offer him. Pittsburgh is showing a lot of interest in Doug since he camped there this past summer."

Fulmer hasn't done much this season as his undefeated Henninger team has been blowing everybody out and he rarely plays past the first half.

"It hurts Doug that were blowing out all these teams because there is really no tape to show any of the schools yet. He hasn't played enough but the bottom line is he is a 6'5, 220 pound Safety/Wide Receiver that can play well on both sides of the ball and is fully qualified academically. Doug not getting a D1 offer by now just not understandable. He deserves it and will be a steal for whoever gives him one".

Fulmer is a 6-foot-5; 220-pound defensive back that made Fourth Team All-State and First Team All-Central New York in 2003. Fulmer has been a starter on the football team since his sophomore year and is also a standout basketball player. He was the starting power forward and helped his Henninger High School basketball team win a section title. Fulmer is widely considered as being one of the top 20 football players in New York State in 2005.
