Wide receiver prospect Jeffrey Fuller entered his junior season playing on the inaugural Boyd (TX) HS football team. The Blazin' Broncos had a tough road in its first season of Texas high school football, going 0-10. However, the lack of team success has not stopped college coaches from pursuing the 6-foot-4, 200-pound junior wide receiver.
"I have offers from Texas A&M, OU, and OSU," Fuller said. "I've visited all three schools so far and they all have a lot to offer."
Fuller grew up in California where his dad played in the NFL. However, he has returned with his family to the Lone Star state where his father starred as a defensive back for Texas A&M.
"When my father came back (to A&M), he said a lot of things had changed with the community and the campus," Fuller said. "But he said something that will never change is the tradition and the quality of people there. He loves it."
That admiration for Texas A&M has carried down to his son.
"A&M is unlike anything I've seen before. The facilities are unbelievable," Fuller said. "It's all first rate and I think the coaches are great."
But while the Aggies are very high on his list, the receiver is also looking hard at several other schools, including Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
"OU has all the national championships. They have a great strength and conditioning coach and they throw the ball a lot," Fuller said. "I went to OSU with some friends and had a good time. They are making very nice changes to the stadium and I like the staff."
While those three schools have been pursuing Fuller for a while, several big name suitors are taking notice and entering the fray.
"Both Michigan and Ohio State are planning to stop by the school. Ohio State said they may offer me," Fuller said. "Texas also stopped by and invited me to campus for an unofficial visit in a couple of weeks so I'm going."
Asked if a Texas offer would be significant in his recruiting process, Fuller said it would.
"If Texas offered, it would open things for me," Fuller said. "It's a good school and they've done great things with wide receivers like Limus Sweed and Roy Williams. They would be one of the schools I look at closely."
Fuller says academic support programs is his top priority in evaluating schools, followed closely by the athletic program (success, facilities), and finally the game day atmosphere.
He plans to attend several summer camps of his top schools but doesn't have a schedule worked out yet. He would like to make a final decision before his senior season starts.
