"He has turned into a good blocker," Drake said. "He is a physical kid. He is a good route runner and has good hands. Like you said, he can really go up for the ball."
The 6-foot-6, 190-pound Jeffrey Fuller runs the 40-yard dash in 4.58 seconds. Fuller is the son of former San Francisco 49ers defensive back Jeff Fuller. Size is Fuller's most obvious gift, but he brings a good work ethic as well. He is already hearing from a number of Division I schools.
"He's getting letters from everybody. There are stacks of them every week," Drake said. "He is getting mail from schools across the board. If they are a big school, he has probably gotten something from them."
McKinney Boyd has a very young team this year. Coach Drake ran down several other players on his roster that could receive Division I interest with a good season this year.
"It's hard to say because we are a pretty young football team," Drake said. "Jeff's one that every one is looking at because he plays wide receiver and is so big."
"We have a running back named A.J. Jones. He is a pretty good football player," Drake said. "Robert Sparks is about 6-foot-4, 240 pounds. He has a pretty good frame."
"This is their first year to play varsity football. Jeff played last year as a sophomore, but both are getting the informational letters that Jeff is getting as well," Drake said.
