Bruin's Younger Brother Holds 4 Offers

Old Tappan (N.J.) Northern Valley class of 2016 quarterback prospect Jordan Fuller holds four offers and is making a Saturday visit that could result in a fifth...

Jordan Fuller already knows tricks and recruiting can take from watching his brother, UCLA receiver Devin Fuller, go through it.

Now, the class of 2016 quarterback from Old Tappan (N.J.) Northern Valley, is beginning his process, and it takes him to Penn State on Saturday.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Fuller already holds offers from UCLA, Virginia, Boston College and Rutgers, and he is speaking with Notre Dame.

Penn State recruited Devin Fuller, but there have been two staff changes since the meat of is recruitment, so he is eager to learn about the program.

"I know there is a lot of tradition," Jordan Fuller said. "There is a new coaching staff, but I know at one point they were known as Linebacker U. and I know the fans are (loyal). They said they had a lot of interest and they wanted me to get up here as soon as possible."

Fuller's first offer came from Rutgers before his freshman season, but he isn't in much contact with the Scarlet Knights' staff.

UCLA offered in the fall, and it came while Fuller was enjoying a big season while playing quarterback and receiver.

He was a backup to a senior so only threw a few handfuls of passes, but he ran 92 times fr 785 yards and seven touchdowns and caught 13 passes for 195 yards. He also made 54 tackles and intercepted a pass playing in the secondary.

"I know (UCLA) is an upcoming school and they have a great coaching staff, and my brother enjoys himself there," Fuller said. "I've been on the campus once and I saw my brother do summer practices there. (The campus) looks very modern, and I like the sunshine and all that."

Virginia offered Fuller in January, and he is looking to visit campus this spring so he can learn more about the school.

"I know a close family friend went there. Darrell Green's son (jared green) went there," Fuller said. "It's a really good education, I know that."

A recent trip to Boston College resulted in an offer from the Eagles, and enabled him to get a much deeper look at the program.

"They have a lot of history there, a lot of tradition," Fuller said. "They're looking for guys that are great football players, and it's a great education.

"They said there are a lot of options on each play. I can either give it to the running back, I can run it or I can throw it on each play. I want to be in an offense that (showcases) my abilities."

Finally, Notre Dame is recruiting Fuller and showing a lot of interest, and like most recruits, he has a basic understanding of the school's history.

"So many things (come to mind)," Fuller said. "I know the tradition at Notre Dame, and a kid (Andrew Trumbetti) from my sister school, Northern Valley Demarest, goes there and he said he loves it. It's a good education also."
