The Opening: Jordan Fuller Evaluation

Jul. 17 -- Scout examines the play of the No. 1 cornerback in New Jersey, Jordan Fuller, at The Opening...

Most schools are recruiting Jordan Fuller as a cornerback, but TCU joined the fray recently in hopes of luring the top defensive back in New Jersey to campus as a safety.

While Fuller's size could dictate where he plays in college, he showed his skills at The Opening as a cornerback and performed well.

Fuller, who weighed in at 197 pounds, was physical and used his length well near the line of scrimmage, and showed the footwork and hip flexibility to turn and run with receivers down the field.

Fuller is the No. 2 cornerback in the East. He was not tested often as opposing quarterbacks often looked over the middle and Fuller spent his time covering on the outside. He was low in his backpedal and he drove on the ball well on passes thrown in front of him.

On the recruiting side, Fuller was recently offered by TCU, where his father, Bart, played safety. His brother, Devin Fuller, plays at UCLA and a trip to Notre Dame for later this month is being scheduled. Stanford, Ohio State, Michigan, Rutgers and Penn State are also pushing hard for Fuller, who wants to make official visits before deciding on a school.
