Fullwood Eyes Opportunity

Olney (Md.) three-star defensive end Darius Fullwood picked up an offer from West Virginia recently. What does the Good Counsel standout think about the offer?

Class of 2015 defensive end Darius Fullwood has witnessed an increase in his recruitment over the last several weeks. His latest offer comes from West Virginia.

"I recently spoke with Coach (Lonnie) Galloway before school and he was telling me he finally had a chance to look at my film," Fullwood said. "So they officially offered me."

Upon examining his film, Galloway, and other members of the West Virginia staff, believed Fullwood fit the criteria for which they were looking.

"He said he enjoyed my pass-rushing ability," Fullwood said. "They were saying how the defensive ends there now were graduating next year, and I'd have a good opportunity to perform and compete from the get-go."

Having grown up in close proximity to the West Virginia campus, the Mountaineers are a program the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Maryland native has become familiar with.

"West Virginia is a school that I've watched on television a lot," Fullwood said. "I'm extremely familiar with all the success they've had. I've never gotten to visit the campus, though."

Fullwood, who claims over 20 offers, would like to begin the process of narrowing his list of schools down. However, it's becoming increasingly difficult with each offer placed on the table.

"It definitely makes it harder," Fullwood said, describing the difficulty of narrowing down an extensive list. "I had a top five a month ago and I had to scratch it out because of all the new schools who offered."

"But I'd like to begin to narrow it down soon," he continued. "I want to try and commit sometime in May. That's a good time to get it finished and out of the way."

Fullwood is planning to visit West Virginia during the spring, hoping to get a first-hand look at a Mountaineer practice.
