Junior ATH Fuller has visited Rutgers, UConn

He won't be making a decision any time soon but Class of 2012 athlete Devin Fuller is already starting to feel his way through the recruiting process.

The 6-foot, 180-pound athlete from Old Tappan, New Jersey has been told by some coaches that he will have the opportunity to play football in the FBS ranks.

That had to excite Fuller, who has been carrying a big load for his high school team for a while now.

Many junior prospects that are on the recruiting radar are only now going to start making a major contribution to their high school teams, but Fuller knows the load he will have to carry.

"This year I'm changing positions [on defense] to safety," he said. "I played corner last year. I also play quarterback.

"I would prefer to play quarterback [in college] but if I need to then I'll play wherever I can to get on the field.

Last fall Fuller completed 66-of-99 passes for 900 yards. He carried the ball 44 times for 450 yards.

A couple of schools got a taste for what he could do over the summer.

"I went to UConn and Rutgers this summer," he recalled. "I feel like I did good at both but I probably did better at the Rutgers [camp]. I did decent at both, though."

Rutgers worked Fuller out at cornerback, while UConn gave him looks at corner, wide receiver and quarterback.

Fuller has also been receiving letters from UCLA, Georgia Tech, Oregon, Boston College and Marshall. He said he has already spoken to coaches from Georgia Tech, UCLA, UConn and Rutgers.

"They've seen my film online because I haven't sent it out yet," he continued. "They just said I'm probably going to be a Division I recruit.

"I don't have any favorites at this point. Any school that has interest in me, I'm interested in."
