Penn State visit next for Fuller

Old Tappan (N.J.) Northern Regional athlete Devin Fuller was among the most-watched players at the Badger Sport 7-on-7 event this weekend at Rutgers, but he didn't get to show the wide array of offensive talents that have made him a top-level recruit.

Fuller now has 13 scholarship offers.

A standout as a high school quarterback, Fuller played almost exclusively on the defensive side of the ball over the weekend. He lined up at safety and played a little bit of wide receiver for his squad, which bowed out in the final eight to a team from Virginia.

Fuller is still looking to play quarterback at the next level, but he said that playing another position in college would not be a dealbreaker.

"If a school gives me a chance, then that's great, but I'm not 'X'ing anyone out if they don't [want me to] play quarterback," he said, adding that he would be a good fit at cornerback or safety as well.

The 6-foot, 185-pound prospect recently went over a dozen scholarship offers.

"The last few have been Michigan, Indiana and UConn," he said. "[I'm not deciding] anytime soon. Probably in the summer, maybe before my season. I want to start recruiting for myself to get some other people to go to the school that I want to go to."

The junior is starting to get out on the visit trail, and most recently took a trip to Atlanta to check out Georgia Tech.

"I went to Rutgers for a junior day back in January, I went to Boston College in January and I went to Georgia Tech," he said. "Georgia Tech was very nice… all of them were very nice but the last one I went to was Georgia Tech, so that's fresh in my mind. They have very nice facilities."

Next up for Fuller will be a visit to Penn State in March. The Nittany Lions offered Fuller last month, and have been in regular contact through assistant coach Dick Anderson since. Penn State is one of the teams that have told Fuller that he would get a chance on offense.

"They're giving me a shot to play quarterback, but I have a feel from them that it's really not going to be for quarterback," he said. "But they said that they would give me a shot, so I'm going to believe in what they say until they say otherwise."

Fuller visited Happy Valley for a game last fall.

"It's very good, Coach Paterno has a great winning tradition and it seems like a great place to be," he said.
