Former Orange QB mentoring prospect

Last season Syracuse brought Terrell Hunt and Ashton Broyld in to play Quarterback and this season they are looking to still add solid depth to the position. One player they are looking at is Army All-American Devin Fuller from Old Tappan (NJ) Old Tappan.

Syracuse offered the 6-foot-0, 180 pound prospect recently, but he has known about the Orange for awhile because of a close relationship he has with a former Orange quarterback.

"Syracuse offered me about the beginning of March. Every offer is big, with Syracuse though my trainer went there and he tells me how good it is up there. My trainer is Madei Williams and he was a good player when he was there. He told me a lot about it."

When Syracuse is not talking with Fuller his trainer takes over and tells the athlete about the Orange.

"He tells me about how they were more of a running team when he was there with Coach [Paul]Pasqualoni and Coach [George]DeLeone were there and other great things about the program. That is what I like to hear."

At this time the Garden State product has not yet made a visit to Syracuse, be he does want to very soon.

"I am planning to go up this summer, but I don't know when yet."

With over twenty offers where exactly does Syracuse stand at this time?

"Right now they are still in the mix with every other school. I have not spoke with a lot of coaches from there recently. They are still in my mind everyday though."

If Fuller ends up picking Syracuse he would play quarterback and he feels he brings some important qualities to the position.

"Syracuse wants me at quarterback," Fuller stated. "I make quick decisions on the field, I bring leadership, and a winning mentality because nobody likes to lose."

As for that decision it is not expected to come anytime soon.

"I am probably going to commit in February of next year."
