Notre Dame flips former Penn State commit Will Fuller

By Bryan Fischer | Blogger

Just over a week after saying he was committed to Penn State, Philadelphia (Pa.) wide receiver William Fuller took an unofficial visit to Notre Dame and flipped his verbal pledge to the Irish on Sunday.

"I like Notre Dame's fans and we have a lot of them around here,” Fuller told 247Sports a few days ago. “They have a great fan base.”

The 6-foot-1, 170-pounder was one of the top players at the New Level 7-on-7 National Championship in Brooklyn, New York earlier this summer and was one player that Notre Dame had come around on in their pursuit of wide receivers this class. Fuller also held BCS-caliber offers from Rutgers and Boston College but had largely sat recruiting out after committing to Penn State on June 5th after earning an offer from the Nittany Lions' staff.

Last year as a junior, he caught 46 passes for 758 yards and 10 touchdowns. He becomes the 19th commitment for the Irish's upcoming recruiting class and the third wide receiver of the group.

Fuller also becomes the third decommit from Penn State's 2013 class, which now stands at 11, since NCAA sanctions appeared imminent for the program.
