It wasn't all fun and games at The Opening this week in Oregon, at least not for Monroe (S.C.) receiver Jody Fuller, who made a serious decision and committed to South Carolina on national TV Friday night.
“I just like the relationship that I had with my coaches,” Fuller told TheBigSpur.com afterwards. “(Jay Graham), Steve Spurrier Jr. and the program period and where they are going. It was great that they were on me since I was a sophomore in high school and wanted me to be a part of their program for so long.”
The 6-foot, 205-pounder is part of a recent run of receivers to commit to the Gamecocks over the past few weeks. Fuller held offers from Arkansas, Miami, Michigan, West Virginia and others but the fit in South Carolina's offense was just too good to pass up.
“It’s a good offense for me and what I do,” he said. “In that slot position, I think I can really do something.”
Fuller is the fourth commitment this week for the program and 12th overall. The talented slot receiver caught 77 passes for 845 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior.
