Jacksonville, FL has been good to Clemson over the years and the Tigers hope that will continue as they recruit 2013 receiver Ahmad Fulwood. Fulwood got to learn more about the Tigers when he attended the Dabo Swinney camp in early June.
“It was fun. I went down there and wanted to get a good look at the school. I want to get the visits out of the way now because next year will be busy. The camp was a lot of fun. We got to go up against some top talent,” said Fulwood.
Clemson’s receiver coach and recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott built a strong relationship with the 6-4, 200 pound prospect during the camp visit.
“I really got to know coach Scott. I talked to coach Scott a lot. He was always pushing me to do things right,” said Fulwood.
The summer visit tour continued after the visit to Clemson.
“I went to Duke three days later. Then I went to Wake Forest. After Wake I went to Florida and then Miami,” said Fulwood.
Did one visit stand out over the others?
“I look at all of them the same. I got a feel for the coaches and a feel for the schools,” replied Fulwood.
What are the strengths of the rising junior?
“I really pride myself on how fast I get off the line. I go up and get the ball at the highest point. When the ball is in the air, I go and get it. I can be a great blocker also in a pro style offense,” said Fulwood.
When asked if he has any early favorites, Fulwood responded, “Right now I don’t have any.”
Ahmad isn’t sure when he will make a decision on his college destination.
“I don’t know yet. I really need to talk with my mom some. It will probably be after my junior season and sometime before December of my senior year,” said Fulwood.
What will be important when Ahmad make his selection?
“I want to go where I have a good feel for the coaches. I want a place like home. I want a place where I can stay out of trouble, a smaller town. I want to go to a place where I can get a good degree,” replied Fulwood
