Profile - Keyston Fuller
Griffin High School (GA) receiver Keyston Fuller and his teammates have not lost a game this season as they work towards the state championships. Fuller has been a big part of their success and the junior receiver is receiving interest from two ACC programs.
Fuller’s performance this season has gained him interest schools around the South. “I’m getting a lot of stuff from a couple of schools and more and more schools are starting to send me mail."
Georgia Tech and North Carolina are the two schools showing Fuller the most interest. Fuller has been in touch with Georgia Tech Coach “Buzz” Preston. "He tells me that they want me to come over as much as I can as they like to see me there and get a chance to talk to me in person.”
Fuller’s speed and play at the receiver position has gotten Coach Preston’s attention. “The goal of their team is to get the ball in the play makers hands whether it is the quarterback, running back or receivers. They have no set criteria as to how much they should or shouldn't pass. Winning is their goal and how they win depends on who the play makers are."
An offer from Tech has not come yet but one could be on the way. “They tell me it is just a matter of time before I get one from them."
Fuller has also talked to Tech baseball Coach Danny Hall. "I play both sports at Griffin and I will play both in college. Coach Hall says he really likes me.” Coach Hall has seen Keyston while he was playing on the same team as his son. “He feels I would be a good addition to the baseball program."
Keyston has watched Tech play North Carolina and Syracuse and would like to return for another game. “It’s only about 45 minutes from home."
Coach Chris Kapilovic from North Carolina has also been talking to Fuller. “He’s been telling me that they really see me as speed receiver and are recruiting me that way. North Carolina has offered Fuller and invited him to one of their home games.
Other schools that Keyston has looking at him are Alabama, Vanderbilt, Florida, Florida State, and Georgia.
When it comes time to choose a school Keyston will be looking at the school’s majors, class sizes, and the strength of the football program. “Diversity of the student population is very important.” Fuller is also looking to stay close to home.
Don’t look for Keyston to make an early decision. "I will be one that waits closer to signing day. I want to have all my offers, information on the schools, and input from my family before making my decision."
Keyston is a two sport athlete but he also excels in the classroom. He carries a 3.8 GPA while playing both sports, one which requires a lot of travel. Keyston is part of the S.T.E.M. programs in high school and is on a pathway to major in engineering in college.
