Clay-Chalkville’s Brandon Fuller commits to UAB
By Alex Headley
Clay-Chalkville senior Brandon Fuller has committed to play for UAB. The 220 pound linebacker plans to study medicine and has had his eye on UAB for a while.
“He missed the first camp, but after talking to [head coach]McGee today he pulled the trigger and committed.” Coach Jerry Hood said.
Fuller has been a starter for the Cougars since his sophomore year. “He is a great communicator on the field.” Hood said. “Communication is important to our defense and he does not disappoint.”
Fuller says that the Blazers will probably want to bring Fuller up to 250 pounds to compete.
“Brandon is a smart kid.” Hood said. “He will do well at a place like UAB. We are very proud of him.”
Fuller has just finished participating in several camps around the state in preparation for the upcoming season.
“He had a really good week at the Spain Park camp.” Hood said.
“It was a busy week, but a good week. We are excited.”
The Blazers’ new head coach Garrick McGee has placed a high importance on recruiting from local high schools in his attempt to renew the Blazers image and performance in the conference.
Hood says he hopes McGee will continue to recruit from Clay-Chalkville.
“I like what McGee is doing with his staff. I think they are recruiting well in the area.” Hood said.
