Florida State commit listening to the Florida Gators staff

Last week, the Florida Gators coaching staff was all over the state of Florida recruiting and watching spring practices during the evaluation period.

Defensive line coach Sal Sunseri was in the state and visited Florida State defensive end commit Quashon Fuller (6-3, 277, Lehigh Acres, FL. Lehigh Senior) at his school.

“The defensive line coach, Coach Sunseri came by,” Fuller said on the coach who visited him last week. “It was pretty good, he just got to see me move around a little bit in practice and all of that. He got to see what I do best.”

Despite his commitment to Florida State, the Gators haven’t stopped recruiting Fuller as two coaches have been talking to him.

“They’ve been keeping in contact, they’ve been texting me every week, you know I like that,” he said on his talks with Florida. “I talk to Coach Sunseri and Coach [Dan] Mullen the most.”

When Sunseri and Fuller talk it’s about a lot of things including how the Gators would use the defensive end if he chooses Florida for college.

“He just talks about how I would fit into his scheme and stuff like that,” Fuller said on the message from Sunseri. “He talks to me about how it’s to work with him and how it’s on campus. He tells me that he sees me playing outside linebacker and defensive end.”

Fuller hears from head coach Dan Mullen as well as the Florida State commit is happy to hear from someone in Mullen’s position.

“They kind of say the same thing really,” he said on his talks with Mullen. “I just appreciate Coach Mullen even texting me because the last staff wouldn’t text me at all or call me or nothing. It’s amazing to hear from the head coach himself.”

The Florida State commit hasn’t shied away from his interest in Florida and Fuller expects them to make his next cut.

“I’m just going to say that Florida is going to be in my top 10,” Fuller said when asked where Florida stands with him.

Fuller also shared where he is with his commitment to Florida State after he committed to the previous Seminoles staff.

“I’m going to keep my options open,” he said on his commitment to Florida. “Because of the new staff there [Florida State] and stuff like that. I just want to see how stuff works out.”

INSIDERS TAKE: Fuller said he wants to make a final decision on signing day and he plans to visit Florida this summer.
