Fort Meade (Fla.) tight end Brandon Fulse was one of many visitors at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday evening as the Miami Hurricanes hosted the Florida State Seminoles. While Randy Shannon's club fell short on the evening, the environment surrounding the game still made a good impression on Fulse.
"The game was nice," Fulse said. "The environment was nice, it was a crazy atmosphere there. Florida State just came out to play and Miami didn't, but I enjoyed watching the game."
The four-star tight end was welcomed to the game by a pair of assistant coaches.
"I talked to a few of their coaches," Fulse said. "I talked with Coach (Rick) Petri and Coach Aubrey Hill. They were just telling me that they were happy that I came to the game. They told me to make sure I enjoyed the game. That was basically it."
The 6-foot-4, 247-pounder plans to hit the road a few more times in the coming weeks for unofficial visits.
"I will be at Auburn for the LSU game. I plan to go to Florida State for either the Clemson or North Carolina game. I will be back down to Miami for another game," Fulse said. "Those are all unofficial visits that I have planned right now."
As for official visits, he still intends to use all five to check out some schools a bit further from home.
"I plan to take all five of my officials," Fulse said. "I know I want to take an official to Oregon, Texas Tech, and Tennessee because they are farther from home."
In addition to Auburn, Miami, Florida State, Oregon, Texas Tech, and Tennessee, Fulse also said that North Carolina, Michigan, South Florida, and Alabama remain in the picture. All of those schools are consistent in their contact with Rivals.com's No. 9 ranked tight end.
"All of those schools are about the same, calling me every week," Fulse said. "Everybody is the same. It is getting kind of harder now because time is narrowing down and all these schools are still coming after me hard."
"I don't have a leader right now," Fulse added.
In previous interviews Fulse had indicated that he may decide on Nov. 3rd, to honor a relative who passed. With the process dragging out, it appears unlikely he will have a decision at that point.
"Probably not," Fulse said. "If not on that date, I don't know when I will decide."
So far this season, Fulse has seen coaches from Auburn, South Florida, and North Carolina at his games.
