Fulwood having great junior season
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Junior wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood is in the midst of an incredible junior season at Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny. On Thursday evening, he helped his team to improve to 8-0 on the season by hauling in four receptions for 130 yards and three touchdowns, as well as intercepting a pass from the safety spot, as the Crusaders destroyed Jacksonville (Fla.) Terry Parker 44-8.
"It was a big win for us," Fulwood said. "We needed it to get into the playoffs. We got out ahead of them early even though we started slow, but we played hard and it shined through in the end."
Through eight games, Fulwood has hauled in 20 touchdown passes from sophomore quarterback John Wolford. The connection between Fulwood and his quarterback hasn't happened overnight though.
"We have been playing together since we were eight years old so the chemistry is beyond ridiculous," Fulwood said. "I know what he wants and he knows where to put the ball and I am going to be at. It is just chemistry we've built up over the years."
Fulwood's success on the football field has already led to offers from Arkansas, Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida, Miami, N.C. State, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wake Forest, and West Virginia. On Friday, that list grew by one when the Georgia Bulldogs extended a verbal offer.
"Coach (Tony) Ball came by the told my coach that they liked my film," Fulwood said. "Coach (Mark) Richt liked it."
On the season, Fulwood has attended a pair of games at 'The Swamp', when he saw Florida host Florida Atlantic and Alabama.
"Florida has a ridiculous atmosphere," Fulwood said. "It is crazy down there. 90,000 fans screaming at the top of their lungs no matter what is going on."
He has also made his way to Florida State to watch the Seminoles in action. He attended their game against then top-ranked Oklahoma.
"When I went to Florida State, it was pretty much the same thing," Fulwood said. "A big game. They were crazy. It was ridiculous."
The 6-foot-4, 195-pound wideout enjoyed his time at both schools.
"I loved both of those places," Fulwood said.
Before the college football season wraps up, he is hoping to take a couple more trips.
"I am not visiting anywhere this weekend," Fulwood said. "I am planning to visit Clemson on November 12th though. I think I may also go to Florida for their game against Florida State at the end of the season."
While he is taking a lot of college visits at this time, Fulwood said he isn't focusing much on his recruitment.
"I am just focusing on football right now and school," Fulwood said. "Recruiting, I will worry about that after the season."
At this time, Fulwood claims no leader.
