Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny junior wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood made his way to Clemson's Junior Day this past weekend. For Fulwood, the opportunity to visit the ACC school is always a welcomed one.
"It is always good to get up there and to see Clemson," Fulwood said. "They will be one of my top schools. I have built a great relationship with Coach (Jeff) Scott. I definitely wanted to check it out this time."
Fulwood had an opportunity to speak with Dabo Swinney and his staff about how he would fit into Clemson's offensive scheme.

"They said I could potentially play the spot that DeAndre Hopkins is playing now," Fulwood said. "They said that right now between his freshman and sophomore seasons, he has the most balls caught out for a freshman and sophomore season - he holds that record right now. That really stands out to me. They are getting the ball around. They obviously are using Sammy (Watkins) and the other guys a lot, but they are also getting it to the big receiver on the other side."
During his time on campus, the 6-foot-4, 197-pound wideout had an opportunity to spend time with some of the current Tigers.
"I got to hang out with some of the players," Fulwood said. "I spent time with Sammy Watkins and Travis Blanks. They are both cool. Me, Demarcus (Walker), and Reggie Northrup, we were the Duval kids. We hung out a lot over there."
Clemson's surroundings as well as the general feel around the town and school are very appealing to Fulwood.
"It is a college of about 15,000 or 16,000 students with a few thousand people outside of that, that live there," Fulwood said. "So it is a really small town. I really like that. There isn't much to do, but that also means there isn't much trouble to get into, which is pretty cool. You are always in a chill, small town environment which is pretty awesome. The people there are really into the school and the teammates all love each other. It is a really nice place, good environment to be in."
With the visit now concluded, Fulwood said that Clemson has positioned themselves very well to be amongst his top schools throughout the process.
"No doubt," Fulwood said.
At this point, Fulwood hasn't scheduled his next visit. He hopes to see Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Ohio State in the coming weeks and months. He currently holds offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida, Georgia, Miami, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wake Forest, and West Virginia.
As for a decision timeline, Fulwood doesn't intend to make an early announcement.
"I definitely want to take all five of my officials now," Fulwood said. "My decision will probably be either during the season after I take my five officials or later. It could be at the U.S. Army All-American Game."
Fulwood finished his junior campaign with 43 catches for 1,100 yards and 22 touchdowns.
