Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny four-star wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood made his way to the University of Alabama for a weekend visit. The Rivals100 prospect enjoyed the Junior Day event with the reigning National Champions.
"It was awesome," Fulwood said. "Getting to visit and see everything was awesome. Tuscaloosa is a crazy town. It is very small, which is cool. You could tell though that once gameday comes it is a special place to be, the people are very serious about their football there. I had a blast."
Fulwood was accompanied on the visit by Jacksonville (Fla.) Sandalwood four-star junior defensive end Demarcus Walker as well as sophomore quarterback John Wolford, who plays alongside Fulwood at Bishop Kenny.
For the 6-foot-4, 197-pound wide receiver, the best part of the visit was seeing all of the facilities available for use by the football players.
"I would just have to say their facilities," Fulwood said when asked of the highlight of the visit. "We went to Bryant-Denny Stadium and it was amazing. I mean there weren't 102,000 fans in there but it was still electrifying. We also got to hang around the football facilities. It was just a pretty cool place to be at."
During the visit, Fulwood met Nick Saban as well as numerous members of his staff. He spent a great deal of time with his primary area recruiter.
"I spent a lot of time with Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt," Fulwood said. "He pretty much told me that Alabama speaks for itself. It really does. You get there and the facilities are great. The people around there are awesome too. He said that being in Alabama makes you want to be the best you can be. I was excited about hearing that. We talked a lot and we made small chit-chat sometimes."
The Crimson Tide coaching staff spoke to the U.S. Army All-American about how he would fit into their offense if he were to opt to play his college football at the SEC program.
"They told me that they still need a big receiver," Fulwood said. "I know they have Duron Carter and that Eddie Williams can also help with that edge spot, but that they still want another guy for there. They are hoping I can come in and fill that spot."
Fulwood was able to meet a few of the wide receivers currently on the roster at Alabama.
"I met a few of the current players," Fulwood said. "I talked with Chris Black, Amari Cooper, and Eddie Williams. It was mainly receivers that I talked to. They said that Alabama has everything you need. It is crazy place. They said that with hard work everything pays off there. They said that you will work very hard but that you will enjoy it in the end."
At this stage of the process, Fulwood doesn't claim a leader. He has five favorites - Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Georgia, and Ohio State. Alabama did nothing to hurt their standing amongst that group with the weekend visit.
"Alabama is definitely a school that impresses me," Fulwood said.
Fulwood said he will likely take a visit to Florida during the first weekend in March. He has previously taken a Junior Day visit to Clemson.
As a junior, Fulwood had 43 receptions for 1,100 yards and 22 touchdowns.
