Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak running back Patrick Fuller visited Arizona State this past weekend and said the trip compared very favorably to his first visit to Washington two weeks ago.
“It was totally different than what Washington was like,” Fuller said. “Tempe is a little more like Los Angeles. The clubs and girls were incredible and even though school was out, I still had a great time. It was fun hanging out with the players and coaches on the team and I like ASU’s style of play, how they play up tempo and how they run the football.
“I was also impressed with the academic advisers there and the professors I talked with. They have good support for the players and I think I would do well on and off the field if I ended up at ASU. Washington was great too don’t get me wrong. I couldn’t tell you what trip I liked better, they were both great. Just comparing the two overall though, I would have give ASU a slight edge but I’m still looking forward to visiting Oregon State (Jan. 9) and Oregon (Jan. 16) and seeing what those schools are about.”
Fuller, 6-1, 205 pounds, has been pretty consistent all year saying the Beavers are his top choice and that still appears to be the case.
“Yeah, I like Oregon State a lot, they’re right there at the top,” Fuller said. “They’ve been on me the longest and my quarterback is going there. No one is out of it though. Oregon is a great school too. They’re kind of a new entry but they need running backs and I’m looking forward to that trip. Once I’m done with all four of my visits, I’ll step back, analyze everything and then decide where the best place for me is.”
