Wylie (Texas) is only a couple of years removed from a state championship game appearance and the Pirates are doing their best to get back. They fell one game short this past season but, with a loaded junior class, they could have a good shot again next year.
One of the key members of the team this past season was Kyle Fuller as the 6-foot-5, 260-pound junior anchored the offensive line. He is now starting to receive plenty of college interest, especially from a particular Big 12 program.
"Currently I'm hearing the most from Texas Tech," Fuller said. "I talk to them every once in a while. They send me handwritten letters probably every two to three days."
Wylie assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Terry Mills reports that Fuller has been offered by Texas Tech, Kansas and Iowa State but the big lineman is a bit in the dark on that matter.
"My coaches are the ones who know about the offers," he said. "I haven't received any word on any of that just yet. I'm just letting them deal with everything right now."
Fuller has yet to visit any college campuses but that will change soon.
"I plan on going to a junior day at Texas Tech on Feb. 20," he said. "It's either the 20th or the 26th. That's the only trip I have planned now. I just want to go out there and see the campus and everything."
Right now, he admits the Red Raiders are at the top of his list.
"They're standing out to me early," Fuller said. "They're recruiting me harder than anybody else and I really like them. They're at the top of the schools I've looked at.
"(Texas) A&M, I looked there. I haven't really talked to them though. I've also looked at Wake Forest and OU a little bit."
Fuller was a first-team all-district selection for the Pirates this past season.
