The Virginia Cavaliers added some help along both sides of the line of scrimmage with one commitment.
"Jason committed to Virginia around two weeks ago," said Virginia Beach (Va.) Kempsville head coach Jeff McGowan of defensive end/tight end Jason Fuller. "He went to their junior day and they got back to him with an offer just about a week later. That Tuesday he called the coaches, told them he received the offer and committed. He got an offer from Syracuse the same day, but he fell in love with Virginia when he was there."
Fuller, a 6-foot-6, 225-pounder, can play on either side of the ball in college.
"They're looking at him as either a tight end or an outside linebacker," said McGowan. "Last season he had 64 tackles with 17 for a loss and 10 sacks on defense and he blocked on offense. We ran behind him nearly every play on offense, he's a great blocker. He had about eight pancakes a game."
Fuller carries a 3.5 GPA and bench presses 350 pounds. He runs the 40-yard dash in an estimated 4.7 seconds, but will get tested at the NIKE Camp in Charlottesville on April 18.
"He's still going to that camp," McGowan said. "He's firmly committed to UVA and any chance he can get to visit again he'll take."
Fuller wants to major in business. He is the Cavaliers fourth verbal commitment joining quarterback Vic Hall, tight end Alex Field and wideout Maurice Covington.
