Manning (S.C.) High’s John Fulton, one of the nation’s best cornerback prospects, continues to favor South Carolina over his other four finalists, he said a few minutes ago.
“The Gamecocks are still my leader; they’re close to home and I’ve got a shot at early playing time there. The coaches have been great to me.”
Fulton, who is ranked No.5 in the state on The Observer’s Top 25 prospects list, said that Alabama is his second choice at the moment. His other finalists are Georgia, Florida and LSU. He’s planning visits to all five schools.
Another indication of that Gamecock lean—he’ll visit Georgia the weekend the Bulldogs play South Carolina.
Fulton once again showed off his remarkable talent Tuesday night in a scrimmage against Summerville, catching two TD passes at wide receiver and forcing a fumble on defense.
If South Carolina eventually lands Fulton ahead of all those SEC powers come February signing day, it will make a strong recruiting class even better—and might signal that the Gamecocks are finally ready to step up with the league’s elite.
