Charlotte Christian's Fulginiti commits to Elon

Charlotte Christian offensive tackle Sam Fulginiti has committed to Elon, Knights coach Jason Estep said a few minutes ago.

Fulginiti, who is 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds, was also being recruited by other Southern Conference schools and also Big South programs, but Elon made the first offer.

“His brother Zach attended Elon as a student, and Sam was very comfortable with the school,” Estep said. “They’re getting a good one; he’s a three-year starter for us with a great work ethic.”

Despite the commitment, Estep thinks Fulginiti will receive more offers.

“When one school gets it started, a lot of times that gets others jumping in.”

Fulginiti played left tackle a year ago but will shift to the right side this season. In college, though, he projects as a guard or even a center.

“He’s that athletic,” Estep said. “He’s very versatile and can play anywhere on the line.”

I hope not this is a huge commitment for us. Maybe he realizes that he wants to play for the future of the SoCon, not the past...
