FULLWOOD NAMES TOP 5
Good Counsel (Olney, MD) defensive end Darius Fullwood is one of the most coveted defensive end recruits in the nation in the class of 2015. The 6’4″, 235-pound rising senior, a player with scholarship offers from all across the country, revealed his top five via Twitter last night.
Virginia Tech made Fullwood’s list, which is not a list of finalists but a list of current favorites. Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Miami and Ohio State are on there as well. Boston College, Penn State, Wake Forest and West Virginia are the schools also in “high consideration” according to the Falcons star rising senior.
