IE Quick Take: Will Fuller

IE Quick Take: Will Fuller

Philadelphia (PA) product Will Fuller has added his name to Brian Kelly's class of 2013 after flipping from Penn State. IrishEyes.com's Dave Berk offers his first take on the future Notre Dame wide receiver.

Notre Dame added its third wide receiver to the 2013 recruiting class in FOXSportsNEXT.com four-star Will Fuller of Roman Catholic High School (Philadelphia, PA).

Here is a quick look at the 6-foot-1, 170-pound receiver, ranked #39 overall.

WHAT TO LIKE

The first thing that jumps out at you when watching Fuller is how fluid he is in his movements. Fuller shows the ability and willingness to go over the middle to make a catch, while also being able to defeat a defender off the line.

While he'll have to prove he can be a deep threat at the college level, Fuller fits what the Irish look for at the wide receiver position in his route running and ball skills.

WHAT MAY CONCERN YOU

Any time a player flips from one school to another you will always keep in the back of your mind another possible change. However, the reason for this change is well documented and not a surprise.

On the field Fuller will have to add bulk to his frame while not losing speed. The other area of concern is his adjustment to the level of play he'll see in college.

BOTTOM LINE

Fuller shows solid tools as a receiver and is athletic enough to even get a look on defense if he's unable to break into the Irish receiver's rotation.

With long arms and the ability to go up and catch the ball at its highest point, Fuller shows solid pass catching skills. He's got all the tools to be a solid possession guy because of these skills and those type of receivers always do well in a Brian Kelly offensive attack.

Like most high school receivers Fuller is not asked to be a blocker so work will be needed here. Nevertheless, Fuller is a great addition to the class and brings a solid skill set.
