Exactly two months to the day after issuing his initial verbal declaration to Penn State, a top Philadelphia Catholic League recruit has reconsidered and made a new decision..

Will Fuller, a 6’1, 170-pound wide receiver from Roman Catholic High School, issued a verbal declaration to Notre Dame Sunday, according to national recruiting service  Fuller’s initial declaration to the Nittany Lions was issued June 5, and he was at that time another key piece in the Nittany Lions’ 2013 recruiting class under Bill O’Brien.

Now, 60 days later, Fuller becomes Notre Dame’s third four-star prospect secured from Pennsylvania in this 2013 class, joining Wyomissing linebacker Alex Anzalone and William Penn Charter offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey.

Including Notre Dame and formerly Penn State, Fuller gained 12 total offers during his recruiting process, including Boston College, Bowling Green, Delaware, Kent State, Massachusetts, Old Dominion, Rutgers, Temple, Toledo, Towson and Villanova.  Programs like Alabama, Maryland, Michigan State, N.C. State, Pitt, Purdue, Virginia and Wisconsin showed interest, but did not offer the Cahillites’ No. 1 receiver. ranked Fuller as the No. 40 receiver prospect in the nation for the 2013 recruiting class and assigned him a four-star rating.  Fuller is Pennsylvania’s No. 2 receiver prospect in the 2013 class, trailing only Central Valley’s Robert Foster, who is the No. 1 rated receiver prospect in the 2013 class.  National recruiting service, meanwhile, ranked Fuller No. 55 at his position and rated him as a three-star prospect.

Fuller enjoyed a successful junior season in a Roman Catholic aerial assault which averaged 156.8 yards per game, snagging a team-leading 46 passes for 758 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging 16.5 yards per reception.  He went over the 100-yard receiving mark in one game, but it was a 10-catch, 276-yard, two-touchdown performance against Chestnut Hill Academy.  For his career at Roman Catholic, Fuller has hauled in 78 passes for 1,450 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Roman Catholic finished 8-4 overall in 2011, reaching the PCL AAAA championship game against La Salle College High School before falling, 16-6.  The Cahillites lost both of their meetings last season with the three-time PIAA AAAA semifinalist Explorers by a combined 12 points.

    Well, that about completes the NCAA’s planned destruction of PSU. Amazing that the NCAA and PSU tied themselves up in a neat package with Sandusky, Spanier, Curley, Schultz and Paterno…with a pretty bow on top too. I can’t help but think that much more is yet to come with this story. I certainly have questions. Why did the govt really bag the 98 investigation? Why did it take AG (now Gov) Corbett so long? Do they really expect us all to believe the PSU Board of Trustees knew nothing?
