One of the Philadelphia Catholic League’s top returning wide receivers will be continuing his career in-state.

Will Fuller, a 6’1, 170-pound wide receiver from Roman Catholic High School, issued a verbal declaration to Penn State Tuesday evening, according to national recruiting service Scout.com, just days after he picked up an offer from the Nittany Lions after attending a weekend camp.

Including 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.

Scout.com 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 Rivals.com, 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.

    Very impressive! Absolutely deserving of this opportunity, as he is extremely talented and works very hard during the off-season. This young man has a very bright future if he stays healthy.
