Five-star WR likely headed out of state

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Five-star wide receiver prospect Ahmad Fulwood (Jacksonville, Fla./Bishop Kenny) will be one of the most highly recruited prospects in the state of Florida for the 2013 class, but he is likely headed out of state to play college football.

Fulwood lists Clemson, Alabama, USC, Arkansas, Georgia, Ohio State and Notre Dame as schools that he is most interested. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound receiver said that out of those schools, he likely will visit Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State and possibly USC this spring.

Noticeably missing are in-state schools Florida, Florida State and Miami. Fulwood said he is likely to leave the state to attend college. Fulwood, who is from New Jersey, said there is no particular reason he wants to leave the state.

"I would just like to get away from Florida," he said. "There really isn't a specific reason."

Fulwood, though, said he is in no rush to make a decision about his future.

"I'm not going to commit early or anything like that," he said. "I want to take all five of my official visits, and I'll probably make my decision no later than the Army game."

As a junior, Fulwood totaled 44 receptions and 21 touchdowns.
