Manning DB John Fulton (6-0 180) has formulated a top five list, and he has Alabama leading the way right now. "It's just coach Saban and the way they treated me on my visit," Fulton said. "It was crazy. We stayed at a hotel and the people started talking to us about Alabama, old people, and they didn't even know we were recruits."
Fulton said the Crimson Tide doesn't have a big lead on the rest of the pack which he lists in order as Florida, Georgia, USC and Tennessee. Coaches from USC, Florida and Alabama were by his school last week and he has talked with his recruiters from those schools on the phone. He spoke with USC recruiter Shane Beamer Saturday. "He said they have a need for corners and I have a chance to play early," Fulton said.
Fulton participated in the recent Elite 100 and Scout.com combines in Charlotte and was named the defensive back MVP at both. Fulton said he ran a laser timed 4.39 in the 40.
Fulton has offers from USC, Clemson, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, NC State and Tennessee.
