Manning DB John Fulton will announce his college decision January 2nd during the Under Armour All American Game, and he said after Shrine Bowl practice Monday afternoon he has a pretty good idea about where he's going. "You can kind of say that, but you never know," Fulton said.
USC, Alabama and Florida are the final three. The Gators appeared out of it until their recent in home visit. "They talked about the depth chart and everything like that and Joe Hayden leaving. It started to make a lot of sense. A lot of things clicked there."
Fulton says Alabama coach Nick Saban also had an impressive in home visit with him and his mother. "My mom loves him, you know," he said. "It was kind of an honor for them to come right after their big win (in the SEC title game)."
USC also has been in the home and Fulton has strong feelings for the Gamecocks. "I love all South Carolina coaches," he said. "I've been close to them since as far as I can remember. I've always loved South Carolina since I was a little boy, and my dad has always loved South Carolina."

Fulton's father is due home from Afghanistan December 28th, and he plans to sit down with him and discuss his options. And Fulton says there's one thing he wants to make clear in his mind. "Just that in the next couple of weeks, the decision I've made in my mind feels right." And he added one does feel right at this time, and he will keep that information to himself. "Oh yea, I can do that," he said. "Nobody don't know nothing."
