Coach Bryan Harsin spent two years as the offensive coordinator at the University of Texas.
It appears that Harsin has gone back to the Lone Star State to pick up a commitment from defensive back Jeremy Fulcher from Dallas Woodrow Wilson High School.
Harsin said when he was hired that he and his staff would make recruiting Texas a priority, it appears that he mean’t it.
Fulcher was previously committed to Georgia State and spoke to AStateNation.com Sunday afternoon about his recent visit and decision he made to be a Red Wolf on his official visit to Jonesboro this weekend.
“I loved it there,” Fulcher said. “The campus was great, I love the coaching staff, they were one of the major reasons I chose to be a Red Wolf.”
According to Fulcher, Harsin and the ASU coaching staff is recruiting him to play Free Safety for the Red Wolves.
“They are telling me they want me to play free safety,” Fulcher said. “I can’t wait to play for defensive coordinator John Thompson, he is always fired up, he gets you going. He is a great coach.”
Three other Red Wolf coaches have also made an impression on the future Red Wolf.
“I really like Coach (Blake) Baker and Coach (Brad) Bedell,” Fulcher said. “Coach Baker is recruiting me now, Coach Bedell recruited me at New Mexico State. Coach Harsin is going to do great things at Arkansas State.”
The fact that Arkansas State has won back to back Sun Belt Conference Championships and 10 win seasons two years in a row, was too much for Fulcher to pass up on.
“I now have the chance to play for the best team in the conference,” Fulcher said. “Arkansas State is a lot closer to my home than Georgia State also. ASU is a program that already is a winner.”
Fulcher, a 6-foot-0, 177-pound athlete, currently has offers at Arkansas State, UNLV, New Mexico State and Georgia State.
Fulcher got a chance to spend some time with the current Red Wolf players.
“The team unity is incredible,” Fulcher said. “Everyone seems like a big happy family. It’s a program I want to be a part of.
According to Fulcher he has seen enough of the recruiting process.
“I’m done,” Fulcher said. “I’m not taking any other visits. I found the best place for me. I have found my new home.”
