Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel will bring at least five days a week. The play sheet for Thursday calls for an update with a prospect who is on campus at this hour. That’s Florida State pledge Quashon Fuller. He’s got a lot of interesting things to say about the Georgia staff and 5-star freshman quarterback Justin Fields.
First and foremost, let’s not get anything twisted here.
“Georgia is a special place,” Fuller said. “I’m a big fan of Justin Fields. Every time I go up there and get to hang with him, I just feel like one of the Bulldogs. I was up there for G-Day and it just felt like those were my brothers. I wasn’t even on the team yet and I really haven’t actually felt like that with another team yet. So that was just really crazy to me.”
So how does Quashon Fuller really feel about UGA?
Fuller said the bond he has with UGA and the players on the team is very strong.

“I would say that bond is the same as it is with Florida State,” Fuller said. “At first, those guys at Florida State were like my brothers but we kind of fell off. Right now, we are building that relationship back.”
The best way to describe things is that Fuller feels as close to certain guys at UGA as he does to any current player within the program he’s currently committed to.
“Yes, that’s it,” Fuller said. “That’s accurate.”
Should he be a flip candidate? Fans like to see those lists from time to time of the top players UGA is trending with that are currently committed elsewhere. Do the Bulldogs qualify as a school that holds at least some semblance of a flip chance with Fuller?
“They are going a good job recruiting me,” Fuller said.
Will the Bulldogs get an official visit from Fuller? He said yes. The 4-star defensive end is not sure of the date yet, but he said UGA has earned that right.
“I felt like those guys were my brothers and I could actually see myself being there for the next four to five years of my life. I actually really like how [defensive line coach Tray Scott] and those guys are building up the Georgia program there. They are out there at practice every day chasing a national championship. You can see that every day. That’s something I want to be a part of in college.”
What does he think of Tray Scott?

“Coach Scott is a really cool guy,” Fuller said. “You don’t find too many people like coach Scott. I actually really appreciate that. He’s still recruiting me hard knowing that I am committed and stuff like that. That takes a lot of guts to do that. He’s going out of his way to recruit somebody like me who is basically decided and I just really appreciate that.
“He’s a good guy. You don’t find too many recruiters like him.”
As of now, he said, Alabama, Florida State and Georgia are his only certain official visits.
How would UGA line up Fuller in its schemes?
“They want me to be a guy that’s big enough to play defensive tackle but is still fast enough to play defensive end and outside linebacker,” Fuller said. “I want to move across the line and be able to stand up and get to the quarterback.”
He’s thinking about fields of study that include business, finance and also a potential path to physical therapy.
He’s committed to Florida State, but still released a top 10?
