Devin Fuller, the highly touted Old Tappan High School athlete and quarterback prospect, committed to UCLA today (via Inside SoCal.com).
Fuller did have the Rutgers Scarlet Knights among his finalists, but the departure of head coach Greg Schiano to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers probably played a role in Fuller not staying in state.
Fuller had 2,247 yards passing with 20 touchdowns and 120 rushes for 1,326 yards and 17 touchdowns (including a 15-rush, 360-yard, four-touchdown day) as a senior, a year after completing 95-of-143 passes for 1,886 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions while rushing 191 times for 2,306 yards and 32 touchdowns. As a junior, Fuller was named New Jersey Old Spice Player of the Year.
The four-star dual-threat quarterback was ranked as the No. 3 quarterback prospect by Scout.com. Fuller chose UCLA over Arizona, Nebraska, Rutgers and TCU.
