    The past month has been a busy time for Old Tappan junior four-star athlete Jordan Fuller. There has been no shortage of college coaches checking in with him and Rutgers is right there among that plentiful mix.

    It was a mostly quiet Monday for Ohio State in the recruiting world, but the Buckeyes coaching staff kept themselves busy as usual. With a couple of visits from recruits still expected this week, the coaches will do their best to make the visitors feel right at home in Columbus. Making the trip from New Jersey on Wednesday will be '16 quarterback/athlete Jordan Fuller, who visited UCLA on Monday.

    Fuller is 6'2, 190-pounds, and is rated as a four-star under the 247Sports Composite rankings. Ranked as the ninth-best athlete in the country, Fuller is also ranked as the sixth best prospect at any position from the state of New Jersey. Fuller holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCLA, Vanderbilt, and Virginia, among others. He's also receiving interest from Nebraska, Oregon, Stanford, and TCU.

    The 247Sports Crystal Ball experts currently have UCLA (67 percent) as the favorite to land Fuller over Rutgers (33 percent), but it's early in his recruitment and only three experts have thrown in their predictions. I suspect we'll learn more about whether Fuller is the real deal as far as recruitment is concerned once he gets on campus and talks with the coaching staff about the class.

    Buckeyes host Fuller
    New Jersey native and class of 2016 athlete Jordan Fuller finally made it to Columbus.

    "It went well. I liked the culture, the emphasis on education, and how they develop their guys as people and players," Fuller (who could end up on either side of the ball on the college level) told Land-Grant Holy Land.

    Wanting to give other programs a look and play the process out, Fuller isn't ready to name the Buckeyes as one of his leaders or even give a short list just yet.

    One of the most sought-after recruits in the country, the 6'2, 195-pound, four-star prospect holds a pretty impressive scholarship list. Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Rutgers, and UCLA -- where his older brother Devin Fuller plays -- are just a few of the 21 programs to offer him a scholarship.

    7. JORDAN FULLER // DEFENSIVE BACK // WESTWOOD, NEW JERSEY
    One position the Buckeyes would really like to add another big-timer in 2016 is safety, and right now Jordan Fuller is the one at the top of the list. Fuller could play a number of positions in college, but defensive back is where the Buckeyes are recruiting him, led by Ed Warinner. The New Jersey native visited Ohio State in mid-April and the Buckeyes have consistently been mentioned by him as one of his favorites since. He has a brother who plays at UCLA, and that is something that could work in the Bruins favor.

    JORDAN FULLER // WESTWOOD, NEW JERSEY
    Athlete Jordan Fuller has become a high-priority for the Buckeyes in the last few months thanks to the 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete's versatility. Fuller is another New Jersey prospect, an area the Buckeyes have hit hard recently, led by offensive line coach Ed Warinner's efforts. Fuller has a brother at UCLA, and the Bruins have offered making them a threat; he also holds offers from Alabama, Auburn and a host of others including hometown Rutgers, who is working to keep the Garden State's best close to Piscataway.

    Buckeyes Make Push For Top East Coast Athlete

    The Ohio State staff welcomed in many of the country’s top prospects during their spring practice sessions including Westwood (N.J.) Old Tappan athlete Jordan Fuller who visited Ohio State during the first part of April.

    The Ohio State staff is returning the favor. In fact the Buckeyes will stop at Fuller’s school twice this spring.

    “Coach (Chris) Ash came out a few weeks ago,” Fuller said. “He is coming back again in a week or two.”

    Ash and Fuller talk often.

    “Yeah, we talk a lot,” Fuller said. “I definitely like Ohio State.”

    The 6-foot-2 and 190-pound Fuller has plenty of options. He has an impressive list of scholarship offers that includes Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, Auburn, Notre Dame, Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Rutgers and UCLA.

    “Some schools are recruiting me as a defensive back, some as a wide receiver, and some as either one,” Fuller said. “Ohio State says defensive back.”

    Fuller plans to attend the Nike Camp in Oakland next week and says he will visit Stanford at that time. He also wants to visit Notre Dame and would like to get back to Ohio State. Fuller says he plans to eventually take his official visits.

    “I definitely want to take my five officials,” Fuller said. “There’s a good chance Ohio State will be one of them.”

    Fuller is a 4-star prospect in the 247Sports rankings. He is the country’s No. 109 overall prospect, the No. 6 athlete, and the No. 4 prospect in New Jersey.

    Spring has been a very busy time at Old Tappan High School as junior Devin Fuller continues to field offers from all over the country. His list includes offers from schools from every major conference while a few Big Ten programs seem to be pursuing him the hardest.

    FULLER ON THE OPENING, CRYSTAL BALLS
    Another place you should expect to see the Buckeye coaching staff this week is Westwood, New Jersey. Jordan Fuller says he and the Ohio State coaches are talking almost every day.
    "Ohio State is coming over this week," Fuller told Eleven Warriors. "I talk to a coach on Twitter almost every single day, it's constant contact."
    The Buckeyes are not the only program making a big push to land the country's 116th-ranked prospect.
    "The relationships I have there are about the same as with Rutgers, Penn State, and Michigan," he added. "There's always contact with everyone these days."
    This past weekend, Fuller made a long trip to Oakland, California to participate in Nike's The Opening regionals. The camp was a success – he earned an invite to The Opening while running a 4.51-40-yard dash – and he was able to stop in to visit one of the schools that have offered him: Stanford.
    "I was nursing a little groin pull the weekend Nike was in New Jersey," Fuller said, explaining the long-distance camp decision. "This was the only weekend I had a Saturday and Sunday off. I really wanted that invitation [to The Opening] so I made the trip. Stanford was close by, so my dad was like 'why not visit?' It was really nice (at Stanford.)"
    The Buckeyes are trailing UCLA, where his brother plays for the Bruins, and Rutgers on the 247Sports.com crystal ball, but there are only five current predictions. The latest, from Steve Wiltfong, was for the Buckeyes and is likely to start a trend in that direction. No decision is imminent for Fuller, but it's clear he's a priority for the Buckeyes and they're getting a very good look from him.
