The cousin of 2011 Clemson signee Mike Bellamy will more than likely start receiving more offers once summer begins, and the one school that Tajarvis Fuller Tajarvis Fuller

would love to see is the school his cousin attends.

Fuller is a 6-1, 185-pound outside linebacker/safety prospect out of Dunbar High School in Fort Myers, Fla., and he already boasts offers from nine schools, including UCLA, Illinois, Georgia Tech and Wisconsin.

However, he has said he has heard so many good things about the Tigers that he wants to attend Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney’s camp in June and impress the coaches enough to where they make the offer.

“They want me to come up to their camp,” he told TigerNet Thursday afternoon. “I am more than likely going to sit down with my parents and coaches and talk about it, and I will probably be up there. I’ve talked to Mike, and I’ve talked to Sammy Watkins, and they both say that Clemson is THE school to be at. They say it is just like home. So I want to take Clemson into consideration and take an official visit up there and see what it is like.”

Fuller said Bellamy is also ready to get Clemson.

“He is very excited,” he said. “I talked to him a few weeks ago, and he said he is ready to get up there and see what college is all about. I went to one of his games when he was a junior, and he had a spectacular game. I think he is going to have a great Clemson career.”

Fuller tallied 133 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, three sacks, six forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries as a junior, and said that some colleges are indicating he may be more of a safety prospect on the collegiate level.

“I think the physical part of my game is what sets me apart,” he said. “I try to go 100 percent on every single play. I never slack off on a play, because you never know who is watching. I can feel like I can play either the safety spot or the linebacker spot. It doesn’t matter. I like being down in the box to hit people, but it’s whatever the coaches think. I am still going to give you everything I have on every play.”
vHe said he recently took visits to Central Florida, Miami, Florida St. and Florida, and said he enjoyed Central Florida and Miami the most.

“I have always been a Hurricane fan, and went down to their campus and fell in love with it,” he said. “But I really liked the Central Florida campus, and the new stadium they have. As for FSU, I don’t really like that school. No particular reason, but that is just not my style. “

Fuller said that Miami, Illinois, UCF, Florida and Clemson are currently in his top five, but that could change dramatically if the Tigers make an offer.

“Clemson is already up there, and I would possibly commit if they offer,” he said. “I am just going to wait until the summer gets here, and see what they are going to do. When they see me play, they are going to want me. If they offer, then they really jump up there.”
