4-star defensive end Quashon Fuller signs with Florida State over Alabama

The ’Noles land a blue-chip defensive end.

Four-star defensive end Quashon Fuller has signed his National Letter of Intent to enroll at Florida State University.

The 6’3, 277 lb defensive end, from Lehigh Senior High School in Lehigh Acres, Fla., first committed to Florida State way back in April 2017, a full ten months before Willie Taggart would be named head coach. Fuller visited FSU in February of 2018 but left disappointed when he wasn’t able to meet with Taggart. Fuller visited again with his mother in May, and was able to sit down with Taggart to have his questions answered. He visited FSU a third time in July. Despite the obvious interest in Florida State, Fuller still courted other schools throughout his recruitment and once described his commitment to FSU as “shaky”.

Fuller missed all but three games of his junior year due to a shoulder injury. But he drew good reviews after showing out at The Opening camp in June and after a stellar senior season Fuller was named to the Army All-American Bowl. Fuller is listed by the 247Sports Composite as the 31st rated player in Florida and the 15th best strong-side defensive end nationally and a top-200 player. Fuller played both inside and outside along the defensive line and showcased his power.

According to an excellent profile by Naples News, Fuller has been told by his family that they are related to Fred Flowers, the first black athlete to play for Florida State, and to Flowers’ younger sister, Doby, the school’s first black homecoming queen.

Fuller also received offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and Miami, among others, and had narrowed his options to the Seminoles and the Crimson Tide before opting for the former.
