FSU football gets first commitment of 2021 class in linebacker Dequaveon Fuller

A new family pipeline to Tallahassee?

Dequaveon Fuller

Earlier today, Florida State secured the signature of strong-side defensive end Quashon Fuller as a key member of its 2019 recruiting class. And about 90 minutes later, another Fuller — Quashon’s little brother, Dequaveon — also committed to the Seminoles.

Dequaveon Fuller (5’11, 209) is an inside linebacker who, like his big brother, attends Lehigh Senior High School in Lehigh Acres, FL. Since he’s still just a sophomore, the younger Fuller has not been ranked as of yet. He received his first scholarship offer, from Florida, on January 18, and was offered by the ’Noles just yesterday.

Here is Fuller’s commitment tweet:

And here’s his offer announcement, including a shot of the two brothers together in FSU gear:

Of course, there are loads of time between now and 2021’s National Signing Day, and a ton can and will change before then. But when was the last time you saw two brothers, separated by two years, commit to the same program within two hours of each other?
