This week’s player to watch: Jeff Fuller

Jeff Fuller could have entered the NFL Draft last spring and found himself playing on Sundays this year.

Instead, the senior wide receiver decided to stay at Texas A&M and try to set as many school records as possible. So far, he hasn’t had much trouble in that department.

Fuller sits atop the Aggies’ record books in three major categories. He is Texas A&M’s career receptions leader with 213, career receiving yards leader with 2,786 and career receiving touchdowns leader with 31.

He has battled injuries this season, but they haven’t slowed him down all that much. As a senior, he has grabbed 50 passes for 522 yards and three touchdowns. Along with Ryan Swope, quarterback Ryan Tannehill has two highly reliable receivers to target in the passing game.

If K-State’s secondary is to redeem itself after allowing more than 500 passing yards in back-to-back games, it will need to find a way to effectively defend Fuller.
