With a January booked full of official visits, Kristian Fulton didn’t have a weekend to get to South Carolina.
So South Carolina came to him.
First-year Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson and defensive line coach Lance Thompson made an in-home visit to the nation’s No. 3 cornerback on Monday to make their pitch be heard loud and clear.
“It went great,” Fulton told SEC Country. “They left me with a lot to think about.”
Fulton had been in touch with Robinson on the phone and via FaceTime, but nothing compares to a face-to-face meeting.
“It’s better than over the phone, especially with them getting to talk with my parents,” Fulton said.
Soon after Muschamp left, his successor at a previous coaching stop followed.
Florida coach Jim McElwain, defensive coordinator Geoff Collins and running backs coach Tim Skipper also passed through New Orleans.
The Gators coaching staff showed up just less than 24 hours after Fulton told SEC Country that LSU was now leading his recruitment.
Florida couldn’t wait until Fulton would be in Gainesville, Fla. on Jan. 29 to visit.
After a crazy day comprised of two in-home visits from SEC schools, Fulton said it was a lot to absorb.
“It’s a lot to process with all they’re telling you,” Fulton said of his busy Monday.
Fulton also said he expects both LSU and Arkansas to make in-home visits.
