Senior linebacker Gabe Fuster eyes a college commitment
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
We’ve followed Deep Creek linebacker Gabe Fuster since he was coming out of eighth grade and landed at then Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School in Virginia Beach.
Fuster played for Coach Chris Scott, and early in his sophomore season, he transferred from Bishop Sullivan to Deep Creek. Since then, he’s made his name as the back bone of the Hornet defense.
He now has his eyes on a college commitment and he has narrowed down his offer list to a select few. He has spent quite a few spring weekends visiting colleges and quite a few summers camping and building relationships with college coaches.
Via Twitter, Fuster announced a final four of Virginia Tech, Florida Atlantic, Liberty and UMass on Thursday afternoon.
The Virginia Tech offer came before he entered the ninth grade. Florida Atlantic offered in the spring of his ninth grade year at Bishop Sullivan. The Liberty and UMass offers are more recent.
With the announcement, Fuster gave no indication of when he would announce a verbal commitment to his intended school. We’ll stay tuned and continue to watch him lead his Deep Creek team as they attempt to stay undefeated on the season.
Friday night, Deep Creek (2-0) hosts Grassfield (1-1).
