As a native of Florida, Gaberiel Fuster has been impressed by his roots during campus visits to the “sunshine state” last month.
The Deep Creek (Chesapeake, VA) linebacker spent time at Miami, USF, UCF and FAU.
“Very impressed by all of them,” he said. “It’s paradise. USF and UCF are definitely both on the rise. Great energy and atmosphere at both places. Got the opportunity to get face to face with the linebacker coaches and start developing a relationship with them.”
Fuster currently holds scholarship offers from Virginia Tech and FAU.
The 2020 prospect believes both programs have shown the most interest so far during the recruiting process.
“Obviously the schools that standout out to me are the ones I have offers from because they already believe in me,” he said. “Living in Virginia I get to go to VT a lot. Love [defensive coordinator] Bud Foster and [running backs coach] Zohn Burden. FAU was special as well. Cornerbacks coach Keynodo Hudson and [defensive coordinator] Tony Pecoraro were happy to see me come down. Really enjoyed it.”
Fuster received an invite to the Ray Lewis Academy for the second straight off-season. The event will take place at IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) during June.
“Work with arguably one of the best to ever do it!” he said of Hall of Famer Ray Lewis. “It was an amazing experience last year so I’m excited to show how much better I have gotten as well!”
The sophomore is also planning to attend the Southeast Elite Underclassmen Camp and the Under Armour All-American Camp Series later this month.
Fuster will be back on college campuses as well with camps at Duke, Clemson, South Carolina and UNC.
