“I heard about (my height) a lot,” the 5-8, 190-pound senior said. “I didn’t have any other Division I offers. I’ve got a chip on my shoulder, and I’m ready to go.”
Before Fullbright heard from Houston, he went on an official visit to Henderson State, a Division II program in Arkadelphia, Ark.
“I went to Henderson State, and they offered me 100 percent,” Fullbright said. “I committed.”
During this time, his father James Fullbright had reached out to an old teammate who just so happened to be named the new head football coach at Houston early in the new year. A month after Dana Holgorsen’s introductory press conference, Fullbright decommitted from Henderson State and announced that he would be continuing his academic and football careers as a preferred walk-on at Houston.
