Who is this Travis Fulgham guy who keeps making plays at fall camp?
A quick google search produces very little in terms of recruiting information. 247 Sports doesn’t seem to be aware of him. Rivals showed interest from Hampton, Richmond and Ohio but no offers. ESPN was not aware of him.
He does not have a bio on ODUSports.com, not yet anyways. That’s because he is a freshman walkon. I imagine one will be coming shortly, especially at his current trajectory. Fulgham is now listed as Melvin Vaughn’s backup at wide receiver, a pretty significant accomplishment considering he has seemingly vaulted past recruits the staff worked tirelessly to recruit.
Here’s what we do know.
During ODU’s first scrimmage he took a Shuler Bentley sideline pass 90 plus yards for a score. He’s listed at 6’3, 195 pounds and can separate in the air. In 2012 he posted 58 catches for 1,614 yards and 14 touchdowns for Massanutten Military Academy. That was in ten games. In 2013 he transferred to Broad Run and posted 37 catches for 810 yards, maintaining a very high ypc average, and 8 touchdowns. Then he proceeded to lead the Broad Run Basketball team as a high flying small forward. His play earned him 5A South second team honors in basketball.
