Fresno State signed four receivers for the class of 2013 and in the new spread offense, the Bulldogs like to throw the ball all over the yard.
Because of this, they will need someone from the incoming class to come in and contribute to their high octane spread offense right away.
Gardena (Calif.) Serra standout Darrell Fuery will be one of the incoming receivers that gets a long look.
Fuery, who comes from one of Southern California's best football talent factories, chose Fresno State over offers from Idaho and Sacramento State.
"When I went up there on my visit the atmosphere was really nice," Fuery said. "The people were really cool. The players made me feel that I was at home.
"I've seen the offense and I felt that I could fit in the offense. That's why I chose Fresno State."
Fuery did entertain his other offers, but in the end he knew he wanted to be a Bulldog.
"I visited Idaho and I liked that visit too, it was awesome," Fuery said. "I just couldn't turn down Fresno State."
Last month Fuery drove up from Gardena to Fresno so he could check out the spring game.
"It was real cool," Fuery said about Fresno State's spring game. "The coaches told me to come in here hungry and ready to play."
The Serra flyer is doing his best to make sure that he is ready for his opportunity once he gets to Fresno State and is keeping in shape by running track. He runs the 100, 200, 4x100 and 4x200. His best 100 is 10.83 and his best 200 is 21.6. Serra currently has the top times in both relays.
Like all players who want to get early playing time, Fuery is putting in the work.
"I'm always in the weight room," Fuery said. "When I don't have track meets, on weekends, I do football workouts. I workout with my quarterback [Jalen Greene].
"I can't wait to get Fresno State. Get into the offense and learn it. I want to get more comfortable with my coaches and my quarterbacks."
Fuery earned all-league after catching 33 passes for 615 yards and 11 touchdowns. He is completely qualified and will report to Fresno State in June.
