2014 WR Hansley Fleurejus, Antelope Valley College (Hialeah HS) 

Lancaster, CA

HT: 5’7 WT: 175 40-YD: 4.44

2013 stats: 53 receptions, 614 yards, 1 TD. Ranked #2 in Antelope VC’s conference in catches and #6 in receiving yards.

Current GPA: 3.25

Eligibility remaining: Three years

Fleurejus has been hearing from Henderson St., a DII program, but has his sights set on bigger programs. “They love my film, wanted me to visit, but they asked me on short notice and I couldn’t make it,” he said.

Advantage of playing JuCo football: “I’ve learned nothing comes easy, it’s a struggle to get where you want to go in life. If you really want something, you have to work extremely hard to get it. No matter what it is, if you push yourself and work, good things will happen.”

He felt like he excelled with: “my hands. Every time the ball was thrown my way, I caught it. I really improved my hands,” he said. He added “my mother named me right, calling me Hansley. My hands are 100.”

2014 QB Dillon Vallejo, Dade Christian School

Hialeah, FL

HT: 6’3 WT: 180 40-YD: 4.9

GPA: 3.7

Stats: 484 passing yards, five TDs. Scored three rushing TDs. Missed time due to a sprained MCL, but he reports he’s fully recovered.

Starts for the basketball team at power forward. Averaged eight points and seven rebounds last season.

Programs interested: Columbia, Cornell, Holy Cross, Davidson, Jacksonville U

Columbia: “They’ve been recruiting since last year. I’ve had the chance to visit and get to know the staff, so I could see myself there for four years.”

Cornell: “They’ve haven’t been recruiting me heavily, but I know the program is in good hands and the staff has reached out to me before.”

Holy Cross: “I’ve spoken to the QB coach quite a few times. I attended camp there and I really like how they interact and coach their players. It’s a stable program that really pushes academics,” Vallejo said. “I get the feeling they see a lot of potential in me and think I am a good fit for what they’re trying do offensively.”

Davidson: “I get emails and calls from them a lot and we’re working on setting up a visit.”

No. 1 factor when choosing a program: “It’s going to be academics for me. It’s not just the next four years I’m looking at, it’s a 40-year plan I have to consider.”

Vallejo works out with Thaddeus Lewis, a quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. He’s thrown routes during his workouts to Dolphins WR Mike Wallace and Texans WR Andre Johnson. “I don’t know what to say other than those guys are amazing to throw with.”

2015 WR Dae’mhun Fuller, Coral Gables

Coral Gables, FL

HT: 6’1 WT: 165 40-YD: 4.59

Programs interested: Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Purdue, East Carolina

Stats: 10 catches, 276 yards, one TD

Fuller Plans to run track and play for a 7-on-7 team during the offseason.

No. 1 factor when choosing a program: “I want to play in a spread offense in college.”

School location & early playing time: “Location won’t matter, I’d almost prefer to leave Florida,” he shared. “I’d like the opportunity to contribute early for the program I decide on.”

Best part of his game: “Running routes. I can get good separation from the defensive backs, I’m difficult to cover.”

Coral Gables asst. David Cooney says of Fuller: “He’s grown so much over the season, it’s amazing. He’s playing a lot faster and picks things up fast. He’s a little undersized currently, but we’re going to work him hard in the weight room and he’ll run track to increase his top end speed. He has the opportunity to really improve next season, become an elite prospect.”
