Seneca finished their season at 5-6 this year after a first round loss to St. Xavier, falling 48-33. But lost in a somewhat disappointing year, Michael Fluellen was a major bright spot for his team. The 6-foot-5, 200-pound senior caught 54 passes for 1265 yards and 17 touchdowns this year. With the size and the production, there's no wonder that coaches are checking out the senior receiver.
"The ones I hear from the most have to be Ball State, Illinois, Kentucky and Louisville," said Fluellen. "But just about every other day another school joins my list," he said. "I've had a lot of schools with big interest, but (I have) no offers," he continued.
Fluellen felt good about the possibilities of getting an offer from Ball State, Tennessee-Martin, Illinois, Kentucky and Louisville. He's had a chance to visit Ball State, Kentucky, Cincinnati and Louisville this season.
"Kentucky was real nice," he said of the Wildcat visit. "Me and my father stopped by Cincinnati while we were in town just to tour the campus and I really was impressed," he said. "Ball State was also an interesting program," Fluellen said.
He's also looking forward to seeing the Illini. "My Illinois visit got interrupted because of some transportation problems, but that's a school I'm really excited to see. I've heard so many great things about the school and its history," he continued.
Fluellen is now in preparation mode for the next level and he's looking forward to making that transition.
"It's a big change. I have realized that I will never touch a high school football field again. That's tough, but it's something I take as motivation to get to the next level," he said. "I'm looking forward to playing against bigger, stronger and faster opponents. Also proving that I was made to play the game and show that I can compete at the next level. I want to make a difference in the game," he finished.
