    William Fuller, Roman Catholic

    Penn State University lost another 2013 football recruit today when William Fuller, a four-star wide receiver from Roman Catholic (Philadelphia, Pa.), switched his allegiance to Notre Dame, according to the Harrisburg Patriot-News.

    The 6-foot-1, 170-pounder had a great junior year, catching 46 passes for 758 yards and 10 touchdowns. He showed tremendous potential when he snared 10 passes for 276 yards and a pair of touchdowns against Chestnut Hill Academy.

    *Brigham Young University received a commitment from wide receiver Michael Davis, who will be a senior this fall at Glendale (Calif.), according to the Glendale Press. The 6-2, 180-pounder caught 52 passes last year for 860 yards and twice scored on kickoff returns of over 90 yards. He used his great speed in track to run 100 meters in 10.67 and the 200 in 21.40.

    *Brennan (San Antonio, Texas) defensive end Derick Roberson, who will be a junior in the fall, has committed to the University of Texas, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The 6-4, 225-pounder made 105 tackles, including 31 for losses and nine sacks, as a sophomore.

    *The University of Arkansas has received a commitment from two-sport star Zack Jackson of Berryhill (Tulsa, Okla.), the Tulsa World reported. The 6-3, 195-pound quarterback threw for 2,570 yards and 23 touchdowns as a junior. He also used a mid-90s fastball to compile a 13-1 pitching record, averaging over two strikeouts per inning. He said he will play only baseball.

    *Former NFL superstar Brett Favre launched his coaching career last Monday as the full-time offensive coordinator at Oak Grove (Hattiesburg, Miss.) and head coach Nevil Barr couldn't be happier.

    Barr told the Jackson Clarion Ledger, "What I like best is his enthusiasm. He makes it fun. Football should be fun. Sometimes we forget that these kids play football because they enjoy it. Everybody knows he's competitive and he likes to win, but the biggest thing is watching how he treats our kids. The way he teaches and his patience. It shocked me how patient he's been."

    The 42-year-old Favre commented, "My experience in pro football means nothing. Absolutely nothing here. It's totally different. So our biggest learning curve as a team might be my learning curve."
