To determine how good UCLA receiver Devin Fuller can be, all you have to do is listen to the guy throwing him the ball.

Quarterback Brett Hundley flung a pass that seemed headed for Riverside during a practice at Cal State San Bernardino. Fuller, who had defenders choking on his vapor trail 20 yards back, caught it in stride for a 7-yard touchdown.

Can Hundley even throw a pass that Fuller can’t chase down?

“That’s a good question,” Hundley said. “He is so deceptively fast. His body looks normal, but his feet are moving so much faster than people think. I tell him every time we run that play, I’m looking, get open.”

Fuller, a converted quarterback, had 20 receptions for 145 yards and two touchdowns while learning the position as a freshman in 2012.

“The plan was to redshirt last year, but he was so good, we couldn’t keep him off the field,” Hundley said. “He’s going to be a big-time receiver.”
