Cesar Fulcar commits to Wentworth

Watertown senior guard Cesar Fulcar committed to Wentworth Institute of Technology on Monday. The 5’11” point guard also announced the commitment on his Twitter account that day, a decision that came down to Wentworth and Regis College.

This past season, Fulcar led Watertown to the Garden before they lost in the state semifinal to eventual Division 3 state champion Cardinal Spellman. The season-ending loss, a game where they had a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter, is something that will drive him going forward.

“Honestly, it was the worst feeling in the world,” Fulcar reflected. “I don’t want to ever relive that feeling.”

Fulcar was the player who made Watertown go, as he ran the show and made others better, not unlike he did playing for Mass Elite on the travel circuit. Although he’s very busy these days – he plays shortstop for the baseball team, returning to the diamond after a few years away to focus on basketball, and has a job – he is continuing to work on his jump shot for the next level. That’s been a focus already, and continues to be so as to keep defenses honest down the road.

“Growing up, I was never a jump shooter,” Fulcar said. “I was always a point guard first and looked to pass before shoot.”

Fulcar’s older brother went to Wentworth, and that certainly helped as his brother had a good experience in all facets. He saw what his brother went through along the way and had an idea of what to expect. Academics were also a part, as he wants to study business management, and he likes the plan that new head coach Arlen Galloway and his staff have for the program one year in.

“I love what Coach Galloway is doing over there for the season and what his plans were for the future with the team,” Fulcar said.

Galloway and his staff have been relentless on the recruiting trail in the area and that includes with Fulcar, who is the second member of Wentworth’s recruiting class for next year. They already got a commitment from local product Curtis Howe, Jr., who spent this season at Manhattanville College and will have three years of eligibility when he arrives in the fall, and they are hot on the trail to add more talent.

Fulcar is well-prepared for college, between his play on the court and having to manage his time now between school, another sport and his job. He figures to be a key piece in Galloway’s building of the program and should have every opportunity from the minute he arrives on campus.
