Marcus Davis and Corey Fuller are both on the rosters for the East-West Shrine Game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Jan. 19. They’ll play on the East team for head coach Jerry Glanville.
Davis, despite receiving criticism for his lack of blocking late in the year, finished nine yards shy of Andre Davis‘ single-season Hokies receiving record. He had 51 catches for 953 yards and five touchdowns.
Fuller, the second oldest of his football-playing brothers from Maryland, stepped into a larger role after D.J. Coles went out with a season-ending injury. He finished with 43 catches for 815 yards and six touchdowns.
Linebacker Bruce Taylor previously accepted an invitation to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at The Home Depot Center in Los Angeles on Jan. 19.
At the high school level, Virginia Tech commits have also been playing in a number of all-star games. This weekend, cornerback Kendall Fuller and defensive lineman Wyatt Teller played in the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio, safety Holland Fisher played in the Under Armour All-American Game in St. Petersburg and offensive lineman Braxton Pfaff played in the Semper Fidelis All-American game in Los Angeles.
Fuller, a five-star cornerback from Our Lady of Good Counsel in Olney, Md., was presented with the American Family Insurance Defensive Player of the Year award at a banquet prior to the game.
