The 5-foot-11, 180-pound five-star cornerback from Baltimore, became the fourth Fuller family member to sign with Virginia Tech. His oldest brother, Vincent, was a safety for the Hokies from 2001-04 who later played in the NFL. Corey, a receiver, just finished up his senior season. Kyle, a fellow cornerback, will be a senior next year.
Fuller is Tech’s first five-star signee since Tyrod Taylor in 2007 and only its fourth since 2002, joining Victor “Macho” Harris and Marcus Vick.
He’s the 9th-ranked prospect nationally by Rivals, 18th by ESPN and 31st by 247Sports.
The addition could mean an all-Fuller cornerback tandem in the near future, with Antone Exum‘s injury leaving one spot open for competition.
Fuller has a long list of accolades, named first-team Parade All-American as an athlete, the Maryland Gatorade State Player of the Year and the U.S. Army All-American Defensive Player of the Year.
He was the Washington Post’s All-Met Offensive Player of the Year as a senior at Our Lady of Good Counsel, catching 44 passes for 695 yards and seven touchdowns, including three in the WCAC championship game against DeMatha. On defense, he had three interceptions and 28 tackles.
