Fuller, a senior from Baltimore, was a first-team All-ACC pick by the coaches after making eight starts this season and finishing with 24 tackles, two interceptions and 10 pass breakups.
He had surgery on a core muscle on Nov. 19 and missed the final two games of the year. His status for the bowl game is to be determined.
“I would like to thank God first and foremost, because without him, none of this would be possible,” Fuller said. “It’s an honor to be selected for this achievement and I am very thankful.”
Fuller is the eighth Hokies cornerback to garner All-America honors, joining Jayron Hosley (2010, So.), Victor “Macho” Harris (2008, Sr.), Brandon Flowers (2006, r-So.; 2007, r-Jr.), Jimmy Williams (2005, Sr.), DeAngelo Hall (2003, Jr.), Ronyell Whitaker (2001, r-Sr.) and Anthony Midget (1999, Sr.).
Virginia Tech has had 41 All-American honorees. Fuller is the Hokies’ first All-American since running back David Wilson was a second-team selection in 2011 by the Associated Press.
