The Fuller dynasty at Virginia Tech is coming to a close. Defensive back Kendall Fuller, who missed the majority of the 2015 season due to injury, will skip his senior season of eligibility at Virginia Tech and declare for the 2016 NFL Draft.
Fuller sustained a torn meniscus during Virgina Tech’s summer camps but managed to play in the first three games of the season. That was all he could do though as his season ended after just those three games so he could undergo surgery on his right knee. While his final season in Blacksburg did not go quite to plan, Fuller left his mark on the program, as did his brothers that came before him.
“Virginia Tech is better because the Fuller brothers were Hokies,” retiring Virgina Tech head coach Frank Beamer said in a statement. “Vinny, Corey, Kyle and Kendall were all different, but they were all the same in that they were smart, competitive, very athletic and great teammates, who possessed great character.”
Fuller was the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013 and a first-team All-ACC player in 2014. If healthy, he could go as early as in the first round in the upcoming NFL Draft.
