Draft Scout Kendall Fuller News
09/30/15 - Hokies lose projected 1st round CB Kendall Fuller to knee surgery...What had been expected to be a terrific 2016 class of cornerbacks took a significant hit Tuesday with the news that Virginia Tech junior Kendall Fuller has opted for season-ending surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. "Kendall was very determined to compete for as long as he could with this injury," Frank Beamer said in a statement released via Virginia Tech's official Twitter feed. "While we are all disappointed that he is sidelined for the remainder of the season, we know Kendall will approach his rehab with a positive attitude and will continue to contribute to our team with his knowledge and leadership." The injury was originally suffered in the preseason, according to Hokies defensive secondary coach Torrian Gray.
"Just got out of practice so I hadn't heard exactly if he's gotten surgery or how it turned out and what's the expected return time," Gray said, according to Andy Bitter, the Virginia Tech beat writer for The Roanoke Times and Roanoke.com. "It's something he tried to battle through as long as he can," Gray said. "And him being a gamer and wanting to play. It just didn't progress." Fuller, entered the year regarded by some talent evaluators as one of the safest prospects in the country. He was often described as the most gifted of a family that included former Virginia Tech standouts and current NFL players Vincent, Corey and Kyle Fuller. He'd earned ACC Defensive Freshman Rookie of the Year honors in 2013 and First Team all-conference accolades after last season and currently projects as a first round pick, ranking 12th overall on NFLDraftScout.com's board, regardless of position. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
10/16/14 - Scouting the Virginia Tech pass defense: Pittsburgh also boasts one of the best young receivers in college football in sophomore Tyler Boyd. Boyd is among the ACC's leaders in catches, yards and touchdowns and will be a tough matchup for the Hokies. But they're confident in their ability to shut Boyd down, because they have one of the best cornerbacks in the country in sophomore Kendall Fuller. Fuller leads the ACC and is tied for first nationally with 13 passes defended. Fuller recorded his first interception return for a touchdown in the Hokies' win at North Carolina on Oct. 4. He became the fourth Fuller brother to score a touchdown in a Hokies' uniform, joining Vinnie, Corey and Kyle, all of whom went on to play in the NFL. - The Sports Xchange
