In this edition of “Notes,” we check in with Mount St. Joseph’s (Baltimore, MD) standout cornerback Kyle Fuller, several rising senior -and one rising junior – prospects from the state of Virginia and Tech 2009 recruit Tariq Edwards, who was recently selected to the USA junior national team to play in the inaugural IFAF Junior World Championship.

Fuller Claims a Favorite…

6-1, 165-pound cornerback prospect Kyle Fuller just completed outdoor track season, finishing fourth in the long jump and helping Mount St. Joseph’s (Baltimore, MD) 4X1, 4X2 and 4X4 relay squads to third, second and second places finishes, respectively, in the MIAA championships. Fuller’s focus now turns to football as well as his decision making process.

“I’m in good shape coming from track,” Fuller said. “I want to get stronger, focus on improving my defense and also helping my football team next year. I’ll be playing more offense next year.”

Virginia Tech is one of four schools to officially offer Fuller, who is a younger brother of former Tech and current Tennessee Titans standout Vincent Fuller. Kyle’s father, Vincent Sr., provided the latest on the overall recruiting front.

“Tech is out there [with an offer]. Maryland, Duke and Kansas have offered, too,” said Vincent Fuller, who added that all schools are recruiting Kyle to play cornerback, kick-returner and punt-returner. “Syracuse gave a verbal offer but we haven’t seen anything in writing. Penn State and Michigan State are sending letters, but I know Virginia, Syracuse and West Virginia have been by the school to see him and have talked to him.”

The elder Fuller believes Kyle would like to make a decision before the start of the 2009 year. Is this true?

“It would be nice,” Kyle answered. “Whenever I feel comfortable about the school I’m going to, I would commit. Once I have a chance to go to all the colleges I have interest in, I think I might be able to do it.”

Fuller attended one of Virginia Tech’s camps last summer and hopes to return again this summer. He considered heading to Blacksburg for the Spring Game, but a track meet derailed that plan. And he had eyed Tech’s first 2009 senior camp on June 6th but will take the SAT instead.

For now, Fuller hopes to be in Blacksburg for Tech’s July senior camp. He stated what other programs he would like to visit as well.
