Fuller Picks VT

On Sunday, a day after attending Tech’s second 2009 camp, Mount St. Joseph’s (Baltimore, MD) cornerback Kyle Fuller told TechSideline.com that he was leaning towards Virginia Tech over Kansas and Maryland. He also expected to make his college selection this week, which he has now done. This evening, the 6-0, 160-pound rising senior recruit gave his pledge to Tech primary recruiter Kevin Sherman.

“I committed around 9:30. I talked to Coach Sherman. He was happy and excited. He was glad I got it over with,” said Fuller, who expects to talk to Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer tomorrow. He is the 13th commitment in Tech’s 2010 recruiting class.

“I made my decision on a real gut feeling. I guess it was one of the harder decisions I’ve had to make. It came down to me feeling comfortable with Virginia Tech. I was most familiar with it.”

In Fuller, Virginia Tech has again successfully recruited the brother of a former Hokies standout. The staff scored a commitment from rising senior offensive lineman Mark Shuman, who is the younger brother of former Tech offensive line standout Ryan Shuman, earlier this year.
