Kyle Fuller ‘s recruiting card

Senior standout Kyle Fuller missed Mount St. Joseph’s (Baltimore, MD) final seven games of the 2009 season, only able to watch from the sideline as his team finished with a 2-8 record. The 6-0, 165-pound Virginia Tech cornerback recruit received some good news yesterday, though, learning that he will be able to play in the Crab Bowl on December 19th.

“I got the okay from the doctor. I’m pretty excited to be able to play,” said Fuller, who continues to recover from the torn finger ligament that prematurely ended his senior season. He is expected to play cornerback in the Maryland high school all-star game. “I know there will be a lot of good players there.”

Fuller’s injury required surgery, which went well. He has since been rehabilitating the injury and continues to work to get back to 100 percent.

“I’m still healing,” said Fuller. “I’m strengthening it now, so I started working out a few weeks ago. I’m not 100 percent, but I’m improving.”

Back in the weight room, Fuller aims to be stronger and bigger by the time he enrolls at Virginia Tech. He also plans to run track in order to get faster for the next level.

Workout-wise, Fuller has been able to learn some from his older brother. Former Virginia Tech standout Vincent Fuller II, who now plays in the NFL for the Tennessee Titans, works out with and offers advice to his younger brother. He had a simple piece of advice for Kyle in terms of what to expect at Virginia Tech.

“He has let me know that I need to go in and work hard,” Fuller said.

Kyle hopes to become the next in Virginia Tech’s line of successful cornerbacks.

“I like how they prepare their corners,” Fuller said. “Talking to Coach Gray, he definitely gets the defensive backs working hard. He is teaching them stuff to make them better corners. That’s what I like. A lot of good corners come out of Virginia Tech.”
