Only a freshman last year, Kendall Fuller saw action on the varsity level of one of Maryland’s top high school football programs in Good Counsel (Olney, MD). Though he wasn’t a full-time starter in 2009 (he is now in 2010), the 6-0, 175-pound defensive back/wide receiver showed enough to garner two FBS offers.
“In terms of offers, right now its Virginia and Virginia Tech,” said Vincent Fuller, Kendall’s father. The offers are verbal because Kendall can’t receive written offers until the August before his senior season. “Other schools have been by Good Counsel from what I hear.

“Right now Kendall doesn’t really have an idea of where he wants to go,” Fuller said. “He wants to see what offers he gets before he makes any kind of decision. I don’t think he’ll seriously get into it really until next year. He’ll try to get offers and then make the best decision he can.”
The success of his brothers has fueled Kendall to work hard on and off the field.
“He has seen what his brothers have gone through and that has motivated him because he wants to do the same things they’ve done,” Fuller said. “He knows he needs to work hard if he wants to accomplish what they’ve accomplished. He has some big shoes to fill. Vince is in the NFL. Corey earned a track scholarship and is now playing college football at Virginia Tech....
