KENDALL FULLER MAKES IT TO JUNIOR DAY

Kendall Fuller , who has reached 5-star status on Rivals.com, is certainly no stranger to Virginia Tech.  He was in Blacksburg again last weekend, attending the junior day event on Saturday and spending some time with his older brothers, Kyle and Corey, on Saturday night.

“To be honest, he does know a lot about [Virginia Tech] already, so he wasn’t looking for anything in particular,” said Vince Fuller, Kendall’s father.  “He’s just starting the process of trying to narrow the list.”

It should be a while before the 5’11”, 185-pound cornerback/wide receiver recruit narrows his list to a final five, but Good Counsel football’s Twitter feed recently revealed the top prospect’s current top eight.  The list includes Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Maryland, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.

Vince stressed, though, that “Kendall’s options are still open.  He’s just really starting to plan out what schools he will visit before he starts taking official visits.  We’re going to try and make as many junior days as we possibly can.  After that, by the time he starts his senior year, he should have a better idea of a top five.”

Next on the visit front is Clemson on March 3rd.  Fuller has also set a visit to Michigan on April 14.  Another date to remember will come next January, as Kendall is leaning towards making his college announcement at the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Fuller has potential on either side of the ball on the college level, but corner is where he wants to play.

“He’s lifting to get stronger and working on his speed,” Vince said of what his son is looking to improve this offseason.  “Technique-wise, he’s working on being a defensive back.”

TSL’s take:  Virginia Tech continues to be in strong position here.  I don’t see anything changing that, and I fully expect Tech to be one of the finalists come decision time.  Given the competition it wouldn’t be a surprise to Fuller head elsewhere, but again Tech will likely be one of the favorites throughout.
