“I have no clue when.”
This is how Kendall Fuller answered the question of when he would make his college choice. The prized cornerback had floated the idea of committing at the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, to which he has already been selected to play. But several of his Good Counsel (Olney, MD) classmates, including linebacker Dorian O’Daniel (Clemson), have already made their selections.
While Fuller is uncertain of when he may commit, he does have a group of schools high on his list. The 5’11”, 190-pound junior said “there are still a couple of other schools I’m considering” before listing “Clemson, Virginia Tech, Michigan and Tennessee” as the schools in his top group.
Fuller claims no clear favorite right now. He has no visits scheduled for the immediate future, but he has seen all four schools he listed. Fuller’s most recent visit to Virginia Tech was on April 21, for what was supposed to be the Spring Game. Kendall has seen plenty of Tech, so at this point he is just looking to get to know the coaches on a deeper level.
“It helps just keeping the relationships going with the coaches, and getting to know them better,” said Fuller, whose family’s history with Virginia Tech is well known. Older brothers Kyle and Corey currently play for the Hokies, while Vincent, his oldest brother, played for Tech before moving on to the NFL.
Wherever he ends up, Fuller is appreciative and humble for the opportunities he has received.
“It’s a blessing to have this situation, to be able to choose whatever college I want to go to,” Fuller said.
Fuller helped nationally-ranked Good Counsel to an undefeated record and a WCAC title this past season. In practice, he competed against one of the top wide receivers in the country in Maryland-bound Stefon Diggs.
“With Stef, he would do things you would never think of,” Fuller said. “He would beat me, but I’m never a person that gets mad. I knew I’d get better because I was going against him.”
Fuller’s standout play continued into the offseason. He was named MVP of the U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine in January, and last month he was one of the top performers at the VTO Combine in Richmond, Virginia. Of the Army Combine, Fuller said:...
