5-star Fuller talks Hokies

Olney (Md.) Good Counsel five-star cornerback Kendall Fuller has been to Virginia Tech too many times to count. However, the nation's top player at his position went to junior day this weekend with the rest of his family to see Blacksburg again. How did it go?

"It was a good visit, we had a bunch of birthdays in the family in the same week so we all went out there to see my brothers and take in junior day," said the 6-foot-0, 185-pounder. "My brother Corey was supposed to do the triple jump in track but they rested him for next week, but we all hung out together as a family."

Fuller's brother Corey is a wide receiver on the Tech football team and a track standout while his other brother, Kyle, is a cornerback on the team. His oldest brother, Vincent, played his football at Virginia Tech as well which is why most people think the nation's No. 4 player will also end up in Blacksburg.

"I hear that a lot obviously," he said. "There is a great comfort level at Virginia Tech with the coaches and my brothers. I also know some of the players because I've been there so much, but I'm going to make the decision that is right for me and my entire family is behind me on that."

Fuller recently came out with his top eight schools which consisted of Virginia Tech, Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Maryland, Michigan, South Carolina and Tennessee. Like his teammate and friend, linebacker Dorian O'Daniel, he has some big visits coming up.

"I'm going to Clemson on March 3rd and then to Michigan on April 14th," he said. "Dorian is going to both as well. I also want to see South Carolina, Florida State and Tennessee as well but I don't have those dates set."

As for camps, Fuller will participate in the Rivals.com/VTO Camp in Virginia on April 7 as well as a NIKE Camp and hopefully The Opening and Top Gun.

He plans to make his decision at the U.S. Army All American Bowl in January of next year.
