Earlier this week, Kendall Fuller was named to Phil Steele’s Preseason All-ACC First Team in what is quite impressive for the sophomore. Fuller proved last year that he would be one of the best returning cornerbacks in college football and has the talent to be the best cornerback in college football as a sophomore. Of course, Phil Steele announced his four Preseason All-American teams on ESPN.com and there was only one Hokie that made it.
That Hokie was Kendall Fuller.
Kendall Fuller had a sensational freshman season with 58 tackles, 6 interceptions, and 11 pass deflections in what was a ridiculously strong debut season. Fuller would also be a Freshman All-American while also being honored as the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year. Kendall Fuller would end up starting in 12 of the Hokies’ 13 games and has the potential to be the best cornerback that Virginia Tech has ever produced.
Kendall Fuller is seen as the fourth best cornerback by Phil Steele behind the two first teamers, Florida’s Vernon Hargreaves III and Oregon’s Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, plus Florida State’s P.J. Williams. Williams joins Fuller on the Second Team in the same way that the duo of ACC cornerbacks were on the Preseason All-ACC First Team. Fuller has proven himself as one of the best cornerbacks in college football and will look to finish the season as a First Team All-American.
Kendall Fuller is one of the best cornerbacks in all of college football and the Hokies are guaranteed to have him for at least two more seasons. Virginia Tech has always produced tons of great defensive backs and Kendall Fuller is ready to follow in the footsteps of other former Hokie defensive backs who have had tons of success like DeAngelo Hall, Kam Chancellor, and Brandon Flowers.
