A little tidbit on Fuller from the first game of the season versus the almighty Crimson Tide:
Alabama safety Hasean Clinton-Dix and Virginia Tech cornerback Antone Exum dominated the buzz entering the game, but it was Hokies cornerback Kyle Fuller who stood out Saturday, intercepting one pass from AJ McCarron and knocking down multiple others in the 35-10 loss.
Often drawing one on one matchups against star wideout Amari Cooper, the 6-0, 190-pound Fuller showed better-than-advertised closing speed as well as excellent timing and hand-eye coordination to rip the ball away on several well-placed passes.
The interception came with Alabama leading 21-7 midway through the second quarter. Fuller initially lined up 8 yards off of Alabama junior DeAndre White, before reading McCarron's eyes and cutting in front of the junior wideout to snatch away the ball. Fuller weaved for 11 yards before being tackled. Virginia Tech kicked a field goal shortly thereafter in what wound up being their final points.
While Fuller's impressive evening against the defending champs is sure to gain kudos with scouts, his name is far from unknown to talent evaluators. Fuller is one of four brothers who have played for the Hokies.
