Kendall Fuller Joins Family by Committing to Virginia Tech over Clemson

Kendall Fuller has chosen to commit to the Virginia Tech Hokies ahead of ACC rivals Clemson.

Fuller gave his word during the Champion Gridiron Kings football camp. Sean Bielawski of CBS Sports reports that Fuller said, "Not going to say too much, I'm going to Virginia Tech."

Fuller, along with recent Florida commit Vernon Hargreaves, is the best pure cover cornerback in the nation. He is a major coup for the Virginia Tech coaching staff and will be very comfortable in joining his brothers and fellow teammates Kyle and Corey Fuller.

Fuller is the latest in a long line of cornerbacks to put their NFL future in the hands of the Hokies. And the results are usually very positive.

Rivals rates Fuller as the No. 1 cornerback prospect and No. 3 player overall nationally. Scout ranks Fuller as the second-best cornerback prospect behind Vernon Hargreaves.

It may not be a shock that he chose Virginia Tech, but I'm sure fans of the team will be delighted to add a consensus 5-star prospect to their already talented roster.

Kyle Fuller is already among the more talented young corners in college football. It will be great to see Kendall joining him and forming an all-Fuller cornerback tandem in the secondary.
