Corey Fuller: Video Highlights for Former Virginia Tech WR

0 of 5

    The Fuller family has quite the football history at Virginia Tech University, but at first Corey Fuller attempted to buck that trend, enrolling at Kansas as a track star.

    However, eventually Fuller transferred to Blacksburg, and by the 2012 season, Fuller had worked his way into a prominent offensive role, reeling in 43 passes for 815 yards and six touchdowns.

    Here's a look at some of the highlights of Fuller's time with the Hokies.

Great Hands: vs. Boston College (2012)

1 of 5

    Granted, as a former track star, Corey Fuller is best known for his speed. However, that isn't to say that he's a one-trick pony, or that like many track athletes who try to make it in football, he can't catch.

    Quite the opposite, in fact.

    As Fuller shows in this highlight from last year's tilt with Boston College, his hands are fine, with Fuller doing an excellent job of staying with the play and hauling in the football for a remarkable catch.

Dusting Defenders: vs. North Carolina (2012)

2 of 5

    As I said before, Corey Fuller has speed, well, to burn, with the 6'2", 204-pounder ripping off a sub-4.4-second 40-yard dash time at February's NFL Scouting Combine.

    That speed was on display in last October's win over the North Carolina Tar Heels.

    In that game, Fuller caught five passes for 145 yards and this long touchdown, in which he quite simply ran right past the defense.

Dusting Defenders Redux: vs. Cincinnati (2012)

3 of 5

    There's more than one way to skin a cat. (Or so they say)

    There's also more than one way that Fuller can make opposing defenses pay with his speed.

    In a September loss to the Cincinnati Bearcats, it wasn't the catch itself, but what Fuller did after it that was the story.

    In the highlight, Fuller catches a ball over the middle at the Cincinnati 40-yard line, turns on the jets and it's bye-bye time.

YAC Attack: vs. Austin Peay (2012)

4 of 5

    If wide receivers who excel after the catch have a weakness, it's that often times they think about what they're going do after hauling in a reception before actually doing it, which leads to drops.

    In a September win over Austin Peay, Fuller does a fine job of not falling into that trap.

    On this touchdown catch, Fuller first looks the ball in before turning his focus upfield, and the result is six points for the Hokies.

Great Concentration: vs. Florida State (2012)

5 of 5

    Virginia Tech came up short in its November ACC showdown with Florida State, but that was through no fault of Corey Fuller.

    In that game, Fuller made seven catches for 124 yards and this touchdown, a great catch on a wheel route from the slot in which Fuller maintains his concentration despite tight coverage.
