Name: Kendall Fuller
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 185 lbs.
Position: Cornerback
Class: 2013
School: Olney (MD) Good Counsel

Notes: Holds offers from Alabama, Boston College, Cal, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Purdue, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia . . . Had 25.5 tackles and 3 interceptions as a junior in 2011 . . . Had 30 tackles and 2 interceptions as a sophomore in 2010 . . . Claims a 4.5 forty . . . Rivals 5-star, #4 overall . . . 247 Sports 4-star, 96 grade, #3 CB, #20 overall . . . Scout 4-star CB . . . ESPN 5-star CB . . . Teammate of 2013 target Dorian O'Daniel (scouting report); 2012 targets Wes Brown (Maryland) and Stefon Diggs (Maryland); and Michigan cornerback Blake Countess . . . Older brothers Vincent, Kyle, and Corey all play/played for Virginia Tech

Strengths: Good but not great speed . . . Good acceleration . . . Shows excellent awareness of route combinations . . . Disciplined footwork from the cornerback position . . . Difficult to beat deep . . . Clearly well schooled in nuances of coverage . . . Shows good vision and change of direction with ball in his hands

Weaknesses: Tackling is an issue . . . Soft tackler and runner . . . Not a high effort kid . . . Seems to be on cruise control at times . . . Would like to see him sprint across goal line instead of jog

Projection: Cornerback.  I think Rivals ranks Fuller a little too high at #4 nationally.  He's a good player, but he's not the dynamic athlete you would typically see ranked that highly.  He's a high 4-star prospect, in my opinion, but perhaps not 5-star caliber.  He could go to lots of schools, start as a true freshman, and have a very good career.

Reminds me of: A slightly faster version of Donovan Warren


  1. How do you think he stacks up with Burrows and the other CB that OSU picked up? Any other CBs Michigan has a shot at that you would put ahead of Fuller?

  2. Do we have any real shot of landing this guy? Isn't he the one who has 4 brothers who've all attended Virginia or something?

    1. He's visiting for the spring game with Dorian O'Daniel, so anything can happen. But his three older brothers all played for Virginia Tech, so I doubt Fuller will commit to Michigan.
