Kendall Christopher Fuller was born in Baltimore, Maryland on February 13, 1995. A cornerback for the Virginia Tech Hokies, he was voted as the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year for the 2013 season. Fuller is the younger brother of Vincent Fuller, Corey Fuller and Kyle Fuller, all of whom played football at Virginia Tech before making the step up to the NFL.
Prior to enrolling at Virginia Tech, Fuller attended Our Lady of Good Counsel, where he was coached by Bob Milloy and developed a reputation as one of the nation's best defensive prospects. In his junior year, he was an All-Met selection and he was later named as a preseason SuperPrep All-American ahead of his senior year at high school.
As a senior, Fuller was credited with 28 tackles, including a sack, eight pass breakups and three interceptions. Additionally, he managed 695 receiving yards and seven touchdowns and managed to score three touchdowns against DeMatha in the WCAC Championship Game. Named as a Parade first team All-American, he was selected for the U.S. Army All-America Game, was voted as the State Player of the Year for Maryland and was named as the U.S. Army All-American Defensive Player of the Year.
Having been widely rated as one of the top five cornerbacks in the nation by analysts, Fuller committed to Virginia Tech and was able to secure playing time as a freshman, appearing in 13 games and making 12 starts. During the year he was able to rack up 58 tackles and six interceptions. Fuller's performance against Duke, where he registered three tackles, three interceptions and a pass breakup, saw him named as the ACC Defensive Back of the Week for the first time. He later repeated the feat after a game against Virginia, where he was credited with eight tackles, four pass breakups and an interception.
At the season's conclusion, Fuller was named by coaches as the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year and a second team All-ACC selection.
