Kendall became the fourth Fuller brother to suit up for Virginia Tech, and will be the fourth to play in the NFL. Scouts have even praised Kendall as arguably the most talented of them all. A former high school All-American, he had a major impact on defense as a true freshman, starting 12 games and intercepting six passes as he garnered Freshman All-American, second-team All-ACC and Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Fuller continued to impress during his sophomore campaign, earning second team All-American honors from numerous sources and first team all-ACC nods from the coaches and media- all while playing with a fractured wrist on which he had surgery after the season. Fuller was bitten by the injury bug before the 2015 season as he tore the meniscus in his right knee during preseason camp. He attempted to play through the injury, but decided to hang it up after three games to have it repaired.
