01/19/2014 - Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller has pulled out of the Senior Bowl all-star game due to injuries. Named an All-Atlantic Coast Conference first-team selection in coaches' balloting, the former Mount St. Joseph standout dealt with a sports hernia throughout his senior year and had surgery in November after aggravating the injury against Miami. Fuller finished his senior year with 24 tackles, two interceptions and 10 pass deflections and was named to the All-America second team by the Walter Camp Foundation. "He was still working through an injury, rehabbing," said Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage, a former Cleveland Browns general manager and Ravens executive. "We had nine players that were a healthy scratch and 19 players who had some injury or surgery or a rehab situation where they felt like they weren't 100 percent." - Aaron Wilson, The Baltimore Sun

12/13/2013 - 2013 ALL-ACC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): CB-Kyle Fuller, Sr., Virginia Tech (32)...Fuller played in just nine games, making eight starts, and had 24 tackles, two interceptions and 10 breakups in his final season. He missed the final two games after undergoing surgery on a core muscle on Nov. 19. - Virginia Tech football

12/13/2013 - 2013 WALTER CAMP SECOND TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: DB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech, 6-0 194, Sr., Baltimore, MD...Fuller played in just nine games, making eight starts, and had 24 tackles, two interceptions and 10 breakups in his final season. He missed the final two games after undergoing surgery on a core muscle on Nov. 19. "I would like to thank God first and foremost, because without him, none of this would be possible," Fuller said. "It's an honor to be selected for this achievement and I am very thankful."

By making one of the five nationally recognized All-America squads (AP, Walter Camp, Sporting News, FWAA, AFCA), Fuller becomes the eighth Tech cornerback to earn All-America honors to accomplish that feat. Other Hokie cornerbacks to be recognized were: Jayron Hosley (2010, So.), Victor "Macho" Harris (2008, Sr.), Brandon Flowers (2006, r-So.; 2007, r-Jr.), Jimmy Williams (2005, Sr.), DeAngelo Hall (2003, Jr.), Ronyell Whitaker (2001, r-Sr.) and Anthony Midget (1999, Sr.). - Virginia Tech football

12/04/2013 - 2013 ALL-ACC THIRD TEAM (MEDIA): CB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech, 6-0, 193, Sr., Baltimore, Md. (58)...Has been selected Third Team All-ACC for the 2013 college football season by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA). - Virginia Tech football

11/23/2013 - Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller has had surgery to repair what trainer Mike Goforth describes as a "sportsman's hernia." Goforth says Dr. William Meyers performed the surgery Tuesday in Philadelphia. Goforth said Thursday that Fuller is expected to make a full recovery after 4-6 weeks of rehabilitation.

The senior has been battling a groin injury since the Hokies' bye week before they played Duke on Oct. 26. He played sparingly against the Blue Devils, missed the Hokies' game at Boston College, lasted only a few plays at Miami and did not dress for the Hokies' last game against Maryland. Virginia Tech is 1-3 in those games. The timeline for his return leaves open the possibility that Fuller could be back in time to play in Virginia Tech's bowl game. - AP Sports

09/01/2013 - Fuller flashes in Hokies' loss to Alabama...The interception came with Alabama leading 21-7 midway through the second quarter. Fuller initially lined up 8 yards off of Alabama junior DeAndre White, before reading McCarron's eyes and cutting in front of the junior wideout to snatch away the ball. Fuller weaved for 11 yards before being tackled. Virginia Tech kicked a field goal shortly thereafter in what wound up being their final points.

While Fuller's impressive evening against the defending champs is sure to gain kudos with scouts, his name is far from unknown to talent evaluators. Fuller is one of four brothers who have played for the Hokies. His oldest brother, Vincent, played seven years in the NFL as a defensive back. Another brother, Corey was selected by the Detroit Lions in the sixth round of the 2013 draft. The youngest of the group, Kendall, signed with Virginia Tech as a five-star recruit this year. He looked like a future standout, himself, earning the start opposite his brother with Exum still recovering from knee surgery. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

09/01/2013 - Fuller flashes in Hokies' loss to Alabama...The Chick-fil-A Kickoff matchup of Alabama and Virginia Tech came with plenty of subplots. Among them, was the opportunity to evaluate the secondaries from two of college football's best producers of NFL defensive back talent. Alabama safety Hasean Clinton-Dix and Virginia Tech cornerback Antone Exum dominated the buzz entering the game, but it was Hokies cornerback Kyle Fuller who stood out Saturday, intercepting one pass from AJ McCarron and knocking down multiple others in the 35-10 loss.

Often drawing one on one matchups against star wideout Amari Cooper, the 6-0, 190-pound Fuller showed better-than-advertised closing speed as well as excellent timing and hand-eye coordination to rip the ball away on several well-placed passes. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

08/11/2013 - TOP VIRGINIA TECH PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 3. CB Kyle Fuller (6-0, 193, 4.52)...It seems at least one member of the Fuller family has been starring on the Hokies football team for over a decade and Kyle is the latest to make his mark in Blacksburg. Fuller, who is entering his fourth season as a starter (34 starts on his resume), has bounced around the Virginia Tech defense, spending tim at nickel cornerback, whip linebacker and field cornerback. He is a versatile player with the athleticism to cover and the aggressiveness to play the run. Fuller enjoys throwing his body around in run support and is a usually-disciplined tackler, doing a nice job beating blocks to show up at the line of scrimmage.

He has smooth hips and natural footwork for an easy transition in coverage, but lacks elite speed and struggles to recover after the receiver gains a step. Fuller will get caught out of position when he tries to freelance, but the game appears to come natural to him, showing the knack for making plays on the ball with outstanding ballskills. With Exum's status uncertain for the start of the 2013 season, more responsibility will be on Fuller's shoulders as the clear-cut leader of the secondary and a big chance to boost his draft stock. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
