Kendall Fuller is one of the top cornerbacks in the ACC and is the leader and best playmaker for the Virginia Tech Hokies’ defense. He was expected to have a huge season, but unfortunately his season has ended before it really began.
According to a report from Andy Bitter, Fuller will miss the remainder of the 2015 season after undergoing knee surgery.

Throughout the three games that Fuller had played for the Hokies this season, he had recorded seven tackles, a defensed pass and a forced fumble.
He may not have shown the huge playmaking potential early on in the season, but there was no question that it was coming. Virginia Tech’s defense is going to take a major hit and they desperately need someone to step up and fill his role as the No. 1 corner.
Fuller is considered by many to be one of the top cornerbacks in college football, so it will be interesting to see what his future holds.
