High School[edit]

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Fuller attended Mount Saint Joseph High School.

He had four interceptions as a junior, returning two of those for touchdowns. He also had a punt return touchdown and kick return score that season.

In 2011, a second-team All-ACC selection at corner, he started all 14 games at two different positions on the defense. He started at nickel back/whip linebacker for seven games and corner for the other seven games. He played over 850 snaps on defense and 112 on special teams. He recorded 65 tackles, a team-high 14.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks on the season. He also added seven pass breakups, two interceptions, five quarterback hurries, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. In 2012, an honorable mention All-ACC at corner, he started all 13 games and recorded 52 tackles, including 3.0 for loss, two interceptions and five pass break-ups. In 2013, he was one of the Hokies’ four permanent captains.
