High school career
Fuller grew up playing basketball. He began playing football his freshman year of high school, and later earned a spot on the varsity team prior to his sophomore year. During his junior year, he caught 27 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns. He recorded 37 receptions for 448 yards and five touchdowns as a senior. He received Second Team All-District 9-4A honors for both his junior and senior years.
During his college recruitment period, Fuller initially committed to play for the Oklahoma Sooners. He wanted to play for Texas A&M, partly because his father played there, but did not commit to the school since then-head coach Dennis Franchione ran the option offense. While Fuller was still committed to the Sooners, A&M replaced Franchione with Mike Sherman. Fuller received a call from Sherman the day he got hired. Sherman, who runs a pro-style offense that utilizes true receivers, convinced Fuller to commit to the Aggies. When asked about his change of commitment, Fuller stated: "I felt bad switching, because I had made a commitment to [the Sooners]. But I wanted to be somewhere where I knew I'd be happy for four years. I definitely feel I made the right decision." Once A&M signed all of its recruits, Fuller became the Aggies' highest-ranked commitment in its 2008 class per Rivals.com.
Fuller graduated from high school a semester early to take part in A&M's spring practices.
During the 2010 season, he broke the Aggies' all-time record for touchdown catches. The record was previously held by Bob Long, who caught 19 touchdowns during his career from 1966–68. Fuller also became the second Aggie in school history to reach 2,000 receiving yards.
He received first-team All-Big 12 Honors for the 2010 season.
Fuller was added to the practice roster of the Calgary Stampeders on September 14, 2013 He played for the Stampeders for three years and was a member of the 102nd Grey Cup champions. He played in a total of 25 regular season games, recording 91 receptions for 1,251 yards and eight touchdowns.
