The Virginia Tech Hokies take the field at Lane Stadium on Saturday for the second time in five days. They'll be huge favorites on Hall of Fame day in Blacksburg.
Wide receiver Corey Fuller had a few hall of fame moments Monday night against Georgia Tech. Fuller, who only had two catches in his career, came up with five receptions for 82 yards in the win, including two huge ones in the final drive to force overtime.
Not bad for the third of four brothers to play for the Hokies. Corey started his college career as a track star at Kansas.
“He's pretty much a fast guy but I think he's really developed his skills to where an NFL scout asked me about him the other day,” Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. “That's kind of where he's gotten himself to, and now he's a fast guy that is a really good wide receiver -- the routes and how to get his body position and the things that he's really improved on.”
Corey Fuller said “Honestly, I knew I had it in me and I just had to step up. DJ (Coles) and Marcus (Davis) went down and I just had to step up and make plays.”
The youngest Fuller, Kendall, has committed to the Hokies’ class of 2013.
According to Rivals.com he is the top cornerback in the country, and the No. 3 player overall.
