The Fuller brothers all played at Virginia Tech and then the NFL. Older brother Vincent, then Kyle and Kendall were all Defensive Backs for the Hokies. Vincent was a 4th round NFL Draft pick by the Tennessee Titans as a Safety. Kyle played a position that usually goes higher than the Safeties, Cornerback. The great Cornerbacks often go in the first round of the draft and Kyle was a 1st round pick at number 14 by the Chicago Bears.
Brother Kendall was also a Cornerback and one of the very best in the country at Virginia Tech. He injured his knee against Purdue in 2015 and after the season was over he announced for the NFL Draft. People that think that was smart are that would flunk any business class. The yearly salaries are much more for a 1st round draft pick and the signing bonuses are huge. If Kendall had returned to Virginia Tech for the 2016 season and play like he did in 2014 and the beginning of 2015, then he moves into a 1st round pick and he would be rich. Instead, he was picked in the 3rd round of the 2016 draft by Washington. He should have a good career, but he missed out on the really big money. Talking to NFL fans about this subject is futile and frustrating.
The Kendall brothers, from Baltimore, Maryland, were not the only set of brothers to play for the
There was also the Edmunds brothers. The sons of former Maryland and Miami Dolphins Tight End, Ferrell Edmonds, older son Trey signed with the Virginia Tech Hokies instead of his father’s school. Things never really worked out in football for Trey at Virginia Tech, but he did get his degree. Father Ferrell was 6-6, 255 when he played and Trey is about 6-2, 225. Trey’s best season at Virginia Tech was actually his freshman season of 2013 when he ran for 675 yards and 10 Touchdowns. He had redshirted as a true freshman in 2012.
He only played in 7 games as a sophomore in the 2014 season and he only ran for 97 yards. The 2015 season was not good, either, with only 185 rushing yards and 3 Touchdowns.
Trey decided to transfer for his last season and since he was a graduate, he could play anywhere that would accept him.
He wound up at Maryland this year and things aren’t going much better with 158 rushing yards and a single Touchdown.
Trey’s younger brother Terrell is a 6-2, 210 Defensive Back for the Hokies. He actually plays a Rover back which is something of a Linebacker/Safety combination. Terrell redshirted his first season and then played very well in the 2015 season.
Terrell is playing very well in the 2016 season and he’s ranked 4th on the team in total tackles with 37 and he has 3 Interceptions on the season, so far. He generally seems to be close to the ball on most plays.
In the class behind Terrell is another brother, Tremaine.
Now, this kid is special.
Tremaine Edmunds is more like their father, physically. He is 6-5, 235 and he can run. At Outside Linebacker for the Hokies, Tremaine is a play maker.
He had a really good game on Thursday night against the Miami Hurricanes and he was all over Canes Quarterback Brad Kaaya.
He finished the night with 10 tackles, with 2 tackles for loss and a Quarterback sack. He also hurried Brad Kaaya on another occasion.
It was kind of the Edmund brothers show against Miami as Terrell had 1 Interception and 7 total Tackles.
Tremain Edmunds with his size and speed is super impressive and he should have a bright future at Virginia Tech and beyond.
Not only do the brothers have an athletic father, but their mother was a track star at Southern Illinois. That might be where the speed comes from.
Tremaine Edmunds is the most impressive Linebacker I have seen so far this season. Not only is he very productive, he is also the ideal size and speed combination. He’s very aggressive and seems to possess instincts.
While watching the Hokies beat the Miami Hurricanes there were other impressive players on the Virginia Tech defense. Defensive Tackle Woody Baron looked outstanding and he had 4 and a half tackles for loss and 2 Quarterback sacks. Linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka and Cornerback Adonis Alexander are also probable special players on this defense. Motuapuaka is the leading tackler and Alexander was a Linebacker, or the Rover last season and now is a 6-3, 195 Cornerback.
The Edmunds family could have used a couple of more boys.
