Fuller enjoyed a breakout performance against Maryland on Feb. 19, coming off the bench to set season highs in both points (12) and rebounds (five) in 26 minutes of work.

Before Nebraska
Fuller enjoyed a storied high school career playing for Coach Jeff Boos at Sun Prairie High School. Fuller was a four-year starter and set the Big Eight Conference scoring record with 1,940 points, shattering the previous mark of 1,669 points by Jeronne Maymon, who played at Marquette and Tennessee. Fuller had a pair of 40-point games and scored 30 or more points 15 times during his high school career. He was a two-time Wisconsin State Journal All-Area Boys Basketball Player of the Year and two-time Big Eight Conference Player of the Year. He also grabbed 693 rebounds from his forward spot.

Fuller was rated by 247Sports as one of the top 150 players in the country and was a consensus three-star recruit by Rivals.com, Scout.com, ESPN and 247Sports.com. He was listed by ESPN as the 21st-best small forward in the country in the class of 2013.

A finalist for Mr. Basketball in Wisconsin in 2012-13, Fuller averaged 25.0 points and 11.2 rebounds per game in leading Sun Prairie to a 20-4 record and the Cardinals' first conference title in 37 years. A second-team all-state selection, he was part of a talent-rich 2013 senior class which sent nearly 20 players to the Division I ranks. He was a two-time D1 all-state selection by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association and a three-time all-state honoree by the Associated Press.

He earned Big Eight Conference Player of the Year and Wisconsin State Journal Area Player of the Year for the first time as a junior, when he averaged 23.5 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in helping Sun Prairie to a 17-8 record and a berth in the 2012 Division I sectional semifinals. He totaled 40 points in a win over Madison West to help Sun Prairie earn a runner-up conference finish. A three-time all-conference pick and three-time all-state honoree, Fuller averaged 18.5 points per game as a sophomore and helped Sun Prairie to a 19-6 record and a sectional final runner-up. In the summers, he played for the Wisconsin Swing AAU program directed by Justin Litscher.

He also performed well in the classroom during his career at Sun Prairie, carrying a 3.5 GPA and making the honor roll all four years at the school. Fuller selected Nebraska over Minnesota and a host of schools, including Marquette, Butler, Colorado and Creighton.
