In his decorated career as a Volunteer, Fulkerson has 875 points and is 11 games away from breaking UT's all-time record for most games played. 

The 6'9" Kingsport native will enter the 2021-2022 season coming off a 2020-2021 campaign in which he led his team in field-goal percentage with .527 and was second in rebounds per game with 5.5.

The All-SEC honors are not the only preseason honor Fulkerson has had either, as 'Fulky' was named to the Karl Malone Preseason Watch List just five days ago.
