Serving as a back-up to Brodrick Bunkley, he finished the year with six tackles, including one for loss, and two pass breakups. Against both Miami (FL) and Duke he recorded two tackles each. In his sophomore season, Fluellen replaced Travis Johnson at defensive tackle. Recording 26 tackles on the year, he ranked second on the team behind Bunkley for most tackles by a defensive lineman. Fluellen also had 7.5 tackles for loss, and tied for third on the team in quarterback hurries with twelve. Season-highs in both tackles (eight) and tackles for loss (two) he recorded against North Carolina State.

As a junior, Fluellen faced the task of replacing Bunkley at the nose guard position, named one of the “ten toughest vacancies” in college football. Bunkley's original successor, junior college transfer Paul Griffin, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first quarter against Troy, the second game of the season. Fluellen was moved to his position, and started at nose guard for the remaineder of the season. He finished seventh on the team in tackles, and first among all defensive lineman, in tackles with a career-high 28 stops. Fluellen also had eight tackles for minus yardage (fourth on the team).

He was named to several preseason All-American and All-Atlantic Coast Conference teams, but managed to start only five games, missing three entire contests due to a left elbow hyperextension. He ended the season with 21 tackles (10 solos), including two sacks, one pressure and a pair of pass deflections.
