Just two days after publicly decommitting from Virginia Tech on Twitter, McDonogh (MD) quarterback DeJuan Ellis recommitted to the Hokie coaching staff.
After talking with my family and my VT coaches I'm staying home 🦃🦃🦃! I'm a Hokie ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️

Ellis did not publicly list the reason for his decommitment, but the Virginia Tech coaching staff is very high on him, and they are happy to have him back in the fold.
Most recruiting services view Ellis as a upper-level 3-star recruit, though ESPN ranks him as a 4-star prospect and the #9 player in the state of Maryland. He recently ran a 4.47 40 yard dash at Nike’s The Opening Regionals in Northern Virginia.
He and Quincy Patterson make two quarterback commitments for the class of 2018, and the Hokies are done recruiting that position this year barring any more decommitments.
