Virginia Tech picked up another commitment for their Class of 2018 on Monday in quarterback Quincy Patterson.

Patterson is a 3-star recruit out of Chicago’s Solorio Academy. He’s listed at 6-foot-4 and 232-pounds, and is ranked the 18th-best dual-threat quarterback in the country by the 247Sports Composite. He’s also rated as the 10th-best player in Illinois.

Patterson holds 20 reported scholarship offers, some of which are from Power 5 programs. North Carolina, Illinois, Iowa, Mississippi State, NC State and Penn State were some of his more notable offers.

Justin Fuente loves big, mobile quarterbacks and Patterson fits that mold to a tee. Just watch some of his highlight film.

Patterson has tons of experience running the football and shows good arm talent as well. He will need a redshirt season, as most quarterbacks do, to learn the offense and to become a more polished passer. However, he looks a lot like Jerod Evans, and we know how that turned out for both sides.

Virginia Tech now has two commitments at quarterback for the Class of 2018. DeJuan Ellis has been committed for some time, though there is a chance Ellis could play somewhere other than quarterback once he arrives in Blacksburg.  For now, however, the plan is to keep Ellis at quarterback when he first arrives on campus. The Hokies have been recruiting other quarterbacks, most notably Dakereon Joyner, but are likely done at quarterback for this class.

Patterson is the fifth commitment for Virginia Tech so far in the Class of 2018. He joins Ellis, Chamarri Conner, Bryce Thompson and Nasir Peoples, who committed on Feb. 22.

  1. Coach and Corny are filling the QB pipeline up! We are recruiting QBs the way the big boys do. They may not be 5* in high school but our coaches are identifying who they need early and going after them aggressively. That first Sean with a future NFL starter slinging the ball around and running over and around defenders was just what our offense recruiting needed.

  2. Our recruiting has really changed for the good. We are casting a much wider net and it is clear that QBs want to play in the Fuente system. Any concerns about Fuente and the staff’s ability to recruit should be a thing of the past. I am convinced that our future is very bright.
