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.
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.
