Quarterback

DriveFor25_shield-320pxCommits (2): Quincy Patterson, DeJuan Ellis

Projected Class: 2

Quincy Patterson was one of 12 quarterbacks to compete at The Opening in Oregon.  He drew praise for his size, his leadership ability, his arm strength (he threw one ball 76 yards), and his ability to go through reads.  One scout said that he might have the most long-term potential of any quarterback at The Opening.  That’s pretty solid praise.

Virginia Tech jumped on Patterson early, with Justin Fuente flying to Chicago to personally evaluate him and recruit him.  Since he began to blow up on the national stage, Patterson has received interest from Ohio State, Penn State and Oregon, and probably some others as well.  However, he remains solid to Virginia Tech, and we don’t expect that to change.
