On July 24, McDonough (Md.) 2018 four-star quarterback DeJuan Ellis competed in Virginia Tech's final recruit camp of the summer. He didn't have to, as he'd had a Hokies offer for months. But Ellis wanted to get a better feel for offensive coordinator Brad Cornelsen.
It turns out, Ellis got a very good feel.
On Wednesday afternoon, Ellis announced his commitment to the Hokies. He's Virginia Tech's second for 2018, joining Ben Lippen (SC) athlete Bryce Thompson.
Ellis, a recent transfer from Bishop O'Connell (Va.), is ranked No. 218 in the Scout300 for 2018. He's also listed as the No. 20 quarterback overall and the top-ranked quarterback in the state for the class.
Ellis also had offers from Maryland, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple and Wake Forest. Cornelsen was his primary recruiter.
