DeJuan Ellis opens his recruitment

He's been one of the longest-standing commits in Virginia Tech's 2018 class, but Owings Mills (Md.) McDonogh quarterback DeJuan Ellis no longer holds that status: he's not longer a Hokie pledge.

The 5-10, 150-pound Ellis is a hyper-accurate passer of the ball, but missing parts of his junior season due to injury - and winning the fastest-man competition at a regional camp earlier this Spring - are among the factors that caused him to open up his recruitment. The No. 26 player in the state of Maryland's 2018 class is a three-star prospect, and still considering the Hokies.
