Virginia Tech lost its highest commitment of the 2018 class when quarterback Dejuan Ellis reopened his recruiting process on Tuesday.

Ellis is rated a four-star and ranked the No. 12 player in Maryland.  According to Ellis’ tweet, he will continue his recruiting as an athlete instead of a quarterback.

Ellis started his high school career playing two seasons with Bishop O’Connell in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference. Ellis transferred to McDonogh, where he had a solid 2016 season.

Ellis recorded the fastest 40-yard dash time (4.47) during the Fastest Man challenge at the Opening.

Ellis holds offers from Maryland, Illinois, Temple, Syracuse, Rutgers, Wake Forest and Toledo. He is still considering Virginia Tech as one of his top schools.
