Virginia Tech Football Recruiting: DeJuan Ellis Recommits to the Hokies

A speedy quarterback / athlete returns to the fold.

The Hokies received some unexpected news on Tuesday evening, quarterback DeJuan Ellis de-committed from Virginia Tech's 2018 recruiting class. He was intent to pursue offers as athlete after he blazed up the turf and earned fastest man honors at The D.C. Opening regional. However, a mere two days later, the 5-11, 160 pound, 3-star McDonogh School product turned 180° and re-pledged to Tech.

Ellis originally committed to the Hokies last August.

Big grins in the French household this evening.

Really makes me think of your favorite movie:

I'm sorry, I have 2 questions:
1. Why isn't this green yet?
2. Why has it taken me so long to see this gif?

Go Hokies

It's okay, brother. Hulkamania is runnin' wild.

I take it you like this kid?

Ellis is back with the good guys?

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Well I guess we don't need to fire Fuente anymore. Oh and you guys can resume giving to the Hokie Club.

Sometimes I like to leave off the /s just to mess with people.

And also, TKPers Club?

Go Hokies

this. so much this.

I thought these coaches couldn't recruit. /s

That crap drives me nuts. One kid is trying to figure out what is best for him. Maybe he should have thought about it more and talked to the VT staff instead of decommiting and recommitting, but this staff is doing a great job.

Fuente and co. are getting guys that fit their system and adding big recruits like Hunter, Rivers, Garbutt, etc.

It'll be interesting to see if he ends up on offense, but could you imagine Kumah, Patterson, Pimp, Farley, and Keene with Hooker at QB in a couple of years?

If we can close on Tre Turner, Dax Hollifield, James Mitchell, Dillon Spalding, DJ Crossen, and Armani Chatman then this could be a special class.

the ending is strong, the beginning, well....

Earlier today my UVA buddy was giving me shit when I told him we're still the leader to nab Ellis.

My reaction now....

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I love how a uva fan can talk trash when they don't even have a horse in the race. Typical.

Horse in the race? UVA doesn't even have one of these:

Friends don't let friends go to LOLUVA

UVA has a horse. Jockey, not so much.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

never gets old

Little known fact...that horse is a Hokie.

He was just trying to get that blue piece of shit off his back...and the blanket.

We put the K in Kwality

Conversation with a LOLUVA co-worker this week:

Him: Do you think you'll ever stop giving us crap for things like Cavman falling off the horse, or London's time mismanagement skills?

Me: Depends...are you guy going to stop doing dumb sh!t?

We put the K in Kwality

Is the correct answer NO to both? I was bad with tests.

Your test taking skills seem to be improving.

Speedster takes a jet sweep as defense crashes the line in a panic only to pull up and throw it deep to a wide open pimp!

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

I'm dreaming of plays like this. His speed is ridiculous, but he can really spin it. Some of the most jaw-dropping plays on his tape are deep balls.

I'd be really surprised if he becomes a QB - but the jet sweep RPO was invented for this kid.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Thank God the Eagles signed Evans...

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

I can't believe it, I thought I was the first to beat everyone with a good post. I will never be self deceived up here again. This has ruined my night!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I mean I've seen teams suck before, but that was the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

Taylor... looking desperately...now throws it DEEP..HAS A MAN OPEN! CAUGHT! DANNY COALE! ALL THE WAY! OUT OF BOUNDS, at the three...

Wait a 17 year old changed his mind again?! Shocked face

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

I don't know what on Earth JJ is doing, but Thelma sure can dance.

I think JJ is having good times.

Hell yes. I have to give credit to the staff, as I assume they sold the program to Ellis all over again once he decommitted. I'm so excited for the future you guys

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

Good news, but given the de-commit and re-commit within like a 3 day span...I'll hold my excitement until the LOI is in.

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

So great to have an athlete like this on the team.

Also a good look getting him to recommit so quickly.

That brings Fuente to 3 re-commits in less than two years of recruiting at Tech (Patterson, Garbutt, Ellis) unless anyone can think of more.

Why can't he be an athlete for the Hokies? Fuente knows what to do with offensive weapons. Welcome back home Ellis.

Put your commitment in
Take your commitment out
Put your commitment in
and you shake it all about

This team is going to have speed for days.

Can we create a stat for Average Team Speed to prove this?

The scientist in me is hurting looking at that.

Oooooh! oooooh! I know! It's a GC spike for Mercury aka quick silver

Hey, I just hope this is game speed we're talking about, and not some exaggerated, timed speed from our 40 course set along the downhill slopes of Brush Mountain.

If ever there was an event that epitomizes college football recruiting, this is it.

This must be some kind of new record.

I'm glad he's back, and I hope it's for good this time!

That picture used is the perfect face for someone that just decommitted and then recommitted in the span of a few days lol. Glad to have him back!


He is just practicing his Moriarty looks?
