DeJuan Ellis, a 4-star quarterback prospect from Owings Mills, Maryland, announced Tuesday he is re-opening his recruiting process after verbally committing to the Virginia Tech Hokies in August 2016.  

Ellis made the move official in a post on Twitter: 

A dual-threat prospect, Ellis has long been considered one of the more compelling signal-callers among 2018 recruits. 

According to Scout, Ellis is the 18th-ranked quarterback and 232nd-ranked player overall in his class. Furthermore, Ellis is the second-ranked quarterback in the entire East Region and the No. 1 overall player at his position in the state of Maryland. 

Soon to be a rising senior, Ellis will look to build on a junior campaign that saw him throw for 14 touchdowns, rush 16 touchdowns and post more than 1,000 yards on the ground and through the air: 

Ellis will also have to reconsider where he'll continue his football journey now that he's re-opened his recruitment. 

Prior to making a verbal commitment to the Hokies, Ellis received offers from a handful of schools including Illinois, Maryland, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, Toledo and Wake Forest.
