Jaylen Ellis, a former Baylor receiver and recent WVU commit, announced earlier this evening that he will be decommitting from the Mountaineers only weeks after pledging to the school.
Thank you West Virginia.
But I will be decommitting.

Ellis, who was used sparingly by the Bears during his time in Waco, was considered to be a huge get for WVU. His speed was expected to be a huge asset for a Mountaineer offense lacking talent in the receivers room.
This is a huge blow for the Mountaineers. Expect Neal Brown and company to attempt to land another receiver from the portal following this news.
