Four-star LB Aaron Willis has decommitted from Virginia Tech. The 2021 recruit out of Baltimore powerhouse St. Frances Academy tweeted Monday that his recruitment was "back open." https://twitter.com/44crzy/status/1122981764639744000?s=19 Primarily recruited by Bud Foster, Willis originally committed to Virginia Tech in September 2018. Since then, he has received offers from the likes of LSU, Texas A&M, Tennessee, and Alabama. There is no doubt that Willis is one of the top linebacker prospects in the 2021 class. 247 Sports lists him as the number 10 OLB in the country and the number 4 overall player from Maryland in his class. For that reason, it was a bit surprising that Willis committed so early in the first place. Judging by his offer list, the 6-foot, 200 pound LB holds interest for plenty of big time schools. As for Virginia Tech, the decommitment leaves their 2021 class with no current commits. However, that is not at all uncommon this early in the process.
