Dvon Ellies is a 6-foot-1 and 292 pound redshirt freshman from Burtonsville, Maryland. He had offers from Florida and Ohio State, as well as his in-state Big Ten school Maryland, but he chose Happy Valley instead.
Ellies played in one game last year but retains four years of eligibility. He will be considered a depth player for a couple of years and there’s nothing wrong with that. The Lions have plenty of starter-level talent at defensive tackle for the foreseeable future.
He was born in Hawaii and his full first name is Dvonesquire.
