JUCO: El Ellis talks his recruitment, early season success

When you discuss the JUCO ranks nowadays you hear the names like Jay Scrubb, Khadir Calhoun, and the other current Division one prospects that were in the JUCO ranks over the past few years.

Tallahassee Community College’s El Ellis is in his first year after opting to go the JUCO route and oh has it been effective for one of the top prospects in the Junior College ranks.

Ellis has quickly become one of the best shooters in the entire country. He’s TCC’s leading scorer shooting at a hot 49% clip from the field, beyond that he’s shooting 43-99 from three and shooting 43%.

“I’m a fast pace point guard that will do anything to help my team win. I can score at all three levels, I get my teammates involved and I’m a leader,” he told Stockrisers.com

With having still another year after this season of JUCO play, Ellis is in no rush when it comes to his recruitment. He already holds offers from Texas A&M, Ole Miss, DePaul, East Carolina, and many others.

In addition, he’s garnered recent interest from several high-major programs and I expect that to expand as the season and summer flows on.

“I’m hearing from New Mexico, Tulsa, UCF, Temple, MTSU, Penn State, LSU, Nebraska,” he said. I expect him to hold off on visits for the next few months as he’s working on having a good rest of the season.
