Perry Ellis Picks Kansas


Kansans have heard his name since he was in 8th grade, and now it's official: Perry Ellis will stay home (so to speak) and become a Jayhawk. The Wichita native picked Kansas over Wichita State, Kentucky and Kansas State.

I went over his credentials in the earlier post, but Ellis looks like a guy who will come in perhaps a bit raw but will develop under Danny Manning. I haven't seen him play other than YouTube highlights (and you can't tell much from there) but based off what I have read about him he seems like a hybrid between the Morris brothers, with the ability to run the floor very well, great hands, and a nice mid range game. His biggest deficiencies right now seem to be in ball handling and overall strength, but both can be easily improved.

Ellis is the second 2012 commit who will play in the front court, as he joins Plano native Zach Peters, the 40th ranked power forward. If Kaleb Tarczewski, the #1 ranked center who is down to Kansas and Arizona, comes to Lawrence the Jayhawks could have one of the best front courts in the country in the coming years.
