Ellis played for Florida Southwestern State College, which is a junior college, for the past two seasons. He is ranked as the third-best overall JUCO prospect in the country by 247 Sports and the best combo guard.
Alabama has three players — Kira Lewis, John Petty and Herb Jones — who have entered the NBA Draft but could return to school. Head coach Nate Oats is entering his second season with the team following talk that he is unhappy with Tuscaloosa, but he appears to be committed to the program. Landing Ellis will give his latest recruiting class a big boost.
