40 time: 4.68
From: Redondo Beach, California
High School: Redondo Union
In Redondo Union's first game in a 42-8 win, he had 12 rushes for 110 yards and three touchdowns. On defense, he had 12 tackles with three of them for loss. On special teams, he blocked and recovered a punt.
The SS/OLB prospect says he could care less which of the two positions he plays in college. He took an unofficial visit to USC for the Colorado State game. "Man, they put it on Colorado State," said Ellison. "I left at halftime because I had seen enough. They were beating them so bad. I had already gone onto the field before the game and into the locker rooms."
He has the Trojans in his top six with the Cats, Oregon State, Washington, Oregon, and Oklahoma. "I have offers from Arizona, Oregon, Oregon State, and Washington. I don't really have a favorite. I have heard from all of those schools on the phone in the past two weeks, plus Duke and Colorado."
Coach Tui is recruiting him for the Wildcats and Ellison feels he could help the program. "Arizona is an up-and-coming place. I like what Stoops is trying to do there. I think I could go in there and help them build."
He has scheduled his first visit which will be to Oregon State, October 2nd. His parents do not claim a preference on where he goes to school.
Ellison carries a 3.0 core GPA and scored a 1020 on his SAT. Redondo Union takes on Santa Fe Springs St. Paul this Friday.
