From the moment he got his release, the rumors were he wanted to attend Michigan State. The Spartans have long had a presence in Chicago, and after making an official visit to the school, his signing was announced by the school on Wednesday.
Ellis, who is a 6-foot-4, is a high level athlete who is at his best going to the rim and finishing. Also Ellis is a high level defender who gives maximum effort on every possession.
This is the second signee for the Spartans in the class. He joins fellow late pledge Gavin Schilling.
