After slimming down, getting quicker and more athletic, and growing a little bit, Ellenson feels that his junior high school year was a success.
"It was a great season, the best one I have had. It was a lot of fun, and I think I did a great job this year," said Ellenson. "All of my teammates also played well, it was a fun year."
Recruiting wise Ellenson has a long list of schools showing him significant attention.
He continued, "I took a visit to Northwestern and also I took a visit to Wisconsin."
The Wisconsin Badgers have traditionally done an excellent job of keeping the top in-state talent home, and Ellenson enjoyed his visit to Madison.
"The trip to Wisconsin was good," said Ellenson. "They had a big win against Michigan State, and it was good to get down there and see the crowd. I hadn't been down there for a long time, so it was good to see the game."
Also first year Head Coach Chris Collins at Northwestern has done a good job of building a relationship with Ellenson.
"It is a really nice coaching staff," said Ellenson of Northwestern. "It was good to talk to those guys and it was a good time down there. I really enjoyed myself."
For now Ellenson is in no hurry to make any kind of decision, and says that he would like to make visits in the fall before issuing a commitment.
