Ellenson commits to Marquette
Steve Wojciechowski and his staff at Marquette reeled in their biggest recruit to date, as Henry Ellenson, Scout.com's No. 6 ranked recruit, committed to Marquette on Thursday. Multiple sources confirmed the news to Scout.com.
Ellenson picked Marquette over Kentucky and Michigan State. He took an official visit to Michigan State and had one scheduled to Kentucky.
An elite recruit, Ellenson, a 6-foot-10 power forward, is versatile. His offensive ability allows him to face the rim and attack or shoot jump shots, but where he's at his best is in the paint and scoring around the rim, as he has great hands and touch.
Ellenson joins a stellar recruiting class that also consists of Matt Heldt (No. 57), Haanif Cheatham (No. 81) and Nick Noskowiak (No. 90). With the addition of Ellenson Marquette has the No. 3 recruiting class in the country.
Ellenson's brother -- Wally -- transferred from Minnesota to Marquette over the summer. Ellenson told Scout.com this past weekend that having him there was a major bonus for them.
“It helps," he said. It’s another bonus for sure. It’s nice because you get the insight he has. You get to hear what he has to say. If they are saying something you can see if it’s true. It’s really helpful.”
