Ellington Dominates Again

Wayne Ellington, the No. 16 player in the class of 2006, continues to dominate the AAU scene with the Playaz Gold.

Wayne Ellington, a terrific 6-3, 175-pound shooting guard from The Episcopal Academy in Merion, Penn., continued to show why he is a top ten player in the 2006 class. Ellington consistently scored this past weekend for Jimmy Salmon's AAU team, the Playaz Gold, at the Sonny Hill tournament in Philadelphia.

Ellington has a sweet touch from the perimeter. He is able to shake defenders with his movement away from the ball as well as with his handle. He is also athletic enough to pick up loose balls inside the paint and score on big people.

"I want to get into the weight room and work on my strength," Ellington said. "I want to become a complete player."

Ellington continues to say he doesn't have a leader in his recruiting process. "I am wide open," he said.

But Ellington has indicated he is interested in the high major programs. Among them: Connecticut, Arizona, Duke, Syracuse, Kentucky, Villanova, St. Joe's, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Arizona. "There are schools that are trying to get me in for unofficial visits," Ellington said. "Georgia Tech, Villanova, and Wake Forest have been trying recently."

Wayne said he is unsure whether he will actually take any unofficial visits in the Fall. "It's early for me," he said. "I just want to enjoy some time in the summer before school starts again."
