Since that time the interest from several big time programs has continued, while others have begun to fall behind, including the Blue Devils. Perhaps that's because the Duke coaching staff apparently seems to rate Illinois shooting guard Jon Scheyer as the top shooting guard priority along with Henderson as the top wing.
Ellington maintains that he has no leader at this point in this process. "Right now I'm wide open. I'm just concentrating on becoming a more complete player. I need to keep hitting the weights to work on my strength."
Despite being wide open, he does have an early list of high major suitors including Connecticut, Arizona, Duke, Syracuse, Kentucky, Villanova, North Carolina, Wake Forest, and Georgia Tech.
"Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, and Villanova are trying to set up visits right now, but it's early for me."
With so many high majors calling, Ellington isn't hurting for attention. However, he is wondering what's the deal with Duke.
"They still send me stuff, but not as much as others. I guess they are still recruiting me. We'll have to see what happens there."
