Kansas Extends Offer

Jones County Junior College is home to one of the top defenders in the junior college ranks. Ellis Lankster has offers from Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, West Virginia and others. The talented defensive back recently added another tender to his growing list.

"Kansas has now offered," said Ellis. "They had been calling me some and they decided to go ahead and offer."

Lankster has already set up one official visit and he will be setting up more in the near future.

"I am going to Memphis on December the 8th," reported Lankster. "I am looking at visiting West Virginia, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. I am not sure about what other schools I may visit. I have talked with coaches from those schools, but I don't have any dates set up."

Ellis is being pursued by several schools, but a few appear to be a bit more serious about working for Lankster's signature.

"I have been getting some calls from LSU and Southern Miss. Mississippi State and Memphis call me pretty much every week, but West Virginia and Ole Miss are recruiting me the hardest," said Ellis. "They send me a lot of text messages. They text me after my games and tell me 'Good game' and things like that. I feel like they are rooting for me."
