Ellenson sees potential with Notre Dame
Rising junior power forward Henry Ellenson of Rice Lake (Wisc.) High is up to double-digit offers, but has yet to add the Irish to that list. However, he thinks that could soon change. "I talk with Coach Brey a lot," Ellenson said. "I probably talk with Notre Dame once a week. They are going to continue to watch me play this summer and this fall, and then take it from there." "I still don't have any favorites," Ellenson added. "A lot of schools are on me right now, and recruiting is definitely starting to pick up. There's not any in particular that are recruiting harder than others. Early playing time is something that is going to stand out for me when I'm choosing a school." Ellenson fits the role of stretch four, and at 6-foot-9, 250-pounds, he can knock down shots from a deep range, and he's smooth in transition. "Most schools like my versatility, including Notre Dame," Ellenson said. "They like my shooting ability as well as how I play under the basket. I'm hustle player and am very aggressive." Ellenson said should the Irish offer, that would propose something to think about. "If Notre Dame offered, I would consider them," Ellnson said. "It's a great school and they have a lot to offer me outside of basketball." Ellenson's brother plays for Minnesota.
