Kenrick Ellis, 6-foot-5 and 330 pounds, has been spending some time training with the basketball team to get in shape.
"I'm working out with them almost every day," he said. "We're running and I've been lifting and stuff."
On the recruiting front, Ellis is still being recruited by a number of programs. He has two official visits set up.
The talented defensive tackle prospect said he has a pretty good idea who his final two visits will be to.
"My five visits will probably be Tennessee, Rutgers, South Carolina, Michigan State, and Michigan," he said. "I was hoping to hear from Miami about
a visit but they kinda shut me off. I asked Coach Cristobal what's up and why
they never offered. He said they need more film and wanted to evaluate me better.
I was like 'forget it, I'm done'. I havent heard from them in a few weeks."
