Most schools are recruiting Ellis on the defensive side of the ball. Early on, Ellis has three offers from ACC & SEC schools. "I have scholarships from Duke, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest," he noted. "I'm getting interest from Alabama, Clemson, and Florida State."
This past year, Ellis has visited Georgia, Clemson, and Wake Forest for unofficial visits. While he has no further unofficial visits at this time, he does plan on working out and going to camps at several schools this summer. "I know I'm going to Clemson and Florida State," he noted. "I'm going up to workout with my brother for a week at Wake Forest too."
Ellis, who amassed 63 tackles on defense as a junior while carrying the ball 85 times for 700+ yards, visited Wake Forest for their spring game this year. "When I went, I got to meet all the coaches and I liked the coaches. They made me fit right in. My brother plays there so that makes it easier . When I went they had the spring game and the crowd turnout there was impressive."
Ellis plans on making camp visits this summer and going through the recruiting process for a few more months. "I just want to go through the summer and a few camps and a few visits. I'll probably make my decision at the end of summer or the beginning of my season."
