"I felt like Central Arkansas was the right school for me," Ellington said. "What they do offensively is a good fit for me and what I do. My coaches thought I fit well in this program and when I went on the visit, I loved everything I saw. UCA is a nice place!"
In addition to his offer from the Bears, Ellington has also been in contact with Troy and while he's open to listening to other programs, he said he feels very good about his decision.
As a freshman last season, Ellington backed up Kansas-bound signal-caller Peyton Bender, but he still managed to finish the season 58 of 87 for 765 yards with eight, 8 touchdowns, one interception while rushing for 406 yards and a team-leading seven touchdowns on the ground.
Ellington is set to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the completion of the 2017 football season.
