This kid just oozes potential.
There's no way he'll redshirt. MSU needed another wing coming off the bench for next year. Ellis fits the bill.
Long, smooth, could potentially become a great player if he puts in the work.
Next year's team with a Kearney like and Kearney sized defensive stalwart coming off the bench, that makes them that much more dangerous. I'm liking the move more and more the more I think about it.
An average athlete vertically speaking but his shot looks promising (way more so than BK's) and his size, length and instincts on D are going to be just what Izzo needs against off the bench against the elite teams.
I hope he's ready for the challenge because there absolutely is a role on this team for him as a true frosh.

Byrd would have to improve and be playing out of his mind for AE to redshirt. There is about a 1% chance of AE redshirting.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
He could use the extra year. He really doesn't have much muscle built up right now. He could be really good later in his college career.
I agree, we need another wing, but Ellis could use that extra year, although his three point shooting would help out.
Can he play defense??
Cause if he can't Izzo ain't gonna play him much

Which one are you??
I've heard he's a pretty good defender. Seems to fit the Izzo mold in that regard.
Yep, esp. if Byrd doesn't get any better.. we'll need a wing to spell Harris/Valentine
And hell, if the dude can shoot and play decent defense.. play him
He'll probably get around ten mins per game. But I think he might already be better than Byrd.
If he's getting 10min a game, then he's a pretty good player.
Considering the depth we have at G is pretty good for next year- Appling, harris, Trice, Valentine.. if Ellis comes in as a true frosh and can give us 10 quality minutes, I'd be very very excited
No. We have 1 more...
Don't see us using the other when we could have a huge recruiting class in 2014.
The moment is eternal
Strange seeing MSU add 2 kids Illinois passed on in Schilling and Ellis. Of course it was Weber who passed on them, so maybe that bodes well for you....
Actually I was going to look into that and Make a topic so everyone would be on the same page. I think Izzo might be more apt to use it given the Parker situation this year but if we are confident about a lot of the guys then I could see us saving it for sure. It's really a guessing game with Jones and Okafur. Alexander and 1 of Looney or the other prospects I would think is a pretty solid guess on probably what we will get. ( besides looking into Jones and Okafur) Jones has always been extremely high on Duke, but MSU has been up there as well but I havent heard its at Duke level for him. It's really a shame I think he would thrive in our system.
duke got a 5 star SG for 2014 today
