Alvin Ellis Talks Michigan State Visit
Published on Monday, 15 April 2013 11:26 Written by Cavan Walsh
Alvin Ellis is one of the hottest 2013 prospects in the country following his decision to decommit from Minnesota. Ellis took an unofficial visit to Michigan State over the weekend and he winds his way back through the recruiting process.
We caught up with Ellis to get a breakdown of the visit.
Talk about your unofficial visit to Michigan State on Friday?
"The visit to Michigan State on Friday was really nice. I got a chance to talk with the coaches and workout with the team. I felt like I could fit right in with the coaches, players, and support staff. Also, I had a tour around campus it was nice and big. I got a chance to talk to the coaches and they were straight up with me. I feel like they could be able to push me to get to the next level."
Talk about receiving a scholarship offer from MSU and what it means?
"It means a lot especially coming from Coach Izzo. Just sitting down talking to him that's big time, but it's definitely an honor."
Do you have a timetable on when you want to make a decision?
"As of now I have no timetable right now, I just want to make sure whatever school I choose that it is the right fit."
It moved a little.
I will admit, the fact that he's sounding more and more like Kearney is perking my ears up a little. A defense first role player off the bench with a bit of size is one of the things that next year's roster is going to need. If he commits I hope he's good enough and ready to play as a true frosh.
Now, Ellis is no physical freak, nor will he light up the scoreboard for the Spartans as a freshman. However, he defends with a great defensive base, has quick hands, great eye for passing lanes, and attacks the rim. Izzo is notorious for recruiting players who defend early and have potential to grow offensively later in their career. Ellis does just that. He possesses a smooth jump shot that ranges to the three point line but struggles on his shot with long defenders. With a lack of depth behind starting guard Gary Harris, Izzo may look to add that depth through the 3-star recruit.
