As for Ellis ?
Some talented kids have the ability to excel at the next level after HS BB. Some do not, they hit a rut, after not playing against elite competition in HS, getting lazy within their game thinking they are already good enough for college to find they are lacking the mind set as much as skill set.
The good part is , they are talented enough and can be taught the next level if they are interested in doing so. Their attitude makes the difference in getting to the next level of competition.
