One of the biggest freshman to step onto the court this season for the Jayhawks is Perry Ellis. Ellis committed in the fall of 2011.
In their first exhibition game, Perry Ellis had 15 points, seven rebounds, and one steal in 16 minutes while having 10 points, five rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in the team’s second exhibition game.
How will Perry Ellis perform this season and what will he contribute to the Jayhawks?
George: Perry Ellis is the next in line of great power forwards for Kansas. Losing Thomas Robinson hurts, but Ellis has the ability to step right in and take over.
Ricky: Perry Ellis will be a staple for the Kansas Jayhawks this year. I believe the “Big 3″ is Kansas are Withey, Johnson, and Ellis. Bill Self recruited him as a freshman in high school and compared his game to KU great Wayne Simien. Ellis will make the crowd go wild with the “Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk.”
