No. 4 - Perry Ellis, 75.7%, 2012-2016

Opponents often lament that they felt like Perry Ellis played for KU for way more than four years. There is a reason for that - he was a solid all-around player who won a lot of games at Kansas. The Jayhawks won 116 games during his career and appeared in a National Championship game.

Ellis, a second-team All-American, scored 1,798 points, and averaged 5.8 rebounds over his career. He started 109 games at Kansas and was part of four regular season Big 12 championships.

As a free throw shooter, he was prolific and accurate. Outside of his freshman year, when he had 99 attempts, he shot over 150 attempts each year. His best season was his senior year, when he 139 of his 177 from the free throw line, good for 78.5 percent. Like Manning, he was a consistent shooter from the charity stripe, never making less than 73 percent of this free throws.

Ellis' teams had a lot of success and he was a big part of that, as he was one of the top players, especially his last three. He will always be remembered fondly by KU fans, and loathed by opposing fans - a mark of a great Jayhawk.
