Graduate of University of Delaware.
Ellis had previously been committed to Duke, but he was granted a release from his letter of intent shortly after the Blue Devils got a commitment from Chosen 25 guard Cassius Stanley. Prior to committing to Duke, Memphis was in Ellis' top five with North Carolina, Memphis, USC and San Diego State.
Ellis is the sixth commitment for Memphis in the 2019 recruiting class (excluding Tucker, who is still testing the draft process.) He joins No. 1 overall recruit James Wiseman and a quartet of top-100 talents headlined by Memphis products Damion Bough and Malcom Dandrige. A high-level scorer, Ellis averaged 23.0 points and 5.0 rebounds for the Oakland Soldiers at July's Nike Peach Jam, shooting 57.5 percent from 3-point range over the seven games.
Tucker, who also entered his name into the National Basketball Association draft and has been working out for teams, is ranked No. 2 by ESPN in its graduate transfer rankings.
Memphis now has the No. 4 recruiting class in the nation, per 247Sports.
