Gunning For #1: Chase Ellis Ready To Shine In The Spotlight!

Chase Ellis (Atlanta, GA)

Ellis is one of the most respectful and high character kids that you will ever meet. He is winner at life and has a bright future ahead of him, but do not for one second take his kindness for weakness because when he steps onto the hardwood he will slit your throat without a second thought. He attacks both boards with relentlessness and can finish in a crowd and through contact, also possessing a soft jump shot he plays within himself and is ultra-effective from 18-feet and in. With an improving handle he is dangerous whenever he touches the ball, always focused on winning he may give you 20 points one game and 10-asssit the next. Out of the Georgia the 6’4 forward could start for any team in the country due to how he plays the game. The competition yet must understand when Ellis arrive in Maryland for the Spotlight Future Phenom Camp, he has no plans of playing with anyone – this is a business trip and he plans on taking names and rising up the national board in the process. 

Equally strong as a back-to-the-basket player as he is facing up the offensive skill package is diverse and effective – very strong shooting with either hand and does well on the move showing excellent hands. We like what he does in transition and how he competes on the defensive end; coming to the Spotlight from Dirty South things could get murky for anyone trying to stop Ellis rise to the top.
