Along with the help of other top 2006 prospect Gerald Henderson, Wayne Ellington led Episcopal Academy in Merion Station, Pa., to a 25-3 record while averaging 21 points per game. A 6-foot-4, 190-pound combo guard, Ellington is presently the No. 23 ranked player in the class of 2006, but look for a rapid rise up the rankings by Ellington. Presently, he is naming eight schools.
"I like Villanova, Connecticut, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Kansas, North Carolina State, Arizona and Georgia Tech," said Ellington. "All of them have offered, and I don't have a leader at this point. I should know more after I take some visits this spring."
Although Ellington did not comment on whom he would visit this spring, he has already taken two unofficial visits this year.
"I've been on unofficial visits to Villanova and North Carolina and enjoyed both of them," he said. "Both visits were great experiences."
Long, athletic, versatile and skilled, Ellington is a do everything guard with his eye set on playing the point guard position as well as the off guard. Set to play again for the Playaz AAU basketball club, Ellington has a chance to separate himself as the top guard prospect in the class of 2006.
As good as Ellington is on the court, he is also a very good student with a 3.0 GPA. Academics will play an important role in what school he chooses to attend.
"I'm looking for a good academic institution," he said. "I just want to go to a place that has a good coaching staff, good school and a comfortable environment."
