There is no doubt that Wayne Ellington, the 6-foot-4, 190-pound shooting guard/small forward from Episcopal Academy in Merion Station, Pa., will be one of the most heavily recruited players in the class of 2006. Not only does the No. 23 ranked player in the class have an All-American smile, but Ellington’s game on the court is equally impressive.
“Things are pretty much the same as far as my recruitment goes. Skip Prosser from Wake Forest and Herb Sendek from NC State were recently here to watch me play,” Ellington said. “I have already taken an unofficial visit to Villanova and there is a chance that I might take several more unofficial visits.
“North Carolina is a school that I plan to unofficially visit,” he added. “I also plan to visit some other ACC schools, but I haven’t decided which schools to unofficially visit yet.”
Aside from the aforementioned programs, Ellington, the No. 4 ranked shooting guard in the class of 2006, is also receiving interest from the likes of Connecticut, Duke, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Kansas, Notre Dame, Arizona and St. Joseph’s.
“I would like to take all five official visits before making a decision on what school to attend,” Ellington said. “I guess it really depends on what school that I like the most. If I take one official visit and just love everything about the school, I might not need to take all five visits. That is a decision my family and I will make when the time is right.”
