Each and every time Phenom Hoops gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Eli Ellis
Committed to: South Carolina
What Has Been Said:
“While many prospects are capable of playing up a level or two, it seems like Eli Ellis has been playing up numerous age groups for quite a while. It would be shocking if anyone was uninformed about the tough, shot-making guard, given how popular he and Moravian Prep have been over the recent memory. Regardless, Ellis is a lethal shooting threat with vision, deep range, and ability off the bounce. He’s able to attack the basket, create for himself and others, and pose problems with or without the ball in his hands. Ellis is a clear focal point for the Lions, and should only continue turning heads with his nonstop production.”
“It was great to see Ellis back and he certainly hasn’t missed a step with his game and his overall impact. Ellis looks bigger and stronger, but his game continues to speak for itself. He is a guard that just has a tremendous feel in being able to create, embrace contact, find ways to score around defenders, and can hurt you in so many ways. It is always a joy to watch him in action, as he led the charge on Day 1.”
“Eli has proven himself to be one of the best players in the country. He is a player you would want to go to battle with. Eli is extremely skilled and has a great frame at the PG position. He has the ability to create for himself and his teammates. He proves the haters/doubters wrong every time he touches the floor. Eli plays the game at his own pace and does a tremendous job using his body on drives. Look for Eli Ellis to have some of the biggest games in North Carolina this season. He is a big-time guard who plays with extreme confidence.”
“Winners step up when they are needed, and I’m not sure what else can be said about this young man but he continues to prove all doubters wrong and simply wants the ball in his hands. He was huge in the fourth quarter, with big three after big three, and even when the game was on the line, no doubt was going to get the ball… and he delivered with the game-winning three. Such a special talent that delivers every time!”
