  • Aaron Ellis

    Does anyone else see flashes of awesomeness from Ellis like I do? They come quickly and not very often due to his small role, but I can tell he has some excellent skills and that he's going to be a pretty good player sooner than later.

      i agree with you, and i think once gregg gets his own players in here, he will have a better chance at succeeding

        I think that we are going to be in a great position in 2 years with Durley and Ellis in our frontcourt.

          He's definitely long and athletic, and I expect (hope) that more playing time will bring out the AE we are all hoping for...

            Aaron could end up being a great player (like X?) but he needs to work really hard to get there.
            Some posts are not visible to me.
            Don't worry too much about it. Just do all you can do and let the rough end drag.

              i agree with you that we will be in good position in the front court, but Ellis is more of 3, than a post player, but we will still have Stutz and Ehimen hopefully in the front court.

                Yea, he's going to have to gain some muscle, he's a stick!

                  Talk about a leap in height, having a 6-7/6-8 '3' man!! I don't really know how well he shoots, though.

                  Hopefully this season isn't a good barometer of that.

                    I'm expecting him to be more of a slasher than a straight shooter. Similar to Jamar Howard or Keith Langford of KU.

                      I haven't seen the outside shot that others have, but he certainly played well in spurts tonight. Durley mighta become a star under MT, but I cannot fathom him coming back under this regime.

                        Eliis strikes me as a raw project. In that perspective he looks like a player who could show a lot of development.

                        Ellis appears quick enough to hold his own against some shorter wing players, so hecould be a huge mismatch on offense and not a liability on defense.

                        WSU could have a legitimate front court lineup that goes 7', 7', 6'8" in a couple of years. If that's the plan then next year's 10-deep roster looks like Mekel, Murry, Hannah, Hatch at G. Hawins, Ellis at wing. Clemente, Stutz, Orupke at 4/5 and Gris rotating at 3/4.

                        Make what you want of that rotation or the fact there are some current pl;ayers missing from the rotation.
                        The future's so bright - I gotta wear shades.
                        We like to cut down nets and get sized for championship rings.

                          The early line on him was that he has a great jumper. That can't really be evaluated right now because the entire team is suffering from the shooting yips, but I've heard him as more of a shooting 3 than a slashing 3.

                          Regardless, the guy has great size for the position and is going to be a beast by his junior year.

                          Just get that man a sammich! Send him to Spangles! EVERY day is a Wild Cherry Mudslide day for him!

                            I saw him sky for a rebound and then immediately spring for a nice hooked putback. I asked myself where has that move been hiding?

                              I guess it's been hiding on the bench, where he's been stashed for a majority of the year.
