If you didn’t know about this offer until this blog post, you need to follow me on Twitter (@joannachadwick). I was on vacation on Monday, but I tweeted that Heights senior Perry Ellis had been offered by Duke.
Also picking up two offers was Heights senior Gavin Thurman (a Southeast transfer), who was offered by Wichita State and Nevada.
The Duke offer isn’t too surprising considering Ellis had a solid relationship with Jeff Capel, now a Duke assistant, who coached Oklahoma through this past season. It’s a high-profile offer among other high-profile offers such as Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, Memphis.
Will Ellis commit to Duke? I have no idea. I would imagine, though, that he’d like to have his family actually see him play in person. Ellis definitely has the academics to go to Duke, though.
What do you think? Where should Ellis go?
And what about Thurman — is he a good possibility for Wichita State?
