Heights basketball player Perry Ellis has set three of his four in-home visits with college coaches.

Ellis narrowed his list to four schools earlier this month — Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Wichita State.

Ellis, a 6-foot-8 forward, will meet with Kansas coaches on Sept. 9, followed by Kansas State on Sept. 12. Wichita State makes its pitch on Sept. 13.

The Ellis family has yet to finalize a date with Kentucky. That meeting is expected to be the final one.

Ellis will play in the Boost Mobile Elite 24 this weekend in Venice Beach, Calif. Ellis will play for the Raymond Lewis team, coached by former Syracuse star Jason Hart and assisted by NBA players Brandon Jennings, Kevin Love and ex-Duke star Jason Williams.

The game will be televised on ESPNU (Channel 244) at 6 p.m. Saturday. The Raymond Lewis team will play Marques Johnson, coached by Grant Rice, Tyreke Evans, Kemba Walker and John Wall.
