No word yet on why Ellis backed out of his commitment; he originally chose Duke over North Carolina, Memphis, USC and San Diego State back in November.
Memphis is expected to be a major player in Ellis’ recruitment going forward, according to multiple sources.
Ellis, who is ranked No. 25 overall in USA Today Sports’ Chosen 25 for 2019, was a Jordan Brand All American and one of the top players at the prestigious Nike Peach Jam last summer, averaging 17 points a game for the Oakland Soldiers.
