Perry Ellis close to a decision?

The recruitment of Perry Ellis could be nearing its end. According to his mommy, Perry Ellis will decide after all of his in-home visits. The Ellis family hosted Bill Self last Friday, Frank Martin of Kansas State on Monday, Wichita State last night, and Coach Cal will be the final in-home visit on Friday. The visits from the four schools will be their last effort to recruit the 6-foot-8 forward before he makes his decision.

It’ll be hard to pull Ellis away from one of the three in-state schools recruiting the Kansas product, but I like Coach Cal being the last person Ellis sees before he decides. He’s been all over this kid from the start and Friday night will be his last chance to leave an impression.

Ellis doesn’t have any visits set up so this could be the end. We’ll see.

    I swear I was at Hillman college and nowhere near Kansas when Perry Ellis was conceived.

    My gut says Kansas. Why announce you will decide soon immediately after Kansas home visit and b4 Cal visits?

    I hate when people (Lachlin McLame for example) talk about the majority of UK’s basketball titles happened 30-50 years ago so who cares? Does this nerd not think college basketball will be going on 200 years from now? Will our great great grand kids not care about history? Why have history class in school? Lachlin Mclain couldn’t get tang if he was an astronaut.

    Actually Cal cooled on him a bit and came at him hard towards the end so who knows….?

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see him head to K-State to play for Psycho Martin.

    There was someone at most of his AAU games so to say that Cal doesnt want him would be an understatement. But, if he came to UK would it deter somethin like McGary? Even though he may be a long shot anyway. Didnt Ellis’ parents go to KU? I would be shocked if he left the state of Kansas. He will probably commit along with Kaleb T for KU. Lord knows Kansas needs some good recruits. Self has been slacking since Cal took over at UK. Fact is, Self NEEDS Ellis while Cal doesnt. Seems to me Cal is just pickin on Self lol
