Henry Ellenson Talks College Choices

 Rice Lake (WQOW) -- One day after news broke about Henry Ellenson's college choices, the Rice Lake senior talks about why he's only taking official visits to Marquette, Michigan State, and Kentucky.

Ellenson told News 18 Sports Director Bob Bradovich Wednesday night that he plans to visit Michigan State on September 20, and Marquette on September 26.

Thursday, Ellenson says he hasn't yet set a date to visit Kentucky, but he will have a home visit with the Wildcats coaches in September.  As far as a favorite right now, between the Golden Eagles, Spartans, and Wildcats, Ellenson says he doesn't have one, but these three stood out from the rest.

"I looked at two things when I looked at a program," says Ellenson, "I looked at the coaches, and then I looked at the playing style, so I looked at the coaches who can develop players to get them to the next level, that was huge for me 'cause my biggest goal is to get to the NBA, so I looked into that and then I looked at playing style, 'cause I'm a versatile player, and I just don't want to play in the post, I just don't want to play, get stuck in the corner, so I looked into that."

 Ellenson says his final decision will likely come down to a comfort factor with the school and the coaches.
