Talented power forward Henry Ellenson received a scholarship offer from Kentucky on Sunday.
Ellenson — a 6–foot-10 prospect from Rice Lake, Wis. — is considered the No. 7 overall player in the class of 2015 by Scout.com. He is one of the fastest-rising players in the class, moving up 55 spots in the latest rankings update.
His father confirmed the UK scholarship offer.
“A very exciting day and Henry is very honored,” John Ellenson told the Herald-Leader.
Ellenson participated in the LeBron James Skills Academy over the weekend, an event that was attended by Coach John Calipari and UK assistant Kenny Payne.
Duke, North Carolina, UCLA and Wisconsin are among the major programs that have offered Ellenson. His older brother Wally recently transferred from Minnesota to Marquette, and that move is expected to have an impact on Henry Ellenson’s recruitment.
Ellenson is the 11th uncommitted player from the class of 2015 with a scholarship offer from UK. Seven of those 11 are post players.
