When asked about his future ambitions in the game Ellis said: “I’d really like to continue my basketball development by gaining a place at Myerscough College, that would allow me to continue my studies whilst playing basketball, and I’d ultimately like to get a chance to play professionally in the NBA in the USA.

“But I know there’s a lot of hard work, training and studying ahead of me to reach that goal!”
