Kyle Anderson isn’t the only star recruit making his decision this week.

Perry Ellis, a 6-foot-8 forward from Wichita Heights (Kan.), will announce his commitment on Wednesday during a press conference at his high school. The announcement will take place at 2:45 local time.

Ellis is down to four schools: Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky and Wichita State.

“Ellis plans to sign a letter of intent with his final choice in November, during the early signing period,” Joe Auer, his high school coach, stated in an email.

Ellis can score in a variety of ways, with his back to the basket or in the mid-range while facing up. He knows how to finish at the rim, and runs the floor effectively. Ellis is ranked No. 27 in’s Top 100.
