Indiana adds juco super to Class of 2007...
By Van Coleman

Kelvin Sampson and his Indiana Staff have added one of the top juco wingmen in the country in Jamarcus Ellis...

We caught up with Chipola CC, FL Head Coach Greg Heiar this afternoon and he confirmed his star wing man 6-5 Jamarcus Ellis is headed to Indiana.

"Jamarcus was not going to sign early," Coach Heier told Hoopmasters. "But, Indiana just stayed on him, it was their relentless effort to see and recruit him that changed his mind."

"The good job Coach Sampson had done at Oklahoma with juco players also was a big plus to Jamarcus," Coach Heier said.

Jamarcus Ellis averaged 13.5 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game for Chipola last winter. He will be rated among the nation's top twenty juco talents this fall. He is an excellent defender (2.5 steals an outing), and can flat out explode to the hoop off the dribble or stick jumper inside the arc.

He chose Indiana over interest from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, LSU, Texas A&M, and Iowa.
