Rock, chalk, still a Jayhawk: Ellis passing on NBA, staying at Kansas

April 13, 2015


Kansas forward Perry Ellis says he will return for his senior season.

Ellis revealed his plans at the team's awards banquet. He says: "There's still a lot left on the table."

The 6-foot-8 Ellis averaged 13.8 points and 6.9 rebounds last season. He started 34 games and surpassed 1,000 career points while helping the Jayhawks to their 11th straight Big 12 Conference title.


Ellis missed two games late in the season with a knee injury, but returned for the Big 12 Championship and the NCAA Tournament.
