Alvin Ellis Class of 2013 signs with Michigan State

UPDATE:   

6'5 Alvin Ellis, a 2013 SG from Chicago's famed De LaSalle HS has committed to Michigan State after being released from his commitment to Minnesota following the firing of Gopher HC Tubby Smith. 

ANALYSIS:

Ellis will suit up this coming season for the Spartans, once again joining fellow 2013 class member Gavin Schilling; the two were teammates as Juniors at DeLasalle.  Minutes may be hard to come by initially with Soph SG Gary Harris announcing last week he will return next season, leading what is likely to be one of the national title contenders in 2013-2014 - the Spartans return all but one player from last year's team that reached the Sweet 16.  However, he & Schilling figure to get major minutes during their Soph campaigns as MSU will lose Appling and likely Harris following next season.
