That being said the basketball class of 2011 is going to be top to bottom one of the best classes in a long time. One of the gems of the 2011 class ,that has not gotten as much publicity in terms of offers is Octavious Ellis. This power forward doesn't have the girth of most power forwards but reminds me a lot of a shorter Earl Clark. Octavious is a terror on the defensive end and brings shot blocking ability and long arms that make it difficult for most offensive foes to score against him.
With his continuing growth and improvement on the offensive side of the ball Octavious will definitely begin to see the fruits of his labor in terms of offers and increased exposure in summer camps as he gets ready for his Junior year. I expect a player of his potential to rise up the recruiting rankings.
