Henry Ellenson: Just a Kid From Rice Lake (VIDEO)

by June 08, 2016

We got an inside look at what the average day in the pre-draft process has been like for potential lottery pick Henry Ellenson. Just a kid from Rice Lake, Wisconsin, Ellenson signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation after his freshman year at Marquette and has been bouncing back and forth between NYC and LA to workout.

Needless to say, its been a bit of a culture shock for the 6-11 19 year old.

We got up with Henry on UCLA’s campus and got a closer look at the work that he’s putting in to get ready for the Draft. Trainers Chris Johnson and Travelle Gaines are putting him through a serious grind that focuses on improving his skill set and making the talented big man more explosive. Along with his trainers, Bulls star Jimmy Butler is giving him pointers on what to expect when he hits the big stage and bright lights of the NBA.

Not a bad day for a kid from Rice Lake.

Check back tomorrow for Henry’s full pre-draft workout video and article.
