Report: New Mexico State adding JuCo transfer

New Mexico State has landed a commitment from the junior college ranks in shooting guard Chance Ellis.

The 6-foot-5 guard from New York pledged to the Aggies on Tuesday night, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.

Ellis started 14 games during his freshmen year at the New Mexico Military Institute, averaging 14.9 points per game while shooting 41.8 percent from the floor and 42.8 percent on nearly nine 3-point attempts per game.

The Aggies return much from last year’s 23-11 squad, but lost big man Patrick Sikiam to the NBA Draft. Ellis’ addition should give New Mexico State quite a bit of options on the wing, and certainly a serious 3-point threat there as well.
