Coach Steve Wojciechowski and Marquette landed another star prospect on Thursday, when Henry Ellenson chose the Golden Eagles over Kentucky and Michigan State.

Ellenson is listed as a five-star recruit and in the top 10 for multiple recuiting sites.

Shooting guard Haanif Cheatham, center Matt Heldt and point guard Nick Noskowiak are four-star recruits who are helping push Marquette’s 2015 class toward top 10 and even top-5 consideration.

Ellenson, a 6-10 forward with shooting skills and the ability to pass from the high post, can play inside or hold his own from the perimeter. He joins his older brother, Minnesota transfer Wally Ellenson, at Marquette.

“I felt Marquette was a place where I could make an immediate impact,” Henry Ellenson said. “I feel that I will have an opportunity to play multiple positions and show my versatility. Also, I was the most comfortable with the coaching staff, and a chance to play with my brother was something that was always big to me.”
