Oct 9, 2014 11:05 AM

Henry Ellenson, ranked No. 4 in the ESPN 100, has committed to Marquette over finalists Michigan State and Kentucky, he told ESPN.

Ellenson will join brother Wally on the Golden Eagles' roster and will give coach Steve Wojciechowski his first five-star recruit since taking over the program last April.

"I felt Marquette was a place where I could make an immediate impact," he 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."

Todd Mayo Leaving Marquette To Pursue Pro Career

Jul 30, 2014 6:18 PM

Todd Mayo, the brother of O.J. Mayo, plans to leave Marquette University before his upcoming senior season and pursue professional basketball in the NBA Development League or overseas, sources with direct knowledge of his decision told RealGM on Wednesday.

Mayo confirmed his choice to leave Marquette, and he told RealGM that he expects to sign in the D-League and place his name in the 2015 NBA Draft.

“I’m looking forward to the D-League and just learning and getting better,” Mayo said by phone on Wednesday afternoon.

In his junior season, Mayo was Marquette’s third-leading scorer at 11.3 points per game while shooting 46.1 percent from the field. The 6-foot-3 guard played 30 games a season ago and was expected to emerge as a starter in 2014-15.

Mayo, 23, has received support from his family and the university in deciding to leave school. Marquette officials are expected to make an official announcement within the coming days.

Todd and O.J. Mayo reunited in Milwaukee last season, when O.J. averaged 11.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in his first year with the Bucks.
