Boogie Ellis is an agile, skilled combo guard that can knock down plenty of jumpers when gets into a rhythm.  He also is a versatile scorer that is also a surprisingly good scorer in the post.  On the other hand, he can be quite streaky with his jump shot, and he will also need to show that he can effectively run the point.  He recently transferred to USC, and a good season next year could enable him to project to be be a potential second round pick in 2024.
