Chris Ellison is a 2008 OF/P with a 6'2'', 185 lb. frame from Norman, OK who attends Norman North HS. He has a lean athletic build with square shoulders and lots of strength projection. Ellison has smooth, easy run/throw skills and should be a top level defensive outfielder. He threw 90 mph in drills with good on line carry and uses his 6.7 speed to cover ground. Ellison is a left handed hitter with very quick hands and plus raw bat speed. He has a huge hand hitch to start his swing, which leaves him with timing issues on high velocity baseballs, but he crushes lesser pitching right now and has surprising power that should just keep improving. There are plenty of similarities between Ellison and Aflac All American Garrison Lassiter's hitting approaches and hitting tools and Ellison could really blossom with some adjustments. Ellison also took a turn on the mound and threw up to 87 mph from a low effort delivery with a big and hard 76 mph curveball. He is a good student.
