Temple target named showcase's top prospect

Mark Ellis, a cornerback at Williamstown High, was named the top junior prospect at the Roman’s Soldiers Showcase on Sunday in Randolph, N.J.

The 5-foot-10, 176-pounder, who is interested in Temple and Rutgers, showed that he’s back to his old form after missing the 2012 season due to suffering an ACL injury last spring at the VTO/Rivals Elite 100 Combine.

Ellis also named  the top cover man, regardless of class, at Roman’s event. He constantly shadowed receivers and broke up several passes during the one-on-one drills.

In addition to Temple and Rutgers, Ellis is receiving interest from West Virginia, Penn State, Massachusetts and James Madison. So far, he doesn’t have any scholarship offers due to teams waiting to see how he performs at this summer's camps.

Here’s a video of Ellis working out at the event.
