Makenzie Ellis signs with Colorado State

The 2018-19 college basketball season has officially concluded, but it is clear that Ryun Williams believes that it’s never too early to start focusing on the future.

On Monday, the Colorado State women’s basketball head coach announced that the program has signed Makenzie Ellis to a financial aid agreement for 2019-20. Ellis, a 6-foot-2 forward, will have one season of eligibility remaining after graduating from Southern Methodist University.

Prior to her two seasons with SMU, Ellis began her career at the University of Colorado. As a sophomore in 2016-17, Ellis started 33 games for the Buffaloes and finished the season averaging 6.4 points per game.

"We are very excited to welcome Makenzie to Colorado State women's basketball," Williams said in a release.

"I just love how Makenzie competes. Her toughness, the intensity she plays with and the versatility to her game will be welcome additions to our lineup. She is a confident young lady with a very good basketball IQ, and will bring a mature, winning approach to our program."
