Quotes

"Ennis has gone from a borderline top 25 prospect to a borderline lottery pick in less than a year. What the Canadian lacks in explosiveness he makes up for in steadiness."

Gary Parrish, CBS Sports College Basketball Insider

"I've been a fan of Ennis since watching him at the Maui Invitational. He's got unreal poise for a point guard his age. There's nothing flashy about his game, but he's as steady as they come."

Chad Ford, ESPN NBA Insider
