Third-Round Pick Kenrick Ellis Changes Agents

Darren Heitner of Sports Agent Blog reports that Jets third-round defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis changed agents recently.

Ellis had been represented by Howard Shatsky, who’s agency, Professional Football Management, is based in Rockville, Maryland. According to Heitner, Ellis has hired Goal Line Management, who are based in Bay Harbor Island, Florida and also represents Jets defensive end Ropati Pitoitua.

The 6-5, 346-pound began his college career at South Carolina before transferring to Hampton in 2008. Ellis earned second-team (2008) and first-team (2009-10) honors during his three seasons in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, totaling 184 tackles, including 37.5 for a loss and 7 quarterback sacks.

Immediately after the Jets used the 94th overall pick on Ellis, ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini referred to him as a “druggie” and mentioned that he’s facing up to 20 years in prison on a malicious wounding charge stemming from an altercation on the Hampton campus last year. Shatsky defended his client, referring to Cimini’s comment as an unprofessional cheap shot.

Ellis’ trial is scheduled to begin on July 12.
