Wally Ellenson hasn’t played a single minute in the Big Ten this season. And apparently, he didn’t like that.
Ellenson has decided to leave the men’s basketball team, the University announced Tuesday afternoon. The Rice Lake, Wis., native will instead join the men’s track and field team full time.
Ellenson is a world-class high jumper. He won a gold medal at the 2013 Pan American Junior Championships last summer. And before that, the sophomore tied for eighth at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
