James Ennis Interview

Long Beach State guard/forward James Ennis is no stranger to working hard to get where he wants to go. He began his career at little known Ventura College in Southern California and after two years there was offered a scholarship at Long Beach State. After helping his team to an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2012, Ennis led his team in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots on his way to Big West Player of the Year Honors in 2013. He averaged 16.5 points and 6.7 rebounds per game during his senior year and was a Honorable Mention on the 2013 AP All-American team. He isn’t a household name but he knows what it takes to be successful at the next level and isn’t afraid to put in the work to make that happen. His strong PIT performance has earned him an invite to the Chicago predraft camp in 10 days. We recently got a chance to catch up with James to talk a little bit about his senior year at Long Beach State and what he is doing to get ready for June’s Draft.
