Ellenson, a state champion high jumper from Rice Lake, Wisc., had his first practice with the track and field team as a high jumper.

While Ellenson didn’t see a lot of time on the court this season, he will likely set his mark as a high jumper for the Gophers.
In his senior year, Ellenson cleared 7-foot-1, which was just a couple inches shy of the Olympic trail qualifier.
