Ellis earned his Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from Azusa Pacific University (Ca.). He competed for the Cougars for four seasons, serving as team captain during his senior year. Ellis earned All-Golden State Conference honors in the long jump. During his time at APU, the Cougars claimed five NAIA national team titles (three indoor and two outdoor).

Serving as president of the APU Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Ellis traveled with the Athletes in Action sports ministry's track and field team that competed in Honduras, Guatemala and Fiji.
