Ennis has been named a finalist for the Bob Cousy award as the best point guard in the country, earned a spot on the Wooden Award ballot, was named a second team All-ACC player and was on the ACC All-Freshman team.

He averaged 5.5 assists and 2.1 steals per game, becoming the only freshman to ever lead the ACC in assists and steals. He also ranked 9th in the nation in assist/turnover ratio.
