A week after deciding he would exclusively play basketball for South Carolina, Gamecocks receiver Bruce Ellington has reportedly re-opened the possibility of being a two-sport athlete.
Speaking with WCIV in Charleston, Ellington’s former high school coach, Jerry Brown, said Ellington had a conversation with South Carolina WR coach Steve Spurrier Jr. over the weekend about coming back to the team. Ellington has been on the Gamecocks basketball team since 2010, but decided to add football to his list this past year.
In a related note, South Carolina basketball coach Darrin Horn was fired last week, but Ellington says that did not affect his decision to reconsider football.
Ellington posted 707 all-purpose yards in 2011, with 211 receiving yards, 106 rushing yards and 390 yards on kick returns.
