Bruce Ellington spoke to the media Tuesday following the USC football team’s workout. It is the first time he’s talked publicly since he decided to join the Gamecock football team. Ellington was the leading scorer on the basketball team as a freshman last season.
Ellington said he had been considering playing football for a while and decided to make the move shortly after the first round loss in the SEC Tournament this month. Ellington said he still plans to rejoin the basketball team after football season ends. However, he will focus on football, not basketball this spring and summer.
Ellington was a two sport star at Berkley High School.
