That was pretty quick: South Carolina Gamecocks wide receiver Bruce Ellington, who decided a week ago that he was going to leave the team in order to focus on basketball, could return to the gridiron. Citing Ellington's high school coach, ABC's Charleston affiliate reports Ellington met with Steve Spurrier over the weekend and could return for spring practice.
With Alshon Jeffery moving on to the NFL, Ellington is set to have a big year, if he chooses to come back. He was ranked second on the team last year in total yardage, behind only Marcus Lattimore. He was effective on the court as well, but the Cocks went just 2-14 in SEC play before losing head coach Darrin Horn.
According to the report, Horn's firing isn't playing a role in Ellington's reconsideration.
