Reports are breaking that Bruce Ellington is apparently considering joining the football team. It has been suspected over the last several weeks that Ellington might make this move. He would stay with the basketball team if so.
As you probably know, Ellington was considered an excellent football as well as basketball prospect coming out of high school, and some people believe he may be a better football player. He would give us an immediate option at wildcat QB, where he starred in his senior year in high school, and he could also probably play slot WR, as well. On the other hand, the move could hurt his development as a basketball player.
I'm a little torn on whether or not I think this is a good thing for Carolina or not. It could clearly help the football team, but considering that Ellington is likely going to be the centerpiece of our basketball team for the next few years, any benefit to the football team may be outweighed by a huge detriment to the basketball team.
What do you think?
