The big news of the day was the return of wide receiver Bruce Ellington to the football practice fields. Ellington, who also plays point guard for the South Carolina men's basketball team, worked out with the football team for the first time this spring on Tuesday, on the same day that Frank Martin was introduced as the Gamecocks' new basketball coach.
"I like Coach Frank Martin," said head coach Steve Spurrier. "I think his track record speaks for itself. The guy has only been a head coach for five years in college, but Frank Martin, in my opinion, knows how to coach ball. He'd be a heck of a football coach too. I think our basketball program is in excellent hands. Like he said, we're going to pack Colonial (Life) Arena. I believe him. I believe there will be 18,000 cheering the Gamecocks."
The Gamecocks will practice again on Thursday and Friday of this week. Both practices are set for 4:15 p.m. The squad will hold its second scrimmage of the spring on Saturday morning. That practice is slated to begin at 10 a.m. in Williams-Brice Stadium.
