COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's Bruce Ellington has picked football over basketball, giving up his final seasons in each sport to enter the NFL draft.

The 5-foot-9 Ellington played point guard for the Gamecocks basketball team and was a receiver on the football squad the past three seasons. But it was on the football field where Ellington had the most success. He led South Carolina with 49 catches for 775 yards and eight touchdowns this season.

Ellington may have had his best game in the eighth-ranked Gamecocks' 34-24 win over No. 19 Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl Wednesday. He caught six passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns, plus threw a 9-yard TD pass to South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw.

Ellington played basketball his freshman season before adding football as a sophomore.
