Any doubts I had about South Carolina Melvin Ingram’s athletic ability and a possible transition to linebacker were eliminated when I asked him if he played basketball in high school
“Yes sir,” said Ingram
And what position did you play?
I’m sorry, did you say point guard?
“Yes, sir,” Ingram said.
I was too dumbfounded to ask the follow-up question, but Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times bailed me out, asking if Ingram was a pass-first guard or a shooter.
“I was a scorer,” he said.
