Bruce should be up there. Starting basketball and football is no joke.
Melvin Ingram. I don't know if it's even close.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Jeff Grantz is certainly high on my list. I'd say in top 5 all time QB's at Carolina and top 5 all time middle infielders at Carolina. He started at least one year at shortstop and at least one year at second.
"most atheltic" is always the lamest sports argument. if you play in two sports you automatically win? please
2013 SEC Championship Game: USC v LSU
Syvelle Newton...how many positions did he play again...
Corey Jenkins would have to be up there
Nate Davis? Sydney Rice *Mr. Basketball in SC"? Terrence Trammell?
Bobby Bryant was all ACC in football and baseball. Was drafted by the Yankees in 1966 and the Red Sox in 1967. He was also drafted by the Vikings in 1967 and chose to play football. He spent 14 years with the Vikings.

Jeff Raulston, no seriously, Melvin Watson could shimmy and shake with the best of em'.
280 lbs standing backflip can throw,punt and run the football. I would assume he can dunk a basketball. Probably would been a heck of a track star. My vote goes to Melvin.
Yeah he could probably help on the basketball team right now.
He was my next door neighbor growing up. Looked like an NFL player when he was 50. A goodin'
-The line of Scrimmage I have to go with Ingram DL & Wharton OL. Travelle was a good basketball player in high school as well.
-Bruce is a good call but I really think Syvelle should be at the top as well.No love for Sydney? Derrick Watson..
Rob Deboer comes to mind...BsBall catcher/ball crusher at bat, Hell of a Fullback! Sidney comes to mind since he could have went anywhere on a Basketball ride and we all know what does on the gridiron. Ingram...well big boy can sure do some crazy stuff at his 280lbs, run, punt, throw, hell, I am sure he can go to the hole on the court with the best of em! All mention in this thread are great Gamecock Athletes!!! Nice stroll down memory lane.
Big George. Incredible speed and athleticism for his size.
Ryan bethea was a good one. The smoothest wide receiver I have ever seen and that includes sterling, alshon, Sidney, and Robert Brooks. Ryan epitomized the saying million dollar arm, two cent head.

best pure athlete....Sterling
Terrance Trammel has done some amazing things he would be high on my list....simply put he is a world class athlete!
Not just starting. Making SEC all-freshmen team in both sports. Weird how that doesn't get more attention.
Too many to mention.
Would have to at least include Bryant, Grantz, Derek Watson, Melvin, Nate Davis and many others.
That said, you can't have a list and not include John Abraham. The original freak of an athlete.
nice one with Abraham. Wasn't Derek Watson Mr. Basketball too?
Sheldon Brown - we know what he did on the football field, but he also played baseball and I believe was on the track team. Is probably only the 3 sport letterman that USC has ever had. I'd also have to vote for Ryan Bethe and Allen Mitchell (QB for Joe Mo and also played baseball for June Raines) as well as Clint Mathis (soccer - cover of SI)
Sheldon Brown did not run track at USC.
Sheldon was still a heck of an athlete. Also, how about Marcus McBeth. Awesome centerfielder and booted some kickoffs. Ike Crofoot was a beast. So was Steffan Eggars.
