    I know Antonio Gates played only basketball in college. Julius Peppers played both until he concentrated on football his senior year. Are there any NFL players past or current who also dabbled in college basketball?

    I think there are quite a few that played. Tony Gonzales comes to mind. And Conner Barwin.

    I don't think Bo did, but he knew everything else so it wouldn't surprise me.

    Terrell Owens. Ronald Curry. Greg Paulus is giving it a go. There must be others.

    If Jim Thorpe played college basketball that's one. Not sure if he played college basketball though.

    Charlie Ward could have played in the NFL and probably would have been a high draft pick but he chose to play in the NBA instead.

    Bobby Knight recruited Michael Crabtree to play basketball before coach Leach recruited him to play football. He decided to concentrate on football though.

    That's all I got :texanbill:
