COLUMBIA, S.C. (July 15, 2005) -- Wide receiver Roscoe Crosby has agreed to a multi-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts after not being taken in the supplemental draft.
Kevin Parker, his advisor, said that Crosby was expected to report to the Colts' training camp on July 27 at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Ind.
Parker said several teams called about signing Crosby after the draft, "but Indianapolis proved to be the best situation for Roscoe."
Crosby excelled in football and baseball at Union High School. He was a likely top 10 pick in the 2001 Major League Baseball draft, but was taken by the Kansas City Royals in the second round when Crosby told baseball teams he would continue to pursue big-time football as a receiver at Clemson.
Crosby signed a $1.75 million contract with the Royals that summer. He set freshman receiving records for Clemson with 27 catches and 465 yards in the 2001 season.
