​New general manager Chris Ballard is already making some interesting moves in Indy.

According to multiple reports, former Virginia Commonwealth University basketball player Mo Alie-Cox has signed a contract to play for the Indianapolis Colts. 

Alie-Cox averaged 9.5 points and 4.2 rebounds for VCU last season and was encouraged to give football a shot when he met Dallas Cowboys legend Jason Witten at a VCU basketball game. 

The former VCU standout was not originally planning on turning to football, but was eligible for the NFL draft last season and now is able to sign with a team as a free agent.

​​This is not the first time the Colts have targeted a collegiate basketball player, as they signed former University of Miami hoops player Erik Swoope in 2014. 

Swoope has caught 15 passes for 297 yards and one touchdown in his two seasons in Indy. Let's see if Alie-Cox can find similar success.
