Former Virginia Commonwealth basketball player Mo Alie-Cox has found an NFL home.
The 6-foot-6 tight end has signed with the Indianapolis Colts, the team announced Friday.
Alie-Cox, who worked out for NFL teams earlier this month, was eligible for the 2016 draft and has been a free agent since then.
Indianapolis has on its roster another player who made the transition from the hardwood to the gridiron in Erik Swoopes, who was a standout for the University of Miami basketball team.
