"I went down there and I liked the coaching staff and the players," Blair said. "I'll be a good fit on that team. It's a good school and I'm a big fan of Ricky Stokes and Mack McCarthy and the staff."
The N.C. native wasn't sold on staying in-state at first but slowly began to realize he wished to stay close to his native Charlotte.
"At first, I didn't think it was going to be a big deal but I kind of like it down here and it's my home."
The other thing that excited Blair about ECU was the league. He likes C-USA and is jacked up about playing against programs like Memphis.
"I think I'll be a factor in Conference USA," Blair said. "I think I can be a big time player against guys like Darius Washington. I see myself having a big role over there. I'd like to be freshman of the year."
ECU wouldn't mind either.
