ECU, GW Add Recruits

Darius Morales was one of two signees for East Carolina on Monday. Also, George Washington scored a wing guard from up north.

The East Carolina Pirates double-dipped on Monday signing a point guard and a big man. Mack McCarthy is set to welcome in Orlando (Fla.) Timber Creek product Darius Morales and Worcester Academy guard Corvonn Gaines.

"He's a big that runs the floor well, finishes around and above the rim, blocks shots and rebounds extremely well," Diana Neal, Florida Assault's told "He set a school record in triple doubles as well."

The Pirates have also added Gaines (6-foot-4), who is the brother of former Louisville point guard Reece Gaines. The latter is a professional player in Italy.

George Washington signed Lee Academy guard Tim Johnson. "He pulled the trigger this morning," NEBC coach Don Marsh told

"George Washington's a great school and there's an opportunity to get a starting spot. I think they did a good thing for themselves."
