Interview transcript

Bo Hines, WR, 6-1, 190 lbs, Charlotte Christian

When did you hear from ECU and which coach recruited you?

"Actually I didn't hear from ECU until last Wednesday," Hines said. "(Inside Receivers) Coach (Donnie) Kirkpatrick called me with the offer, it's really exciting."

What have you heard about ECU?

"Great fan base, I heard the fans are really behind the team," Hines said. "I've also heard from many people that it's a fun school to be at and that the athletic facilities are really nice."

Have you had a chance to visit yet?

"I have not had a chance to visit yet but I'm definitely trying to make my way out to ECU soon."

How did last season at Charlotte Christian go?

"It went great, we won the state championship." Hines said. Bo had an 83-yard catch-and-run touchdown in that game. Charlotte Christian beat Providence Day by a score of 24-21, capturing their first NCISAA State Football Title since 2008.

What have you been working to improve on in the off-season?

"Route running," Hines said. "I only played receiver for the last eight games of the season, I feel confident with the catching aspect of it but will definitely be working hard to improve on my routes."

I know you have multiple offers, when do you plan on making your decision?

"Right now I plan to make my decision sometime around early May," Hines said. "It's a lot to think about and I want to make sure I make the right decision."

Final thoughts

Bo Hines is a talented wide receiver and would be a great pickup for ECU in 2014. Hines played both running back and slot receiver last fall until ultimately finishing the season as a wide-out. His coach wanted him to touch the ball 20 times a game which speaks volumes about his play making ability. Bo is a strong player with solid speed, he bench presses 275 pounds, squats 425, and runs the 40-yard in 4.41 seconds. If he ends up committing, ECU will have found themselves another versatile receiver that offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley should be licking his chops over. Hines has confirmed offers from Ohio, NC State, Nebraska, Charlotte, Ball State and UMass.
