4-Star QB Likes ECU

2016 Dillon (S.C.) dual-threat quarterback Avery McCall has top-tier programs after him and ECU is one of the schools to extend him an offer. Inside ECU Sports spoke with him about the Pirates and his recent visit.

There is no shortage of interest in Dillon quarterback Avery McCall. The talented signal-caller has started his junior campaign off fast and his laundry list of offers is something to marvel over.

Florida State, South Carolina, Clemson, LSU, North Carolina, Tennessee, Old Dominion and ECU have all offered McCall. Other schools Notre Dame, Duke, UCLA, Oregon and Virginia Tech have also expressed interest in him but no offers have followed.

This fall has been filled with recruiting visits for McCall and ECU was one of the schools he paid a visit to. He made it out for ECU’s 70-41 win over UNC Chapel Hill on Sep. 20.

“My visit to ECU was a great experience,” said the 6-foot-1, 195-pound McCall. “Seeing them put up points like that improved my interest. I got to meet (head coach) Ruffin McNeill for a little on my visit and we talked football and academics. I like the vibe at ECU there are good coaches and players there.”

The visit did wonders for McCall’s recruitment and he mentioned he plans to keep up with ECU throughout the process. The Pirates left such a good impression on McCall he plans on to take a trip back to campus at some point.

McCall has produced for his team again this season and added another element to his game.

“I’ve thrown for over 2,000 yard this season so far with seven rushing touchdowns and 25 passing touchdowns,” said McCall. “I have been a lot faster this season and I can run a lot better than I used to.”

This offseason will be a very important time for both McCall’s recruitment and his overall development for the next level. He is focused on improving his footwork, looking off safeties and reading defenses before becoming a senior next fall.

ECU Running Backs Coach Kirk Doll is in charge of McCall’s recruitment and he will likely keep in heavy contact with him moving forward.
