Alex McClamb Likes ECU

2016 defensive back Alex McClamb from Rolesville High School (Rolesville, NC) is still looking for his first offer from a Division-Ischool, ECU is one possibility. IES spoke with him about his recruiting process and more.

Alex McClamb is a 5-foot-9 defensive back from Rolesville High School (Rolesville, NC) has received offers from Division-II schools, but is still looking for his first Division-I offer. East Carolina is one of the schools he is waiting to get an offer from.

McClamb spoke with Donnie Kirkpatrick and was told that Kirkpatrick liked his game film. Kirkpatrick also told the Rolseville product that the game film would be looked at by defensive backs coach (name of DB coach).

The senior defensive back has been to ECU twice. He has attended the past two ECU spring games. During his time there he got to see he campus and liked what he saw.

“The campus was nice,” said McClamb. I like how everything is on the campus. I feel like it would be a good fit for me there. There’s not a lot of distractions and I can focus on football, books, and studying.”

Although he thinks ECU is a good fit, McClamb does not mind larger schools. He also wants to go to a school with a good coaching staff and wants to go to a good academic school.

“I want to go to a school with good academics first,” said McClamb. I want to go to a school that will make me a better man. And the coaching staff, hopefully I can have a good vibe with the coaching staff.”

On the field he describes himself as a balanced defensive back, crediting his coverage skills and ability to help stop the run. McClamb feels strong against the run and coaches can see that on film.

“I feel like I’m more balanced in coverage,” said McClamb “I mean, I can cover, but on film I feel like I’m strong coming down and covering the run and forcing plays back inside and make impact plays in the backfield.”

  This season the 165-pound McClamb is trying to focus on becoming more of a leader. He is hoping to lead by example and try to make everyone better around him.

Sometime after the season he will look over his options and make a decision. He hopes to visit ECU again. McClamb is being actively recruited by Kentucky and was told by Florida that he could be a walk-on for the team. He is also being looked at by Coastal Carolina.
