2017 In-state RB receives ECU offer

2017 in-state RB Collin Eaddy recently received his offer from East Carolina and he spoke to InsideECUSports about Pirate football and new head coach Scottie Montgomery

Garner (N.C.) running back Collin Eaddy received an offer from East Carolina  Thursday afternoon, as his speed and elusiveness piqued the interest of Pirate recruiters.

Eaddy has only been to East Carolina once for a camp, however, he does wish to take another visit to meet with the coaching staff and see what kind amenities ECU has to offer.

"I went for a camp last year before Coach Ruffin was released," said Eaddy. "I would like to visit and meet the coaches and see the facilities."

Although Eaddy is unfamiliar with the coaching staff, and still has yet formally met most of them, he did speak highly of head coach Scottie Montgomery.

"I met coach Mo when he was at Duke and he recruited me when he was there," said Eaddy. "He is a very passionate coach and he is honest. He values character."

Eaddy also believes in Montgomery's system, and sees ECU football improving under his regime. 

"I see ECU going upward under his coaching," said Eaddy. "I do think they will be much better than last year because I know coach Mo."

Looking beyond the realm of the gridiron, Eaddy also noted the academic opportunities ECU offers.

"They can give me a good education," said Eaddy. "I'll have a degree that could set me up for years after football."

The academic aspect is very appealing to Eaddy and it punctuates with his type of work ethic.

"The school atmosphere is the most intriguing thing," said Eaddy. "I've heard many things about how active the student life is, and I would like that."

The 5-foot-11 195 pound running back finished with his junior year with 1,703 yards in 11 games.
