Marcus Holton transfers to Pirate Nation

Marcus Holton, who currently attends Georgia Military College, is transferring to ECU, adding talent to the defensive side of the ball

Georgia Military College cornerback Marcus Holton has decided to take his talents to Greenville and join forces with East Carolina .

The 6-foot-1 170 pound cornerback commented that it is excited to be committed to such a  great school, and noted that it was the persistent recruiting efforts from the coaching staff that really made him want to come to East Carolina.

"It's a great feeling to be committed," said Holton. "Knowing that you are committed is a great feeling. ECU just felt like a great fit for me. None of the other schools were recruiting me as hard as ECU was."

On his visit, Holton was blown away by the entire ECU complex, and cannot pinpoint an exact favorite aspect; he loves all of it.

"Just about everything stood out to me," said Holton. "I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it was."

He also said he's wiling to do whatever the coaches need, and has a great feeling about everyone on the coaching staff.

"Whatever the coaches want I'm going to give," said Holton. "I feel great about all the coaches; all of them have great histories." 

Holton is very excited to join a program he feels is going in a positive direction.
