East Carolina recently offered 2018 in-state running back Marcus Caldwell.
“It feels good,” said Caldwell. “I’m very glad that they’ve offered me.”
In his sophomore season at West Forsyth High School, Caldwell had 131 carries for 951 yards and 11 touchdowns. Along with running back, he plays cornerback on defense and is a big-play threat on special teams.
“I love being on the field honestly,” he said. “Wherever the coach puts me, I just go out there and play.”
Caldwell has been in contact with ECU running backs coach Antonio King.
“The recruiting process has been going really good,” he said. “I’ve been enjoying talking to coaches and it’s starting to pick up.”
The 6-foot, 180-pound Caldwell is eager to get his game ready for the next level.
“I want to get bigger, faster, and stronger,” he said. “I know the college game is a totally different ball game.”
Caldwell has gained a lot of interest from schools in the SEC and ACC. Besides ECU, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech have also offered.
“I want to thank my family, friends, coaches and everyone who has been recruiting me.” said Caldwell.
