This past Tuesday, ECU gained a very talented DB commit in Latheron Rogers-Anderson

ECU has been compiling a mass amount of commits through the end of the summer and into the fall

Earler this week, the Pirates landed South Carolina defensive back Latheron Rogers-Anderson

Rogers-Anderson said that he is very excited about the opportunity to play for ECU and told us what factors played into his decision. 

"Since I've known (defensive line) coach (Deke) Adams, he's  believed in me," said Rogers-Anderson. "When he told me that I have the opportunity to be a part of a great program and even have the chance to start in a great region of football was definitely a plus!"

He is also excited about the academics that ECU has to offer.

"The education is emphasized and family means a lot to them," said Anderson. "That's what I'm looking for in a school."

Rogers-Anderson was also at the N.C. State game this past Saturday and was impressed. 

"It was something I have never seen before," said Anderson. "My mom enjoyed every moment of it, too."

Rogers-Anderson said that he is ready to do whatever it takes to help the Pirates win and that he is ready to take on the challenges that come with transitioning from high school to college.

"The hardest part about the transition will be the physicality and the game speed," said Rogers-Anderson. "I'm just going to buy in to everything my coaches are going to teach me and study every team we face as much as possible. I'm grateful to be a part of Pirate Nation!"

Last season, the 6-foot-1 190 pound defensive back finished with 40 tackles and two interceptions.
