"When I was leaving N.C. State, the school I wanted to go to was ECU," said McCain. "Also, my high school coach (running backs coach Antonio King) is now a coach there, so that relationship is there. Plus, it's back home!"
The 6-foot-2 185 pound Durham (N.C.) native has been playing JUCO ball in Pennsylvania and is confident that his skill set will have a positive impact on the team.
"In terms of football, I think I have a great chance to play and make an impact on the games when I get there," said McCain. "I know I will bring versatility and a winning attitude to the football program. I'll bring a working attitude and be involved in the community and the university."
That is another aspect of ECU that excited McCain's -- the education that he will receive in Greenville.
"Academically, I know when I graduate, I'll have a degree from a great school," said McCain. "I know it will be good for me."
Before we had to part ways, McCain added this final statement:
"I'm looking forward to being there and ready to bring some wins to Greenville," he said.
